PEDIATRIC MYOPIA CONTROL

Myopia Control - Unlike the past, there are therapies available to slow the progression of myopia (nearsightedness) in children. With increasing myopia, not only is vision without glasses worse, but the eye becomes weaker and more susceptible to glaucoma, myopic degeneration, cataracts, and retinal detachment.  Several treatments can modify your child's need for stronger prescriptions as they age, and Dr Herrington is certified to prescribe CooperVision's MiSight contact lens, the first FDA approved lens for myopia control.
