Total Myopia Program
Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is a common refractive error that affects lots of children. Myopia causes distant objects to appear blurry and our team screens for myopia in each child’s eye exam. We work with you and explore myopia control methods that can help your kids enjoy clear, healthy vision.
We are also thrilled to announce the “Total Myopia” program!
The Total Myopia medical professionals and their dedicated team employ modern technology to assess, care for, and develop tailored treatment strategies for every patient. These comprehensive strategies include:
- Customized eye drops, soft multifocal contacts, and overnight lenses
- A systematic approach with scheduled follow-up appointments to help sustain eye health through consistent medical oversight and management
- Assessments aligned with the individualized treatment plan for each patient
- Thorough training on the proper usage, insertion, and removal of contact lenses
- An ongoing maintenance regimen for effective myopia control, with a focus on achieving lasting results

Myopia in Children
At Crum Optometric Group, we can slow myopia in children through several methods.
Available Myopia Control Methods
Atropine Eye Drops
Corneal Reshaping Contact Lenses
Children as young as 6 have seen vision improvements with corneal reshaping contact lenses for controlling their myopia. Rigid contact lenses are worn overnight to help guide the cornea into the ideal shape. Light focuses on the child’s retina correctly, offering clear vision during the day without glasses.
Peripheral Defocus Contact Lenses
These multifocal contact lenses offer different rings of peripheral defocus. The rings outside of the center blur peripheral vision, and the center part of the lens provides clear distance vision.
Help Is Waiting
Myopia is a lifelong condition, but experts are working tirelessly to slow its progression in children. Currently, the goal of treatment is to prevent the condition from worsening.
Please book an appointment to discuss your child’s vision. Let’s find the solution and work together to keep their eyes healthy and strong.
