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 Vestal 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.

I wish I was able to give more than 5 stars. Kari at the front desk was extremely helpful and insure... d I left a happy customer. She went over and beyond even calling other establishments so I can get my glasses with the insurance I had. Kari is the definition of a great worker that ensures every patient are being care for.

Good news and bad news… When I arrived for my appointment that was confirmed via phone yesterday t... hey told me they’d texted me Oct 30 (a week ago) to cancel. I checked my txt messages and I did NOT receive a cancellation text. I did however receive a CONFIRMATION text Oct 26. So something is amiss with their communication dept! No problem however as they got me back in next week. The good news…as long as I had a few free minutes I got my glasses adjusted. Candy, the gal that helped me , TOOK HER TIME to get it right! I’d fallen on my face several months ago and got the scratched lenses replaced but the fit was not quite right. Came in one other time to readjust and they still weren’t quite right. Candy spent all of 20+ minutes with me and even replaced the black dots to be sure they were right.THANK YOU CANDY! I truly appreciate your time!! EDIT I once again had the PLEASURE of having Candy attend to my needs. My rather old glasses broke and I didn’t have an appointment for a checkup for about 6 weeks. It was not an easy fix but again Candy took her time and got my glasses going again until I can get new ones in a month or so. THANK YOU AGAIN CANDY! What a valuable employee!

Everything went so smoothly with my appointments—the reception area, office staff, and opticians a... re friendly, kind, and efficient. The ophthalmologist knew exactly what I needed and explained in detail regarding my eyes, my new eyewear, and then fitted me for new contacts with the newest technology. My glasses came in quickly—Thank you to all at Robert’s Eyecare Associates 😀!

Robert Eyecare is a busy place. That’s because they’re the best around at what they do. Normally... it’s a pretty long wait to get an appointment there, but… My wife had a scheduled appointment, and we went to it. I was due for a checkup myself, but hadn’t scheduled it yet. When we checked my wife in, the lady at the desk (Anna, thank you!) checked on my chart and asked if we would like to get me checked up also, as they had a cancellation. Of course, yes. And the checkup was smooth and quick and thorough, as always. Anna did not have to check and see if I wanted to get my checkup done that day, but she did. That’s above and beyond.
