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 North Central Omaha 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.

Christine was so helpful! Everyone was friendly. It was very calm. The process was easy and I got my... glasses super fast. I never thought I would say I’m looking forward to another eye exam, but I am looking forward to seeing them again next year and knowing that it’s going to be a good experience, I’ve recommended them to all of my friends and family.

I am new to the area but my husband's family has been going to Malbar for years and my brother in la... w use to work there and still goes for his exams so I trusted his recommendation to go for our vision care. Everyone is so nice and caring and we actually enjoyed our visit even after being told how blind we were lol Dr. Felt was very informative and helpful and answered all our questions and help with our decision on the right course for healthy eyes. All the ladies are nice and caring and we'll definitely be back for our annual exams.
