Myopia management refers to strategies and interventions aimed at slowing down the progression of myopia (nearsightedness) in individuals, particularly in children and adolescents. There are several reasons why individuals, parents, and eye care professionals may consider pursuing myopia management:

Prevention of High Myopia:

High myopia (severe nearsightedness) is associated with an increased risk of various eye conditions, such as retinal detachment, glaucoma, and myopic maculopathy. Slowing down the progression of myopia can help reduce the likelihood of developing these sight-threatening complications.

Improved Quality of Life:

Slowing down the progression of myopia can positively impact an individual’s daily life. It may reduce the inconvenience of needing frequent prescription changes and decrease the potential visual disturbances associated with high myopia.

Better Academic Performance:

Some studies suggest that myopia management may contribute to better academic performance in children. Improved visual comfort and reduced distraction from vision-related issues could positively influence learning and classroom participation.

Early Intervention:

Myopia management is often initiated during childhood or adolescence when the eyes are still developing. Early intervention may be more effective in controlling myopia progression compared to starting later in life.

Public Health Impact:

The increasing prevalence of myopia globally has led to a growing interest in myopia management from a public health perspective. Slowing down the progression of myopia in a large population could have significant benefits in terms of reducing the overall burden of myopia-related eye diseases.

Three main types of myopia management are available in the United States at this time. These include:
