Is Your Child A Candidate for Myopia Management?

(972) 378-0707

Why Myopia Control Matters

Myopia, more commonly known as nearsightedness, is a vision condition that plagues millions of children worldwide. When a child is nearsighted, distant objects appear blurry, while those up close remain crystal clear. It's a condition that impacts their vision and can affect various aspects of their daily lives.

The good news is that myopia can be managed. Myopia management is a proactive approach aimed at slowing down or even halting the progression of myopia in children. By intervening and seeking expert solutions, you can help ensure your child's visual health remains strong as they develop.

Exploring myopia management options is not just a choice; it's a commitment to safeguarding your child's visual health and well-being.

Understanding Myopia and How it Affects Children

Myopia often begins during childhood and, if left unmanaged, can progress and lead to more severe nearsightedness. This progression increases the risk of developing sight-threatening eye conditions like glaucoma, cataracts, or retinal detachment later in life.

Common Symptoms of Childhood Myopia

Children experiencing myopia may exhibit symptoms such as:

  • squinting
  • headaches
  • eye strain
  • difficulty seeing the whiteboard at school
  • needing to sit close to the TV

If you've noticed these signs in your child, it's essential to schedule an eye exam to assess their eye health and determine their level of myopia.

Why Early Intervention is Necessary

Effective myopia management requires early intervention. Catching myopia early and slowing the condition’s progression can significantly reduce the risk of developing high myopia, which is associated with developing severe eye conditions later on.

Exploring Myopia Management: Causes and Risk Factors

Understanding myopia's causes and risk factors in children is essential for effective management. Several key factors contribute to the development of myopia, impacting children's vision and overall eye health:

  • Myopia Runs in the Family

    A family history of myopia increases the likelihood of your child developing this condition, emphasizing the importance of proactive management.

  • The Impact of Too Much Screen Time

    Excessive hours spent reading or using digital screens significantly increase the likelihood of myopia development in children, highlighting the need to balance screen time with outdoor activities.

  • Inadequate Outdoor Exposure

    Children who don't spend enough time outdoors are at a greater risk of developing myopia. Outdoor activities and natural light play an essential role in maintaining good vision.

  • Childhood Onset and Rapid Progression

    Myopia often emerges during childhood and may progress more rapidly during growth spurts. Early intervention during these crucial years is essential for slowing its progression and preserving clear vision.

I am not new in the area, but had not ventured out to find eye care since moving to my area. I found... trinity eye care through someone else, and decided to give it a try. They are extremely thorough, up-to-date on their technology that they use, and immensely informative. I am so happy that I was able to find Dr. Youngblood and enjoyed working with for my eye care.

I’ve been a long time patient of Dr. Pang’s at Trinity Eye Care. I’ve had years of wonderful e... xperiences. Today was my first time seeing Dr. Youngblood and I’m so happy to say that she was amazing too! It’s such a great feeling knowing that no matter who I see I will be taken care of in the best way. I’ve been a patient since 2010 and I will always be one!! Love the Trinity Eye Care team!

Professional, courteous and friendly staff. There is virtually no waiting time. I have already refer... red one person to this office, a second one is possible in the near future.

Not only are Dr. Pang and Mrs. Pang so incredibly kind, but they and the whole staff (shout out to M... ike and Kristina as well!) take the time to truly care and understand your needs and concerns. I was feeling a bit hopeless with my eyes and struggled to explain what was going on, and it's such a relief that people like Dr. Pang exist. Dr. Pang has been so thorough and meticulous and just all around wonderful, and I'm so fortunate that he is in the area. Coming here has been a real game changer for me and I'm so appreciative to everyone at the office. Again, just thank you so so so much!

Christina at the front made us feel very welcome and helped us through the checkin /checkout process... with professionalism and a constant smile. The office had very advanced machines to test various aspects of my eye health. Dr. Pang was extremely knowledgeable and explained all of the steps to me as well a really listened to my vision challenges to ensure my Rx was perfect for me. Eileen was very knowledgeable about lenses and contacts as well as my insurance coverage. Overall great experience and highly recommend!

Exceptional service
- May. 22, 2023
Been coming here for 3 years and will probably keep on coming until Dr. Pang retires. Everyone is in... credibly personable and remembers details about you even if you only come once a year for your annual check up. Before, I was dealing with undiagnosed vertical heterophoria and couldn’t figure out why I was having constant eye strain and migraines. Dr. Pang and his staff were able to take me in and diagnose me quickly. My migraines have improved significantly since. So glad I found Trinity Eye Care. Special shoutout to Aileen, Dr. Pang’s wife, for having the best taste in eyeglasses and making choosing one a breeze. And another shoutout to Kristina, at the front desk, for making sure the clinic and everything runs smoothly.

I have been with Dr. Pang for over 20 years! I recommend Trinity Eye Care!!
