Myopia Management

Myopia (nearsightedness), affects millions of adults and children worldwide. This condition occurs when a person’s eyeball is too long, or the cornea or lens has an irregular shape.

If both parents are nearsighted, there is a very good chance their children will be nearsighted as well.

Recent studies prove the more time spent outdoors will slow the onset or progression of myopia. This is important, as myopia can seriously impact long term eye health (beyond needing eyeglasses) if left untreated. TACOMA EYE is the only area clinic that has a myopia management center. At TACOMA EYE, we are here to answer any questions you may have and after a complete exam may suggest further testing to evaluate and manage your child’s myopia without the need for surgery.
