Myopia can increase the risk of developing various vision-threatening eye conditions and diseases, including glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration. At the same time, myopia can increase the risk of experiencing retinal detachment and permanent vision loss (4 to 5 times more likely with mild myopia, and 10 times more likely with severe).
In fact, some studies show that more than 50% of retinal detachments (not related to trauma) are connected to myopia.
Parents and caregivers should recognize myopia management as part of their child’s eye health. The objective of our treatment is to slow or even stop myopia’s progression and provide a way to help children maintain their quality of life. For the best results, treatment should start as soon as possible.

Friendly staff and Dr. Finley was honest and informative. I didn’t get the pressure of needing to have glasses and they even welcomed to use my existing frame. Definitely recommend Dr. Finley’s Family Eye care.
Great service! Everything went smoothly. No hard-sell on any products. Used my VCP eye care plan and got good discounts. I am looking forward to getting my new glasses! Thanks so much!
Everyone was super kind and attentive to my needs. Very happy with the customer service and i highly suggest them for your optometry needs.
Dr. Finley’s Family Eyecare is conveniently located on the corner of Pine Street and Monroe Street, across the road from the Pine Street Plaza.
