Dr. Neal was so great and knowledgeable. I haven't had a fav eye doctor since the 2001 vision center... days BUT Dr. Neal is it for me. The young lady at the desk gave a great first impression with her kindness.

I was late by about 20+ minutes for appointment, not including the 15 minutes early they asked me to... be there, and they just took it in stride, did excellent exam, asked all the right questions, and got me out way faster than I thought they could. I couldn't have asked for any better appointment for my annual diabetic eye exam.

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 Gallatin 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.
