Outstanding eye doctor! I saw doctor Hayden last summer after my vision had deteriated with blurrine... ss and floaters affecting the quality of my life in reading, working, even driving. After examining me and reviewing the digital photos of my eyes he was able to diagnose my condition and recommended a specialist to do the procedure. I had this procedure done and it worked and have clear vision back in that eye! I can't thank Dr Hayden and his outstanding team enough and highly recommend him for your eye health and vision 👍

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 Mansfield Center 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.
