Despite the outrageous prices of eyewear across the board at most providers, The team was really awe... some, communicated very well and were open and honest and not at all pushy when it came time to purchase frames and lenses. Very good team!

All of the doctors at EyeCare Specialties are excellent. Dr Patel, in particular is extremely knowl... edgeable and personal. I have an eye disease with corneal transplants and Dr Patel was recommended and now I wouldn't consider another eye doctor. He is so thorough and experienced. It turns out that he worked with the same doctors in Houston who performed my transplants. It's been my pleasure to develop a great relationship with Dr Patel and all the staff at EyeCare Specialties. Their customer service is top notch and they take care to know who you are. I've recommended EyeCare Specialties to family and friends and I know you will be in great hands.

Dr. Manish Patel did such an amazing job with my LASIK that my next eye appointment was 8 years late... r. (Obviously he would have preferred I return earlier.) I can't say enough positive things about Dr. Patel - he's everything one wants in an eye care professional.

I have been going to EyeCare Specialties since I was a kid and the service has always been beyond am... azing. It’s rare to find a clinic with such knowledgeable, friendly, and professional staff. Each Optometrist knows what they are doing from annual visits to healing scratched corneas. The Front staff is also incredibly welcoming and the second you walk in you know you are being taken care of. Highly recommend these folks for all your eye needs!!!

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 Oak Hill 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.
