I’ve treated hundreds of children in my practice over the past decade, developing customizable plans for families to achieve the best vision possible.
I also teach my myopia management framework to ophthalmologists and optometrists at national conferences.
But I wanted to reach more children (and their parents) across the country so that they would also know the benefits of myopia management.
So I created this program to give you the education you need to be an advocate your child.
But, I’m also a mom.
And when I saw that my kids were starting to take after my husband’s nearsighted family, I became even more personally invested and passionate about myopia management. And, not just for myself. I want to educate all parents about their options. So that you can take back control of your child’s vision
All children benefit when their parents are partners in their health care journey and you don’t need to be a health care provider to do so.
Learn how your child can be best served by understanding the modifiable lifestyle risk factors, potential treatment options and research behind it all so you can be your child’s best advocate.

You might be nearsighted yourself and worry that your child will follow in your footsteps - a lifetime of glasses, contacts and poor vision. Or you’re worried because you see your child’s glasses prescription getting thicker and thicker every year and want to take action.
This course is not for you if you prefer a “wait and see” attitude with regards to your child’s vision. This is for people who want to take action to prevent their child’s vision from worsening every year.
As an Ivy League trained physician who is fellowship trained in pediatric ophthalmology, I have seen firsthand the devastating vision and eye health consequences of nearsightedness.
This is why I am adamant about instituting myopia management treatments and strategies with my own 3 children.
I know that many eye doctors are not offering or even discussing myopia management treatments with their patients and that’s doing you a disservice.
I want every parent to feel knowledgeable and comfortable about making the most informed choices for their children, understanding the lifestyle modifications and treatment options available.
