Myopia Control Optometrist Macquarie

 

We are dedicated to providing comprehensive eye care, including myopia control, myopia eyewear, general optometry, and orthokeratology. Our experienced optometrists are committed to helping you achieve optimal eye health and vision.

 

Myopia Control Macquarie

 

Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is a common eye condition that causes distant objects to appear blurry while close-up objects are clear. Myopia control aims to slow down the progression of myopia in children and adolescents, reducing the risk of developing high myopia, which can increase the risk of eye diseases such as retinal detachment, glaucoma, and macular degeneration later in life. Our optometrists are trained in various myopia control techniques, including soft multifocal contact lenses, orthokeratology, and atropine eye drops. We will work with you to develop a personalised myopia control plan tailored to your child’s needs to help slow down the progression of myopia.

 

Myopia Eyewear Macquarie

 

We offer a wide range of myopia eyewear options, including prescription glasses and contact lenses designed for myopia control. Our optometrists will conduct a comprehensive eye exam to determine the best type of myopia eyewear for your needs. Myopia control eyewear is designed to help reduce myopia progression by providing clear vision while also managing the lengthening of the eye, which is associated with myopia progression. Our team will help you select the right myopia eyewear to manage your myopia and promote healthy eye development effectively.

 

General Optometry Macquarie

 

In addition to myopia control, our optometrists provide comprehensive general optometry services to address all your eye care needs. We offer thorough eye exams to assess visual acuity, eye health, and overall ocular function. Our optometrists can diagnose and manage various eye conditions, such as dry eye syndrome, eye allergies, and glaucoma. We also provide expert advice on eye hygiene, digital eye strain, and eye safety. Our team is committed to promoting optimal eye health and providing the best possible vision care.

 

Orthokeratology Macquarie

 

Orthokeratology, also known as ortho-k, is a non-surgical, reversible method of myopia control that involves wearing custom-designed rigid gas-permeable contact lenses overnight to reshape the cornea temporarily. This allows for clear vision during the day without needing glasses or contact lenses. Our optometrists are experienced in fitting ortho-k lenses and will provide thorough assessments and ongoing monitoring to ensure the safety and effectiveness of the treatment. Ortho-k lenses are an excellent option for those who want to manage their myopia without wearing contact lenses or glasses during the day.

 

At our Myopia Control Optometrist service in Macquarie, we are committed to providing you with the highest standard of eye care. Our experienced optometrists are trained in various myopia control techniques, and we offer a wide range of myopia eyewear options, including prescription glasses and contact lenses. We also provide comprehensive general optometry services, including diagnosis and management of various eye conditions, as well as orthokeratology for myopia control.

Frequently Asked Question

Myopia, also known as shortsightedness, is a common refractive error of the eye that causes distant objects to appear blurry, while objects close up are seen clearly. It occurs when the shape of the eye causes light to focus in front of the retina instead of directly on it, resulting in blurred vision in the distance.

The most common symptom of myopia is blurry distance vision. Other symptoms may include squinting, eye strain, tired eyes, headaches and moving closer to see things.

Myopia can be diagnosed through a comprehensive eye examination by an optometrist or ophthalmologist. The eye exam may include tests such as visual acuity, refraction, and measurement of the length and shape of the eye.

While myopia cannot be completely prevented, there are some measures that may help reduce the risk of its progression. These include spending time outdoors, taking regular breaks from near work, maintaining good posture while reading or using digital devices, and practising proper visual hygiene.

There are several treatment options for myopia called Myopia Control which helps slow down the progression of myopia in children and adolescents. Techniques include specialty glasses, soft multifocal contact lenses, orthokeratology (ortho-k) and atropine eye drops. General single vision glasses does NOT slow down myopia. 

Myopia is typically a progressive condition that tends to worsen over time. However, with proper management and treatment, the progression of myopia can be slowed down or even stopped completely to minimise further complications. 

Yes, people with high myopia have a much higher risk of developing other eye conditions, such as cataracts, glaucoma, retinal detachment, and myopic maculopathy. However, any increase in prescription comes with a higher risk of getting conditions. Regular eye examinations and proper myopia management are essential to prevent or minimise the risk of these complications.

Yes, it is recommended to consult an optometrist or ophthalmologist for a comprehensive eye examination if you suspect you or your child may have myopia or any other eye condition. An eye care professional can provide accurate diagnosis, personalized treatment options, and ongoing management to ensure the best visual outcomes and overall eye health.

Most health funds will give you a rebate that you can claim for Myopia Control options such as glasses and contact lenses if you have optical cover.
