Myopia Specialists
in Omaha, NE


At Vision Specialists, we believe that the best care comes from simple, modern eye care — and perhaps no solution embodies these ideals as well as myopia management. Nearsightedness can be challenging, but we can help you get it under control easier than you may think.

What Is Myopia Control?

Myopia, commonly known as nearsightedness, is a common eye condition where people can see close objects clearly, but distance vision is blurry. When the eye isn’t shaped just right, it focuses light incorrectly, causing this “refractive vision error.” Though eyeglasses can be used to correct vision in the short term, myopia will continue to progress without proper management.

Myopia control is designed to not only correct nearsightedness, but also prevent myopia from getting worse. At Vision Specialists, we target myopia early on, ideally between the ages of 8 and 12, with several treatment options available to fit different patients.

Myopia Control Treatment Options

During a consultation for myopia control, we used advanced topography technology to accurately determine the best course of action to help treat your child’s myopia. Depending on the patient’s needs, we often recommend either Euclid Emerald Ortho-K Overnight Lenses, MiSight® Daytime Soft Lenses, or a combination of multifocal lenses and atropine eye drops.
