MiSight and Myopia Control
In today’s digital age, myopia, commonly known as nearsightedness, has become increasingly prevalent among children and young adults. Fortunately, advancements in eye care have led to effective myopia control options, such as MiSight contact lenses. At the forefront of myopia control, the Myopia Control Center of Maryland is dedicated to preserving children’s vision and eye health through a comprehensive approach that includes MiSight and other proven myopia control methods.
Understanding Myopia: Myopia is a refractive error that causes blurred distance vision. The eyeball’s elongated shape causes light to focus in front of the retina rather than directly on it, resulting in difficulty seeing objects in the distance. Myopia typically emerges during childhood and progresses until early adulthood. If left unmanaged, high levels of myopia can increase the risk of serious eye conditions later in life, such as retinal detachment, glaucoma, and cataracts.
Introducing MiSight Contact Lenses
MiSight contact lenses have emerged as a breakthrough in myopia control. These innovative soft contact lenses are specifically designed for children and target the progression of myopia. By utilizing Dual-Focus Technology, MiSight lenses correct the refractive error while simultaneously controlling the elongation of the eyeball responsible for myopia progression.
At the Myopia Control Center of Maryland, our primary focus is providing personalized myopia control solutions tailored to each child’s unique needs. Our expert team of eye care professionals understands the significance of early intervention in managing myopia progression. We offer a comprehensive range of myopia control options, with MiSight contact lenses playing a central role in our treatment approach.
MiSight's Role in Myopia Control
MiSight contact lenses are an integral part of our myopia control strategy. These lenses provide clear vision while simultaneously exerting a therapeutic effect to slow down the elongation of the eyeball. By addressing both the visual correction and myopia progression aspects, MiSight contact lenses have shown remarkable efficacy in controlling myopia in children.
Personalized Treatment Plans
At the Myopia Control Center of Maryland, we believe in the power of personalized treatment plans. Each child undergoes a comprehensive eye examination to assess their myopia progression and ocular health. Based on the findings, our experienced optometrists create tailored treatment plans that may include MiSight contact lenses, orthokeratology (Ortho-K), atropine eye drops, or a combination of these methods.
Orthokeratology (Ortho-K): In addition to MiSight contact lenses, our center offers orthokeratology (Ortho-K) as an effective myopia control option. Ortho-K involves wearing specialized gas-permeable contact lenses overnight. These lenses gently reshape the cornea, providing clear vision during the day without the need for glasses or contact lenses. Ortho-K is particularly beneficial for children and parents seeking a non-surgical and reversible myopia control method.
Atropine Eye Drops: Another treatment option available at the Myopia Control Center of Maryland is the use of atropine eye drops. Low-dose atropine eye drops have shown promising results in slowing down myopia progression in children. This safe and effective treatment is administered at bedtime and works by temporarily relaxing the eye’s focusing mechanism.
Comprehensive Care and Ongoing Monitoring: Our commitment to children’s vision and eye health extends beyond the initial treatment phase. The Myopia Control Center of Maryland provides comprehensive care, ensuring ongoing monitoring of myopia progression and adjusting treatment plans as needed. Regular follow-up visits allow us to assess the effectiveness of the
