We are dedicated to protecting the long term vision health of children. When we realized that myopia in children was growing at such an alarming rate, we started the Myopia Control Clinic at Vision One Eyecare in order to provide the most advanced and effective myopia control throughout the Katy area.
Our niece showed signs of progressive myopia during her 5th grade year. We started her on Ortho-K. It’s been 4 years since and there have been no signs of myopic progression.
We consider it our duty as optometrist to educate the public about the ocular health risks of high myopia in young children. We have invested considerable time and money to provide our patients the most effective methods of myopia control. It is an amazing feeling to see our patients faces when they realize they have clear vision without the need of glasses or contact lenses during the day.
