Changing the Way Kids See

Myopia, commonly known as nearsightedness, is commonly diagnosed in childhood and can worsen over time, increasing the risk of more severe sight conditions later in life. Well-vision professionals are seeing it develop more and more in children.


As myopia progresses, patients become dependent on contact lenses to see or glasses become thicker and heavier. Glasses add functional and cosmetic concerns, and long-term contact use may lead to harmful vision issues later in life, including:

  • Glaucoma
  • Retinal detachment
  • Cataracts
  • Myopic macular degeneration


Dunes Eye Consultants’ Myopia Control Center can help!

  • Enjoy activities without glasses or contacts
  • Protect the health and structure of the eye
  • Reduce the chance of chronic eye problems later in life, including glaucoma and retina degeneration
  • Support academic and athletic performance.


Research has uncovered the mechanisms that cause myopia to progress in kids. Dunes Eye Consultants uses research, science and the most advanced technology to halt nearsightedness progression in almost every case.

How We Do It

  • Corneal reshaping (orthokeratology) Specialized contact lenses that gently reshape the cornea when worn overnight
  • Distance centered multifocal contacts – Like standard soft contacts, these are used by patients with limited amounts of astigmatism
  • Atropine Medicated drops or ointment applied once daily that can slow myopia progression, which can be successful with young patients
  • Multifocal glasses – Children with eye positioning issues (esophoria) or patients who cannot successfully use a contact lens may respond to this treatment
