Myopia Management FAQs

What is myopia management?

Myopia management uses certain treatments and technologies to slow or even halt your child's myopia progression. Our myopia control program in Rosana Square Shopping Center is unique as we have the latest technology and experience to ensure your child's vision remains stable and healthy for years to come.

Is myopia management necessary?

Myopia is more than just poor vision. Childhood myopia raises the risk of developing sight-threatening eye diseases later in life, such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and cataracts. Speak to your eye doctor about the best ways to minimize your child’s risk.

At what age does myopia (nearsightedness) usually start?

Myopia can begin as early as 6 and will usually progress until roughly age 20. The longer it progresses, and the higher the prescription, the greater your child’s risk of sight-threatening eye conditions later in life.

When should my child start myopia management?

For optimal results, myopia management should be started as soon as possible. That said, myopia control can help children and teens of all ages.

Dr Joe and his staff are very friendly and professional. My eye exam was done right on time, one of... the assistants helped me pick out my glasses & sunglasses, and I was in and out of the office in under an hour. They texted me about a week later when they were ready and I absolutely LOVE both pair of glasses. I will continue to use Dr Joe as my optometrist.

Everything about Overland Park Eye Center is perfect! I can’t think of anything that they could d... o differently that would increase the value of the services they provide to patients and customers. Over the years I have worked with or interacted with everyone who works there, and they are all friendly, competent, and helpful. They are very responsive to calls, messages, and questions. They have a great selection of eye classes, but do not pressure you to buy your glasses there after an eye exam. Even if they are busy when I go in, I always feel like I get the attention I need, and because their office runs efficiently, I never feel like I’m having my time wasted. Communication is top notice. I love this place!
