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 Canton 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.

I haven’t been to the eye doctor in a long time. But I started having some pain in my one eye. So ... I just stopped there to ask if they could look in it. They took me in that same day! He fixed my eye. Then he squeezed me in the very next day for a follow up. I appreciated it so much. He and the staff were all awesome and so nice. I now have a new eye doctor.

Great eye doctor and staff here. We went here for exams and glasses when we lived in Canton, and hav... e started going back even after moving 45 minutes away. Worth the extra drive time to get the glasses and service that work best for us.

I've been going to see Dr. Raymondi since I was young, and when he moved to a new office at Washingt... on Square Eye Care, I moved with him. Even though I now live in a different state, I still use his practice for my eye care. Dr. Raymondi is thorough and a great optometrist - both for regular eye exams and also emergency eye care (I've required both). His staff is kind, welcoming and accomodating. They ensure their patients receive the utmost service and care. They are willing to go the extra mile. I've been experiencing blurred vision recently, and Dr. Raymondi took the time to go through an exercise over the phone with me using a Google eye chart so he could better assess the urgency of my situation, and then ensured I am able to come get an appointment at a time convenient to my schedule. These days it can be hard to find doctors that you can trust to always provide excellent care. Dr. Raymondi is the optometrist who exemplifies what good eye care should look like and that is the reason I'm now willing to travel several hundred miles to continue to have my vision in his hands.
