Myopia is also known as "near-sightedness" or "short-sightedness" and is a condition of the eye where the eyes have excessive focusing power, therefore causing light to inaccurately focus inside the eye, resulting in blurred vision.

Are all optometrists able to prescribe myopia management products?
There are many different options now for myopia management, however, the majority of optometrists are still prescribing single vision lenses that do not offer any protection.
Dr Carina Trinh (optometrist) is the only accredited practitioner in the Burwood/Strathfield area to prescribe NaturalVue and EDOF 1 Day SEED contact lenses. These offer a higher prescription range possible compared to other daily disposable lenses available for myopia management. She offers the full gamut of treatment options for myopia management.
Eye examinations are bulk-billed on Medicare, HICAPS payments are accepted from health insurance, and prices are tailored to suit your needs.
