It typically develops in childhood and if untreated, worsens in adulthood. Eye Specs on Main offers myopia management which has been shown to reduce myopia progression by up to 78 percent. We cater our services to support both adolescents and adults. 

Eye Exam FAQs

Why are eye exams important?

Eye exams help test for common eye diseases and measure visual acuity. Common eye diseases that can be detected during a comprehensive eye exam include cataracts, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration, and lazy eyes. Common refractive errors include nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia. Without regular eye exams, these conditions can result in difficulty seeing.

What is Anti-reflective Coating?

Anti-Reflective coating is a thin coating applied in layers to the lens stops the front and back from reflecting what’s around it. The layers also stop the glare from computer screens and oncoming headlights while driving at night. Another benefit of anti-reflective lenses is that when you’re talking to someone, that person can see your eyes instead of their own reflections.

What is digital eye strain and what options are available to relieve it?

Digital eye strain is the discomfort many people feel after looking at a digital screen after prolonged screen use. According to a survey by the Vision Council, some of the symptoms reported are eye strain, headaches, dry eyes, and blurred vision. The good news is eyewear is available with specialized lenses featuring digital eye-strain reducing capabilities such as Zeiss’s Smart Life lenses. In addition to eyewear solutions, there are simple changes you can make such as reducing overhead lighting to reduce screen glare, positioning yourself at an arm’s length from the screen, and continuously taking breaks from looking at the screen.

Depending on the age and severity of your child’s myopia, your eye doctor may prescribe any of the following management techniques: Eyeglasses, Bifocal Lenses, Multifocal Lenses, Contact Lenses, Multifocal Contact Lenses, Atropine Eye Drops, or Orthokeratology.
