Myopia Management for Children

Early Myopia intervention can help your child now and reduce their eye health risks. We offer non-surgical treatments proven to help your child.

Stop Your Child's Vision From Deteriorating


Researchers believe that the environment kids grow up in today, with too many close distance activities (like reading and device use) and lack of outdoor play is contributing to the rapid increase in childhood myopia. While glasses and contact lenses compensate for a child’s blurry distance vision, they don’t stop your child’s vision from continuing to deteriorate. As children grow, myopia often develops as they reach school age and, untreated, progresses into the late teens.

The Danger of Myopia


Studies now show there is more to worry about with myopic eyes than the inconvenience of ever-thickening lenses. Scientific evidence has proven that myopic patients are more vulnerable to a range of sight-threatening diseases and complications.

Patients with mild myopia have a four-fold increase in the risk of retinal detachment. For those with moderate to severe myopia, the risk increases ten times. One study concluded that more than 50 percent of retinal detachments not related to trauma are associated with myopia. Other myopia risks include glaucoma, cataracts and macular degeneration.

Myopia Can Be Managed


The dangers of myopia, in conjunction with the normal challenges of subpar vision, mean it is important for parents of myopic children to manage the condition as part of your child’s eye health. The goal of myopia management is to slow or even stop the progression of myopia and reduce its impact on your child’s life. The younger myopia management begins, the more effective the treatment.

We are excited at Mill Creek Vision to announce the launch of our children’s myopia management service in partnership with Treehouse Eyes®, the country’s leading myopia management service. The revolutionary system, designed to treat your child’s myopia and significantly reduce the threat of more serious eye diseases, is one of the most important innovations since glasses were first prescribed hundreds of years ago!

Schedule an appointment today and one of our doctors will evaluate your child’s vision and make a customized treatment plan to slow or even stop myopia from progressing.

How MiSight® 1 day Works

Mill Creek Vision is proud to be one of the first practices in Mill Creek to offer the MiSight soft contact lenses for controlling myopia. These contact lenses are the first soft lenses that are FDA approved to slow down myopia progression in children.

Three years of detailed scientific trials have shown that wearing MiSight lenses reduces myopic progression in children by 59% on average. That’s good news for reducing dependence on vision correction as well as decreasing the risk of eye conditions related to high myopia.

The MiSight Brilliant Futures Myopia Management Program is a comprehensive approach to managing myopia with a single use, disposable soft contact lens, with a goal of slowing down the progression of your child’s prescription.

The ActivControl™ technology in MiSight® 1 day uses vision correction zones and treatment zones within the lenses to slow the elongation of the eyeball. By including both types of zones in the lens, it simultaneously corrects the child’s vision today, while training the eye to resist changing shape, with the goal of preserving vision for the future.
