Myopia Control

We Are Alabama’s Experts in the Control & Reduction of Myopia

We Work With Our Patients to Systematically Reduce or Prevent Nearsightedness

A relatively new process, though one that is well documented and rooted in sound research, myopia control reduces the risk of permanent vision loss from eye diseases that are linked to high amount of myopia.

Utilizing the latest technologies and processes, myopia control can provide clear eyesight without the need for long-term vision correction (via lenses or laser refractive surgery).

Myopia Control for Children

Growing Eyes Require a Diligent Strategy

As a child develops from infancy to late teen years, so too do the eyes. Myopia is caused by excessive lengthening and stretching of the eyes. Myopia Control is the strategy we use to curb myopia progression.

Myopia Control for Adults

Adults Benefit From Myopia Control, Too!

While the adult mind and body may not be as adaptable as a child’s, many techniques used for myopia control have profound benefits on our adult patients. Centered around corneal reshaping therapy and the use of multifocal contact lenses, many adults achieve great success following our myopia control program.
