Is Your Child Short-Sighted?
Myopia control can help manage your child’s risk of eye disease later in life.
Why Does My Child's Nearsightedness Need to Be Managed?
Myopia significantly increases the risk of developing sight-threatening eye diseases later in life, such as cataracts, glaucoma, retinal detachment and macular degeneration. The higher your child’s myopia, the greater the risk.
Although eyeglasses and standard contact lenses can correct a person’s vision, they do not treat the underlying cause of myopia or slow its progression. This is where myopia management comes in.
If you’re concerned about your child’s long-term eye health and vision, contact Brain Vision Institute today. We can help.

What Parents Are Saying About Myopia Management
Dr. Lorenzana has been our family's eye doctor since 2014. She and her staff have a wonderful 'bed side' manor with all of us especially our younger daughter. Dr. Lorenzana gives excellent advice regarding treatment options available such as natural treatments as apposed to simply planning on upping strength of glasses prescription. When glasses are necessary or desired, she provides prescriptions (she is not a glasses salesman). When vitamins or other therapies are available to prevent or improve vision, she presents them as options. Our whole family appreciate her service.
