Myopia (nearsightedness) is increasing in prevalence at an alarming rate.
By the year 2050, HALF OF THE ENTIRE PLANET will be nearsighted. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) now view myopia as an epidemic.
Children who are nearsighted become more nearsighted over time until about age twenty.
People who are nearsighted have a much higher risk of cataract, glaucoma, retinal detachment, and myopic retinopathy.
You don’t have to just watch your child become more nearsighted year after year…there are treatment options to slow the progression of myopia.
A more experienced eye doctor with a high level of expertise in myopia control can design a treatment plan with the best chance of adequately controlling myopia progression.
Dr. Dwight Barnes is the only Fellow of the International Academy of Orthokeratology and Myopia Control in the Triangle, and one of only 124 in the world. As a very nearsighted person himself, he understands the concerns of parents and is dedicated to fighting the myopia epidemic.
