Myopia Management

Dr Thieme is certified to fit the new MiSight contact lenses which have been shown to reduce progression of myopia (nearsightedness) in children. This is a revolutionary lens which has been shown to be a safe and effective way to reduce the amount of myopia in growing youth. After three years, the study concluded the lens effectively slowed myopia progression by an average of 59% and slowed the rate at which the eye lengthens by an average of 52% compared to children in the control group wearing a single-vision 1-day lens.

  • When both parents are myopic, the child's odds of being myopic is 1 in 2. When one parent is myopic the child's odds are 1 in 3. When neither parent is myopic, child's odds are still 1 in 4.
  • If you recall going to the eye doctor as a youth, and your eyes getting worse every year, you can help your child have a better future by the time they reach adulthood.

Dr. Thieme is excited to offer this new technology to his patients.

  • An annual supply of MiSight® 1 day daily disposable lenses
