Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is a refractive error that causes blurred distance vision. It occurs when the eyeball is slightly elongated, causing light to focus in front of the retina instead of directly on it. In children, myopia often develops and progresses during their school years.

What is Myopia Management?

Parents should be aware of these potential signs of myopia:

  • Squinting or frequent blinking
  • Holding objects close to the face
  • Difficulty seeing distant objects
  • Complaints of headaches
  • Rubbing eyes excessively
  • Tilting the head or covering one eye
  • Lack of interest in activities requiring clear distance vision, like sports or outdoor play
  • Poor performance in school
  • Eye fatigue or tiredness after visual tasks

If you notice any of these symptoms, schedule a pediatric eye exam for your child. Our Madeira Optical team can detect myopia and provide personalized treatments to slow its progression.

Don't let myopia hinder your child's visual potential. Schedule an appointment with us in Cincinnati to ensure their long-term eye health and clear vision.

Myopia Care For Kids in Cincinnati

At Madeira Optical, our experienced pediatric eye care team offers a comprehensive range of effective treatment options for myopia management in children.

One such option is soft multifocal contact lenses, specifically designed to slow the progression of myopia. These daily disposable contacts provide clear vision while effectively controlling the growth of the eye.

Another effective treatment is Orthokeratology (Ortho-K), involving FDA-approved lenses worn overnight to gently reshape the cornea, eliminating the need for daytime correction.

We also offer low-dose atropine eye drops, showing promising results in slowing myopia progression when used nightly.

We are excitedly awaiting FDA review for a new non-invasive spectacle lens option that fits standard eyeglass frames.

With our expertise in myopia management, we prioritize your child's eye health. Contact us today to schedule an assessment and determine the best treatment option.
