Myopia Management

Myopia, or nearsightedness, is a common vision problem where close-up objects look clear but distant objects are blurry. It happens when the eyeball grows longer than it’s supposed to, or the cornea is too curved. Myopia is often a progressive disease that, if left untreated, can raise your child’s risk of developing more serious issues later in life. Myopia management can help slow the progression of this condition in children, giving them better vision now while also protecting their future eyesight.

At ProEye Vision Center, our highly trained eye doctors provide myopia management services for children in Omaha, Nebraska. Our experts will conduct a thorough evaluation of your child’s eyes to determine if myopia control is right for them.

Myopia treatment in Omaha, NE 

Prescribing regular glasses or contact lenses for myopia will correct your child’s vision, but it won’t prevent it from getting worse. That’s where myopia management comes in. At ProEye Vision Center, we use special contact lenses and other methods to slow or stop the progression of myopia in children, lowering their risk of eye problems in the future. Every patient is unique, which is why we customize treatment to fit your child’s exact needs!
