Who is Myopia Management for?


Myopia Management is recommended for any child with myopia. This treatment is effective in slowing the progression of myopia in older children and young adults, when myopia is expected to progress faster.

Myopia Management may also be useful in preventing myopia in children or young adults whose parents are myopic, spend limited time outdoors or engage in excessive near work.

Reviews from Happy Patients

Always Thorough and Complete Exam

My wife and myself have been going to see Dr Riggs of the Family Eyecare Center since we moved into the area almost 22 years ago. I have found everyone in his office to be friendly and professional. Dr Riggs is a caring, thorough, and a highly knowledgeable optometrist. In fact, I do believe that he is more skilled and more highly trained then many of his peers. The exam is always thorough and complete. he takes the time to explain each of the test and what the results may indicate. He gives you options for your treatments and recommendations for your ongoing eye health.
