Video: What is Myopia?

Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, makes it harder to see things at a distance. Myopia is a major concern because it increases the risk of eye diseases, such as glaucoma or cataracts. Myopia can also affect your child’s performance in school. Our Optometrists utilize myopia control methods such as Ortho-K, atropine & multi-focal contacts.

Treating myopia at an early age (and early stage) is crucial for preventing myopia to become more severe later in life, and makes it much easier to manage both as a child and an adult.

Our eye doctors can diagnose and treat your, or your child’s, myopia, and help maintain healthy eyesight for you. Please ask our optometrists any questions you may have about myopia (nearsightedness) and all forms of treatment.

Our patients visit us from Whitehall, PA, as well as Bethlehem, Allentown, and throughout the Lehigh Valley.
