Myopia Management

Myopia is a condition where the cornea in the eye is misshapen. This condition leads to blurry distance vision. Myopia, or nearsightedness, is common and needs to be managed by an optometrist. At Optikos Optometry in Los Angeles, CA, our team is here to help you manage your myopia. Here are some things you need to do.

Myopia Management

Get Regular Eye Exams

Myopia is diagnosed through an eye exam. However, even after the diagnosis, it is still vital that you get regular examinations. Your eyes change throughout your life, so you want to ensure you’re aware of any problems that may appear over the years. Plus, your vision will likely change as you get older. Since myopia is controlled with vision correction, you’ll need vision exams to ensure your glasses have the correct strength. Make an appointment every year and show up for the exam. That way, you and your optometrist can solve any problems early.

Watch Your Children for Symptoms

Myopia is common in children. Ensure your child visits a pediatric eye care center for the best vision. Eye doctors can provide children with myopia management to keep their eyes from getting bad in the future. Specialized drops and contact lenses can reshape the cornea before it is too severely impacted. Ensure you know the signs of myopia in children. Look for difficulty seeing, headaches, and eye strain at school. If they show up, make an appointment with a pediatric eye care center as soon as possible. You can get them checked as quickly as they have symptoms and begin myopia management.

Reduce Screen Time

You and your children should all limit your screen time as part of myopia management. Looking at a screen for too long can cause eye strain, which is uncomfortable and can cause blurry vision and headaches. Since myopia already causes blurry vision and headaches, avoiding any extra is part of myopia control. Instead, take regular breaks from your screens throughout the day, and encourage your children to explore other types of activities. That way, the eyes have time to rest and recover despite the extra strain they might have on them.
