Myopia, often called nearsightedness, is a common vision issue. Children with myopia have no trouble seeing things up close, while distant objects appear blurry. It happens because either the eyeball is too long or the front part of the eye (the cornea) is too curved.

Myopia often starts during childhood and persists into adulthood. Understanding that myopia can lead to serious eye diseases, such as glaucoma, cataracts, and retinal detachment later in life is crucial. This is why seeking professional help and taking preventive measures early on is important. But don't worry; we're here to guide you through this journey.

At Virginia Vision, we will help you see clearly and enjoy the view, no matter how near or far.

Our team customizes each management plan to help slow the progression of myopia in children and adults.

Prescription Eyeglasses

For individuals with myopia, prescription eyeglasses play a significant role in managing the condition. These glasses correct the refractive error, allowing for clear vision and enhancing the quality of life.

Contact Lenses

Depending on your preferences and lifestyle, we recommend soft contact lenses or rigid gas permeable (RGP) lenses as an alternative to glasses.

Orthokeratology (Ortho-K)

Ortho-k lenses are designed to reshape the cornea overnight, providing clear vision during the day without needing glasses or daytime contact lenses.
