More and more children are developing myopia, or nearsightedness, at younger ages. Myopia almost always becomes more severe over time.
Myopia control reduces the risks associated with high myopia such as cataracts, glaucoma, myopic degeneration, retinal detachments, and of course dependence on strong eyewear.
At Accent Eyecare we offer treatment strategies such as specialized soft multifocal contact lenses and eyedrops which are proven to manage, reduce, or even prevent myopic progression. If your child is developing nearsightedness it is very important to slow the progression as soon as possible.request an appointment
