Welcome to eye&I, where we are dedicated to providing cutting-edge solutions for managing myopia, including addressing the issue of eye elongation, and safeguarding the vision of your loved ones. Let's delve into the world of myopia management and explore how it can benefit you and your family.

What is Myopia?

Myopia, commonly known as nearsightedness, is a vision condition where distant objects appear blurry while close-up objects are clear. It is a global epidemic, with an increasing number of children and young adults affected by its progression. Myopia often starts during childhood and can worsen over time, leading to high levels of nearsightedness and eye elongation.

What is Myopia Management?

Myopia management is a proactive approach to manage and slow down the progression of myopia, including the associated eye elongation, in children. It involves a range of evidence-based treatments and strategies aimed at reducing the rate at which myopia worsens. The primary goal is to minimize the risk of high myopia, which is associated with an increased likelihood of vision-threatening complications later in life, such as cataracts, glaucoma, and retinal detachment.

Why Choose Myopia Management in children?

Myopia progresses fastest in younger children, especially those under age 10.5 This means that the most important opportunity to slow eye growth is when children are younger. Myopia management aims to apply specific treatments to slow the excessive eye growth to a lesser rate. Experts agree that myopia management should be commenced for all children under age 12,6 and typically continue into the late teens.7

  • The short-term benefit of slowing myopia progression is that a child’s prescription will change less quickly, giving them clearer vision for longer between eye examinations.

  • The long-term benefit is reducing the lifetime risk of eye disease and vision impairment. This risk increases as myopia does3 with the good news being that reducing the final level of myopia by only 1 diopter reduces the lifetime risk of myopic macular degeneration by 40% and the risk of vision impairment by 20%.8
