At WesternU Health, we understand the importance of having a happy, healthy child. We know that vision changes a child’s world. Eyesight allows a child to see the faces of their loved ones, to learn, to play. The Eye Care Institute at WesternU Health is proud to offer a new service for children age 6-18 years of age, The Myopia Management Clinic.
Vision is a complex process. It involves much more than just seeing the letters on a chart. Vision is involved with 80% of our learning. Without an efficient visual system, we are not able to meet the demands we face in school, our career, sports or life in general.

The WesternU Health Eye Care Institute provides care to a diverse population of patients of all ages. Patients benefit from the latest care and technology as part of a rich, humanistic tradition that emphasizes respect, compassion, and high quality.
