I highly recommend Clear Vision and Dr. Woodring in Mars, PA. I have been wearing contacts for a lo... ng time, many different brands, and I was disappointed with my distance and reading vision. Dr. Woodring took the time to examine my eyes and recommended a new type of daily multifocal contact that's absolutely wonderful. My vision is sharp again and they're very comfortable to wear, plus I can leave them in longer than ever before. Clear Vision also got me the best price available for these contacts, the staff is wonderful too. I couldn't be more satisfied, thank you!

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 Mars 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.
