Myopia Management In Austin, Texas

Who is Myopia Management for?


Myopia Management is recommended for any child with myopia. This treatment is effective in slowing the progression of myopia in children and young adults, when myopia is expected to progress faster.

Myopia Management may also be useful in preventing myopia in children or young adults who spend limited time outdoors, engage in excessive near work or whose parents are myopic.
