Myopia Control

Myopia Control IN MELBOURNE

If your distance vision has become blurry or you struggle to see clearly when you look up from a computer screen or a book, you may be short-sighted.

Myopia (also known as short-sightedness or near-sightedness) is a common condition that causes blurry distance vision. A combination of several factors may lead to myopia, including limited exposure to natural light, close-up work, and excessive screen time, as well as, genetic factors.

Myopia control focuses on slowing the progression of myopia and reducing the risks associated with it.

At Fitzgerald Optometry, we offer a range of treatments in order to provide you with an effective, personalised form of myopia control. Williamstown and Melbourne locals are encouraged to make an appointment at our practice for a thorough examination of their vision. We can diagnose short-sightedness and offer myopia control options for children and adults.

Possible options for managing myopia include:

  • Orthokeratology: Commonly known as Ortho-K, involves wearing a special type of contact lens while you sleep at night. These lenses reshape your cornea, correct your distance vision, and play a role in slowing myopia progression.
  • Atropine eye drops: Research shows that the use of prescription eye drops can slow the progression of myopia.
  • Spectacle lenses: Our team can provide you with multifocal glasses to correct your distance vision and potentially slow the progression of myopia.
  • Soft contact lenses: Like glasses, our team can prescribe daytime contact lenses to improve your vision and reduce myopia progression.

Our optometrists may also make a range of lifestyle recommendations to help reduce your risk of developing short-sightedness.

Contact the team at Fitzgerald Optometry to learn more about your options for myopia control. Based on Douglas Parade in Williamstown, our optometrists are available for appointments six days a week.
