Why Does My Child's Nearsightedness Need to Be Managed?
Myopia significantly increases the risk of developing sight-threatening eye diseases later in life, such as cataracts, glaucoma, retinal detachment and macular degeneration. The higher your child’s myopia, the greater the risk.
Although eyeglasses and standard contact lenses can correct a person’s vision, they do not treat the underlying cause of myopia or slow its progression. This is where myopia management comes in.
If you’re concerned about your child’s long-term eye health and vision, contact Cornea and Contact Institute of Minnesota today. We can help.

What Parents Are Saying About Myopia Management
Dr. Zachary, the best eye doctor I have ever met. The service provided was for Ortho-K lenses for my 10 year old. The service provided was above and beyond. Received a quality care. He doesn't rush the appointment and was thorough with the exam and answering all our questions with so much patience. Very knowledgeable and helpful. He and his top notch team take great care. We were satisfied with our visit. Highly recommend!!
