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 Oakdale 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.

This place has superb customer service!! We don’t live in the area and we’re on vacation here. ... My wife forgot her contacts back home. Oakdale Optical Center gave her a free set of trial lenses just to help us out after we had our eye doctor back home send in her prescription. Outstanding service! Thank you!

Excellent experience at this clinic. Dr. Thiem is a true expert and so are everyone on the staff. My... only advice… expand the eyeglass frame selection more. But even that was good. Excellence all around at this clinic.

Dr. Lauermann is all around aweosme!!! I was absolutely thrilled with the newest piece of technology... and equipment that is available so they did not have to dilate my eyes or my eye exam. It was well worth the $45 I had to pay. That made my yearly eye exam much more tolerable.

First of all, I arrived at my appointment on the wrong day. I was actually two days early, and the n... ice young lady at the front desk was able to work me in to see someone the same day. I saw Dr Taylor Lauermann. Dr Lauermann was great. He was very personable and professional. I appreciated that during the eye exam he checked both eyes, to see whether or not the oil glands were clogged. Next, he explained the physiology of my eyes, as well as gave me informational on the best over the counter products to use to lessen the severity of my dry eye symptoms. Lastly, I would be remiss if I did not mention the optometric assistance that helped me with picking out new glasses. Her personality was electrifying.
