Myopia Management FAQs

What is myopia management?

Myopia management uses certain treatments and technologies to slow or even halt your child's myopia progression. Our myopia control program in Lacey is unique as we have the latest technology and experience to ensure your child's vision remains stable and healthy for years to come.

Is myopia management necessary?

Myopia is more than just poor vision. Childhood myopia raises the risk of developing sight-threatening eye diseases later in life, such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and cataracts. Speak to your eye doctor about the best ways to minimize your child’s risk.

At what age does myopia (nearsightedness) usually start?

Myopia can begin as early as 6 and will usually progress until roughly age 20. The longer it progresses, and the higher the prescription, the greater your child’s risk of sight-threatening eye conditions later in life.

When should my child start myopia management?

For optimal results, myopia management should be started as soon as possible. That said, myopia control can help children and teens of all ages.

The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, exam is thorough yet quick! The only negative I would have ... is frame selection is smaller. I like my simple black frames and there was only a couple to choose from, everything else was colors or metals. But still a great place!

Been coming here for years for myself and my children. I have even referred my brother to this locat... ion! As a mother of three and a wife to someone that is in the military it can be EXTREMELY difficult to schedule appointments for myself. The last time I came my husband was gone for training and I had to bring my kids with me. They were so nice and understanding. I have a non verbal child and during the exam she was being a little fussy towards the end. I apologized to Dr. Piranio who reassured me that it's okay he has littles himself. Greatly appreciate him!

I am so fortunate to have found HPVC for my vision care and recommend HPVC 100%. I've been coming t... o this clinic since before they moved to this location. I feel cared for by all of the friendly, supportive, and professional staff. The front desk staff are very efficient, welcoming, and cheerful. Dr Durham's assistant, Barb, is calm, patient and All of the Above! Her experience makes me feel confident and relaxed. I can't say enough about my excellent vision care from Dr Durham. I feel trust and genuine care and concern during my appts with her.
