Ways to Manage Myopia in Children

Why is myopia management vital? It's about ensuring that your child's vision remains vibrant and unburdened by nearsightedness as they develop and lessening the risk of eye diseases later in life. Controlling myopia also improves their daily quality of life and contributes to academic success.

At North Garland Vision, your child's visual well-being is one of our top priorities. We're committed to offering a range of effective myopia management treatments tailored to your child's unique needs.

Vision Correction with Orthokeratology

Orthokeratology, or ortho-k, represents a modern and innovative myopia management treatment. This non-surgical approach involves custom-designed, gas-permeable contact lenses that temporarily reshape the cornea. These specialized lenses work their magic overnight, gently correcting your child's vision, and are removed in the morning for clear vision during the day.

The various benefits of ortho-k make it an appealing choice for many parents.

  • Daytime Freedom from Glasses or Contacts

    Ortho-k affords your child the freedom to see clearly throughout the day without needing eyeglasses or contact lenses.

  • Slows Myopia Progression

    Research has shown that ortho-k can help curb the development of nearsightedness, potentially reducing the risk of more severe vision problems in the future.

  • Convenient and Safe

    Ortho-k lenses are a safe and versatile option for managing myopia in children of various ages. They are easy to use and maintain, providing parents peace of mind.

  • Improved Self Confidence

    Ortho-k lenses can significantly boost your child's self-confidence with clear vision without visible vision correction.

I have always been a patient of Dr. Suder, and I have had nothing but great experiences! Dr. Suder i... s incredibly warm, and I appreciated her patience with me as I tried various contact lenses before eventually settling on glasses. Jamie is also amazing! She is attentive and took the time to assist me in finding the best frames for my sunglasses. Not only is she friendly and knowledgeable, but she also adjusted my frames and nose pads more accurately than anyone has before. Overall, I highly recommend this practice for any of your eye care needs!

What a great place! Had gone here because it was covered by my insurance, but I'll keep coming here ... because of the fantastic service. Very professional, my eye doctor was so thorough and polite. But the star of the show was honestly Jamie who helped me go through my selection of potential glasses and helped me pick something in my price range/insurance coverage. She took a lot of care in helping me select frames that look amazing on me (I'm hopeless on this by myself) and she even found some frames to hold my old lenses until my new pair came in so I wouldn't be without. Great team, would recommend to anyone looking for a new eye doctor!

Love this place! My family all goes here and sees Dr. Suder. We love her! She’s extremely thorough... and knowledgeable. I love how she explains everything to you and she’ll answer all your questions and concerns with the utmost patience. We adore her, as well as Assma. If you’re looking to buy glasses or sunglasses here, ask for Asmma. She’s the expert!
