Comprehensive Care with Total Myopia

Your child’s vision can play a crucial role in their development and success. Nearsightedness, or myopia, can make their vision blurry and affect their long-term eye health. With the Total Myopia program, we’re committed to supporting your child’s eye health for a lifetime.

We create a personalized strategy for your child. The Total Myopia program includes:

  • Customized eye drops, soft multifocal contacts, & overnight contact lenses
  • Scheduled follow-up appointments to help sustain eye health through consistent management
  • Assessments aligned with your child’s individualized treatment plan
  • Thorough training on the proper usage, insertion, & removal of contact lenses
  • An ongoing maintenance regimen for effective myopia control, with a focus on achieving lasting results

Schedule your child’s eye exam with Total Vision Santa Clara, formerly Eyetopia, to get started.

What Is Myopia Control?

Myopia occurs when the eye’s shape or cornea elongates, causing light to focus incorrectly on the retina—the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye. This makes distant objects appear out of focus or blurry.

Usually, myopia begins developing during a child’s early school years and continues to progress until early adulthood. Myopia control aims to slow down or even halt this progression.

Myopia: Affecting How Your Child Learns

At Total Vision Santa Clara, formerly known as Eyetopia, we know that myopia is more than just blurry vision. It affects how your child interacts with the world, impacting everything from their self-esteem to how they perform in school.

Because more than 60% of the brain is involved in processing visual information, healthy vision is crucial for effective learning. Vision problems can significantly impact their learning experience, both inside and outside the classroom.

That’s why we’re offering the Total Myopia program—to provide ongoing, personalized management that helps preserve your child’s vision and overall eye health.

Spotting Signs & Symptoms of Myopia

How can you tell if your child sees the world out of focus? Sometimes, kids have difficulty expressing what they see or may not even realize their vision is different from everyone else. However, there are some common signs and behaviors that can indicate potential vision problems, such as:

  • Frequently squinting, blinking, or rubbing their eyes
  • Getting headaches after distance-based activities
  • Complaining of tired or strained eyes
  • Clumsiness (walking into or inability to catch objects)

How Can We Help Manage Your Child’s Myopia?

While regular glasses and contact lenses can correct your child’s blurred vision, they don’t prevent the eye from growing and the nearsightedness from worsening. That’s where our myopia control program comes in. At Total Vision Santa Clara, formerly known as Eyetopia, we take a proactive approach to your child’s eye health. 

By keeping myopia progression under control, we aim to prevent higher levels of myopia, which increase the risk of serious eye conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma, myopic macular degeneration, and retinal detachment. With corneal topography, we can measure the cornea to track changes in shape over time and create a customized lens with your child’s unique measurements.

Orthokeratology, known as ortho-k, is like a customized contact lens that helps slow down myopia progression and gently reshapes the cornea to improve how light focuses.

Your child wears the ortho-k lens while they sleep and removes it in the morning. The result is clearer vision during the day without wearing glasses or daytime contact lenses. However, your child must wear the ortho-k lenses consistently to maintain the correction.

MiSight soft contact lenses are FDA-approved and clinically proven to help reduce myopia progression. These lenses use a combination of vision correction and treatment zones—shaped like a bull’s eye—to correct blurred vision and slow eye elongation. MiSight lenses can slow down myopia progression by up to 59%.

MiSight 1-day lenses are prescribed for children aged 8–12. As daily disposable lenses, there’s no need for cleaning or storage, making them more convenient for kids to use.

Atropine eye drops have been shown to help effectively slow down myopia progression. Traditionally, atropine eye drops are used to dilate pupils during eye exams. We use low-dose atropine eye drops in myopia control to relax the eye’s focusing mechanism. This can help alleviate the eye strain that can contribute to myopia progression.

NaturalVue Multifocal 1-Day lenses are custom-fitted and approved for children as young as 6. Clinical studies have shown that 98% of children who used NaturalVue experienced decreased myopia progression. In 81% of cases, progression halted entirely, with some even showing signs of reversal.

Their daily disposable soft contact design, coupled with the TripleTear Lubrication System, helps improve comfort for daily wear.

Manage Your Child’s Myopia Early

Taking early action to manage myopia can make a difference. With myopia control, we focus on preventing eye complications and giving your child personalized care. Eyeglasses are always a great option, but by acting now, we can open up more options for your child’s future instead of being limited by higher prescription lenses.
