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 Florissant 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.

Today was my first day going to Crown Vision. From the moment I walked in the door I was greeted, an... d the staff was so friendly and helpful. The receptionist even helped my mom fill out her intake form on the iPad while I did mine. My eye exam was easy and thorough and things were explained to me along the way I had the pleasure of seeing Dr. Osborne. She made me feel comfortable, took her time and at the end of my exam, my contacts allowed me to see 20/20! Doctor Osborne explained everything to me. She is very smart and really cared about the questions I had. Finally, the Woman that helped me pick out my glasses was so sweet and kind. She took time to explain all the cost. Needless to say, I had the best experience from the moment I walked in the door until I left. I would definitely recommend them to my family and friends and anyone looking for glasses or contacts. They had a variety of frames to choose from and even some designer frames. I couldn’t be more pleased and plan on going there in the future.

The office manager is great. My time there was amazing. I’ve been coming to this location for many... years. Just recently found out there’s a new office manager. She was nice & polite. GREAT customer service. She also allowed my daughter who wasn’t being seen color while we waiting for my oldest appointment to be completed. 10/10 I highly RECOMMEND!!!

Dr. Hemphill is very knowledgeable and professional. She really cares about the health of her patie... nts. The team at Crown Vision is very friendly and greets you with a smile. They are always ready and willing to assist rather in person or over the phone. My family and I are very happy to be clients of Crown Vision.
