We went to sumner eye care when our primary eye doctor wouldn't accept our secondary insurance. My s... on lost his glasses and we needed a new pair asap! Sumner eye care was quick to order us a new pair and called as soon as they came in. A week later, a staff member reached out to make sure they were fitted properly and that my son was doing well with them. 10 out of 10 recommend. Very thoughtful of them to follow up with us! We'll be choosing sumner eye care going forward!

Everyone at the office was super helpful and extremely kind to my daughter. It was her first visit a... nd they made her feel comfortable and encouraged her to ask questions and explained everything that was happening. They were also super patient when she was picky out her glasses and found her a pair that met her very particular image she had in her head of what her glasses needed to look like.

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 Portland 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.
