What is Myopia? It's commonly known as "nearsightedness". It's a growing vision condition that affects your ability to see far distance. Every year, the amount of Myopia should only change in small increments. If the Doctor finds that there's been a significant change in Myopia in one or both eyes, it is recommended to start treatment in order to control the progression - especially at a young age and in children.
High Myopia, if left uncontrolled, will create a higher risk of developing ocular diseases such Macular Degeneration, Glaucoma, Cataracts and Retinal Detachments. These ocular diseases can then leave permanent vision changes.

What Our Clients Say
"My son has being seeing a optometrist every year. His vision has gotten worse over the course of 6 month to a year. It wasn’t until he got examined by Dr. Linh Ngo that she discussed options to slow the progression of his myopia. She recommended Ortho-K and we are so appreciate that she did. Dr. Ngo is very thorough and patient. Her office is next to a clinic for skincare and we took advantage of that too. My son is going thru puberty and has red blistery acne on both sides of his cheeks and forehead . After 2 acne facials…red blistery acne no more. We’re very happy to have found Dr. Ngo and the skin care place."
