Myopia Management in El Paso, TX

WHAT IS MYOPIA MANAGEMENT?

Commonly known as nearsightedness, myopia is an eye condition that causes distant objects to appear blurry. Myopia often progresses with age — and can even lead to increased risk of eye health issues over time. That’s where University Vision Centre’s myopia management program comes in: we address nearsightedness during childhood and limit its progression using proven, child-friendly methods.

Don’t Let Myopia Impact Your Child’s Life

Myopia can hinder children as they’re developing, particularly at school, during sports, and when making friends. Eyeglasses can correct their vision temporarily, but they don’t address the underlying issue. Don’t let myopia blur the lines for your child! Our team at University Vision Centre searches for signs of myopia during our pediatric eye exams, then takes steps to keep it in check with our customized myopia management program.

Why Choose University Vision Centre for Myopia Management?

Our eye doctors are compassionate, multilingual experts who help children see better using innovative treatments and technology. Our advanced diagnostic equipment gives us a complete picture of the eye, information that we use to customize your child’s myopia management plan. We work hard to preserve their vision and are happy to provide you with exceptional eye care in the language you and your child feel most comfortable with, either English or Spanish.

Our Trusted Myopia Management Options

Our team relies on a variety of methods to treat myopia: we’ve found that there is no one-size-fits-all solution to myopia, and some solutions work better for different kids.

We often trust Ortho-K overnight lenses, which are specially designed to help slow myopia’s progression by gently reshaping the front of the eye while your child sleeps — nearsightedness comes from the eye being curved incorrectly. Another common solution, multifocal contact lenses can slow the progression of myopia by helping the patient focus, as eye strain can contribute to nearsightedness.

Our doctors are passionate about the El Paso community where they live and work, and strive to combat the progression of myopia in children of all backgrounds.
