Myopia (also known as nearsightedness) is growing increasingly common among kids today. And, unfortunately, childhood cases of myopia tend to get progressively more severe as the child gets older. Without treatment, a relatively mild case of myopia in childhood could become quite severe by the time a person turns 21.
Myopia control is a treatment designed to slow down myopia progression. By controlling your child’s myopia, you can help keep it from getting significantly worse, preserving their distance vision and keeping their prescription lighter for adulthood.
See & Be Seen proudly offers myopia control treatments. Book an appointment today to ask about myopia control for your child.
Studies show that the progression of myopia is related to regular eye stress and fatigue. Myopia control treatments are all based around making small changes to the eye’s structure or focusing process to prevent this kind of strain wherever possible.
At See & Be Seen, we use two main methods to do that.
While normal glasses might correct your child’s distance vision, they can actually make it harder for their eyes to focus on what’s right in front of them, causing stress. Multifocal contact lenses feature different corrective powers in different areas of the lens, allowing their eyes to see all distances without having to work so hard when switching focal points.
Ortho-K lenses are a special kind of rigid contact lens that your child wears overnight. As your child sleeps, the lens gently reshapes your child’s cornea, correcting their myopia. In the morning, your child takes the lenses out and the cornea maintains its new shape throughout the day, allowing them to see clearly without the use of glasses.

All the rave reviews about this place are spot on. Absolutely top notch customer service, friendly staff, and welcoming atmosphere. I never thought I’d ever enjoy going to the Optometrist this much.
All the staff were excellent at ensuring everything was explained well and with utmost professionalism and courtesy. Every detail of my entire visit was smooth and efficient.
Tried out See & Be Seen after seeing some great reviews online, and they most definitely lived up to the hype! Easy to get to location in Liberty Village, very cool shop interior, great range of eyewear, and an awesome bunch of staff to boot! Their customer service was top notch from the minute I booked my appointment, right up until walking out the door with some fresh new glasses.
This was my first in-depth eye exam, and Dr. Patel and his team make the process very easy and interesting to help you understand all about the health of your eyes. If you’re considering getting a check-up or in need of new glasses, 100% pick See & Be Seen.
I can’t even begin to express my love and admiration for the team at See & Be Seen Eyecare. Incredible, above and beyond service. Exceptionally friendly and they IMMEDIATELY made me feel like family. Dr. Patel blew me with his friendly and helpful personality and the staff are just so bubbly and accommodating. I feel seriously blessed to have found this team. Thank you!!
The best Optometrist I have ever seen, the entire staff is extremely warm and welcoming. They use high quality lenses, and cary the best fashions for frames. The atmosphere is also warm and welcoming unlike other old fashioned stark white clinics. 100% would recommend and visit again! Plus cool eyeball pictures!

I went to See & Be Seen by chance the first time around. I was thrilled with the level of customer service I received and the welcoming staff. From the wonderful receptionist who immediately made me feel like a friend to Dr. Patel who is very caring to the assistance i received in finding the best glasses possible. I couldn’t imagine having a better experience.
