Myopia Management Services
Treating Nearsightedness & Other Vision Problems
Myopia management is a treatment option our clinic uses to slow down the progression of nearsightedness in children. The goal is to control or delay the speed at which nearsightedness, a condition where nearer objects are clear but farther objects are blurry, increases in youth.
When a child exhibits signs of being nearsighted, such as squinting, frequently rubbing eyes, sitting too close to the television or getting frequent headaches, we can do a child-friendly vision check. If a level of nearsightedness is present, we can weigh whether myopia management is the right approach. For many children, controlling myopia when they are young can lead to fewer vision problems when they are older. Successful management early in life can mean a reduced prescription later on, as well as fewer required prescription updates.
Here in our office we offer 3 different modalities to manage myopia: Orthokeratology, MiSight & speciality soft contact lenses, and prescription Atropine Eye drops. Our doctors will help you determine which treatment option is best for your child’s needs.
If you are a teen or adult with nearsightedness, we have options for you too. Correct your vision using the approach you’re most comfortable with. We can help you with prescription eyeglasses, contact lenses, LASIK, corneal reshaping or other approaches personalized to your situation.
Farsightedness & Astigmatism
The eye specialists at Partners Pacific Optometry also help individuals of all ages who have farsightedness or astigmatism. Less common than nearsightedness, farsightedness is the condition where far objects can be seen clearly but near vision is blurred.
Astigmatism results from having a different eye curvature. It can lead to seeing the world in a distorted way, often blurring images, skewing lights or creating double vision. A person can have astigmatism by itself or with nearsightedness or farsightedness. These vision problems can be corrected through contact lenses, prescription glasses or LASIK procedures. We’ll be happy to go over options with you.
