Managing Myopia at All Ages

Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is a common vision condition that can make far away objects appear blurry and affects both children and adults.

At Insights Optical, our team can help you and your children manage myopia. We strive to help you achieve clear vision at all distances. Contact us today to book an appointment and begin your myopia control journey with us.

What Is Myopia?

Myopia can develop gradually or rapidly and usually worsens from childhood through adolescence. A routine eye exam can help your eye doctor confirm myopia and prepare the necessary prescription for your glasses or contact lenses to correct it. 

Myopia occurs when the eye becomes too elongated or the cornea has too much curvature, resulting in light entering the eye to improperly focus in front of the retina.

Common signs and symptoms of myopia include: 

  • Frequent headaches
  • Eye strain
  • Blurry vision when looking at distant objects
  • Squinting to see far away objects

Mild myopia can be difficult to notice, and in some cases, you may not experience any symptoms at all. That’s why regular eye exams can help your eye doctor stay updated on developing myopia issues.

Myopia Control at Insights Optical

At Insights Optical, we want to help you manage your myopia through comprehensive eye exams to keep your prescription up-to-date and provide innovative solutions to keep your vision clear. 

MiSight Myopia Management Lenses

MiSight contact lenses are easy to fit, soft contact lenses that are clinically proven to slow the progression of myopia for children between 8 to 12 years old.

MiSight lenses slow the elongation of your eye caused by myopia progression and reduce the risk of myopia-affected vision later in life. For more information on how MiSight contact lenses can help your children, contact us to book an appointment today.

Low-dose atropine eye drops have been effective in slowing the progression of myopia by relaxing the eye’s focusing mechanisms. The dosage prescribed is dependent on your child’s vision needs.

Atropine drops are usually placed in the eye each night at bedtime.

Slowing Down Myopia

Retinal Imaging Difference

Optomap Retinal Imaging is an essential part of every eye exam we complete at Insights Optical. By taking a high-definition photo of the back of your eye, called the retina, we can gain valuable information about your health.

In less than 1 second, Optomap allows us to take a 200o photo that gives an ultrawide 82% view of your retina all at once. Retinal imaging not only helps us find signs of eye diseases, but can tell us if you’re at risk of other health issues like stroke, heart disease, and diabetes
