Why Does My Child's Nearsightedness Need to Be Managed?

Myopia significantly increases the risk of developing sight-threatening eye diseases later in life, such as cataracts, glaucoma, retinal detachment and macular degeneration. The higher your child’s myopia, the greater the risk.

Although eyeglasses and standard contact lenses can correct a person’s vision, they do not treat the underlying cause of myopia or slow its progression. This is where myopia management comes in.

If you’re concerned about your child’s long-term eye health and vision, contact Park Professional Eyecare today. We can help.
