Myopia (Nearsightedness) Management Clinic

We can now slow or even stop myopia from progressing. This is accomplished with myopia control, a system of contact lenses and eye drops.

Myopia (Nearsightedness) Management Clinic

Myopia is a condition that is most associated with blurred vision at distance. It results when the length of the eyeball (axial length) is elongated. Increasing amounts of myopia do not only cause difficulty seeing. Myopia is also associated with an increase in sight threatening eye diseases such as myopic macular degeneration, cataract, glaucoma, retinal tears, holes and detachments.

The prevalence of myopia is dramatically increasing worldwide. Recent studies estimate that on average 30% of the world is currently myopic and by 2050 almost 50% of the population will be myopic.

The doctors at Bakersfield Eye Care Optometric Center have been trained and certified for treatments to help limit the progression of your child’s increasing myopia.
