Millions of Americans Live With Myopia. While There is No Outright Cure, Today We Can Effectively Reduce its Severity & Development.

Of course, there are also the risks that are associated with high levels of myopia later on in life: namely, cataracts and potential retinal problems (including increased risks for a retinal detachment). For children and early-teens, we can slow down myopia’s development and improve vision through a process called “myopia control”. To learn more visit www.myopiacontrolinstitute.com.
