Myopia Control

Myopia is a condition in which the eye stretches itself, eventually becoming too long and causing distant objects to appear visually blurry – what we’d traditionally call “nearsightedness.”

The condition is known as a “refractive error,” meaning it occurs when light that enters the eye is unable to focus on the retina at a single point – in this case due to the eye’s unique shape. Without this single-point focus (known as “accommodation”), the eye can develop additional issues such as astigmatism, which blurs vision across all distances.

At our family clinic in The Woodlands and Tomball, TX area, we always strive to detect visual conditions before they become cause for concern. And because myopia can pose real problems over time, Glimpse encourages the parents of our younger patients to practice preventative eye care as much as possible.

To catch myopia and/or other visual anomalies before they progress, our doctors recommend:

Scheduling an initial eye check up at age three and/or before kindergarten or first grade
Setting regular followup appointments (2-4 times a year, depending on patient needs) to stay ahead of any potential eye issues
Informing your eye doctors of any recurring visual symptoms

If your Glimpse doctor uncovers signs of myopia
during an exam, don’t worry!

We have a three-point plan for myopia management to help young
patients get the condition under control:


Our new medmont meridia™ Advanced Topographer machine allows us to take extremely accurate measurements of the front surface of the eyes. These measurements help us gather all the information we need for a preventative RGP (orthokeratology) contact lens fitting.


From here, Glimpse collaborates with lens manufacturers to custom fit a pair of orthokeratology lenses for the patient. These hard contact lenses are then worn at night to help slow down the effects of myopia. (We recommend an immediate followup to ensure the fit is just right.)


Glimpse also offers atropine therapy for myopia. This simple treatment involves eye drops that can help keep myopic progression in check.


In certain situations, your Glimpse doctor may prescribe MiSight® lenses. These kid-friendly, disposal contacts can help “put the brakes” on myopia and work to correct nearsightedness in real time.

The doctor and Staff were awesome!!!! The office was clean, smelled so good and the office staff were very friendly. I am so indecisive and the assistant was very patient with me and even stayed after when they closed. The doctor was so welcoming and really knew his profession. I was referred there by a coworker and I will definitely refer my friends!


 Dr. Pham is so sweet and took her time with me and my daughter! Also the technician who assisted us was very helpful!


The eye doctor was the best I’ve ever had. He was able to tell me what was going on with my eyes before I had a chance to tell him. I’ve never had an eye doctor be as knowledgeable as him. The staff was very professional, nice and helpful.
