What Causes Myopia?

Myopia, commonly known as nearsightedness, is a refractive error that causes distant objects to appear blurry while close-up objects remain clear.

The exact cause of myopia is not fully understood, but several factors contribute to its development. Genetics is a significant factor, as myopia tends to run in families. Environmental factors also play a role, particularly excessive near-work and prolonged screen time. Spending time engaged in activities like reading, using digital devices, or focusing on close-up tasks can contribute to the progression of myopia.


The Brilliant Futures™ Myopia Management Program

As the incidence of myopia continues to rise among children, it is crucial to address its progression and protect their long-term vision health.

At Dunes Eye Consultants, our Myopia Management Program offers a comprehensive solution to slow and even halt the progression of nearsightedness in children.

The cornerstone of our program is the innovative MiSight® 1-day contact lenses, which have received FDA approval for effectively slowing myopia progression in children aged 8 to 12. These daily disposable lenses are convenient, comfortable, and provide excellent vision correction while actively addressing myopia progression.

Our Myopia Management Center is proud to be the exclusive upper Midwest clinic offering The Brilliant Futures™ Myopia Management program. When you choose this groundbreaking program, you can expect the following:

  • An annual supply of MiSight 1-day lenses
  • Regular office visits scheduled throughout the year to monitor your child’s progress
  • Access to online support tools and resources to assist you and your child in understanding and managing myopia
  • A convenient and user-friendly app that provides detailed information about your child’s program

Myopia Control at Dunes Eye Consultants

The Brilliant Futures Myopia Management Program (MiSight® 1-day lenses): CooperVision’s comprehensive, FDA-approved myopia management system includes daily disposable contacts, office visits, A-scan measurements, and clinical support.

Corneal reshaping (orthokeratology): Specialized contact lenses gently reshape the cornea when worn overnight.

Distance-centered multifocal contacts: Like standard soft contacts, these are used by patients with limited amounts of astigmatism.

Atropine: Medicated drops or ointment applied once daily can slow myopia progression, which can be successful with young patients.

Multifocal glasses: Children with eye positioning problems (esophoria) or patients who cannot successfully use a contact lens may respond to this treatment.
