Myopia Treatment in St. John’s, FL

What is Myopia?

Myopia is a common vision error that results from the eye being too long. Commonly known as nearsightedness, myopia causes distant objects to look blurry, which can negatively impact your day-to-day activities.

As myopia usually shows up during childhood and adolescence, early detection and treatment is key to preventing ever-increasing prescriptions or complications down the line. Thanks to our knowledgeable doctors and state-of-the-art equipment, we can help manage myopia in people of all ages.

We Can Limit Myopia’s Progression

Our caring doctors don’t want myopia to affect your child’s eye health or limit their performance in the classroom. Combining specialized expertise with modern technology, the myopia team at SJEA can successfully slow or halt myopia progression and correct vision, resulting in sharp eyesight that lasts.

Our Myopia Management Methods

To correct vision and control nearsightedness at the same time, our myopia specialists use the latest methods to provide every patient with personalized solutions. Our attentive doctors assess your eye health, discuss your vision and lifestyle, and determine the best myopia management method for you.

Overnight Contact Lenses

Overnight Contact Lenses

To slow myopia progression as you sleep, we provide custom-fit ortho-k lenses that gently reshape the eye’s surface overnight: this prevents the eye from getting longer, and temporarily corrects vision by the morning. Ortho-k lenses are a worry-free option that give your children sharp vision for school, sports, and other activities without needing to wear standard glasses or contacts during the day.

Daytime Soft Contact Lenses

Daytime Soft Contact Lenses

For comfortable daytime vision correction, our myopia doctors offer various types of soft contact lenses, including MiSight, Bausch + Lomb, and NaturalVue® multifocals. These specialized soft contact lenses allow you to see clearly at any distance and effectively reduce eye strain, one of the main accelerants of myopia development.

High-Quality Myopia Care at SJEA

Prescription Eye Drops

When applied nightly, low-dose atropine drops relax your eyes and decrease eye strain to hinder myopia. Since atropine drops don’t correct vision, they’re most effective when combined with daytime glasses or contacts, whether those are standard eyewear or one of the specialized options above.

Testimonials

Darlene F.

“I had a wonderful experience at SJEA from the moment I walked through the door. I had accidentally noted my appointment on the wrong day, I didn’t realize until the associate went to check me in and notified me I was not on the schedule. I had taken the afternoon off of work to attend the appointment and was frustrated with myself as I would have to completely reschedule due to a conflict I had with the appointment I had scheduled for the next day. The associate was sympathetic and immediately checked to see if there was a potential opening in the schedule. To my delight, there was! My appointment was thorough, everyone was kind and professional and findings were clearly explained. Great selection of frames, spot on with style selection during the first presentation and great feedback. Overall exceptional experience.”

Jillian T.

“The staff is always friendly and I have never had to wait longer than 5 minutes to be seen. They listen and understand your problems and help find solutions. Dr. Phillips explained everything to me in layman’s terms so I could understand his thought process. They took the time to explain my benefits and let me know the cost each step of the way so I wasn’t shocked at the end with an unexpected bill. Additionally, the staff helped me pick out the best glasses for me and were so patient through my indecisiveness. They offer a two year scratch warranty on glasses purchased from them – which is amazing! Highly recommend this office!”
