They stand behind their work. I had an issue with one of my lenses. It took several times for it to ... be corrected and it didn’t cost me anything extra plus. Since I’m a diabetic, Dr. Dorn does a very thorough eye exam which is OK with me

Dr. Sandman is amazing. He goes above and beyond the call of duty and care. He is excellent at expla... ining things and truly cares for his patients. When I had a severe eye issue he followed up multiple times on the weekend to make sure I was doing good. He is a credit to his profession. My interactions with his entire staff of always been excellent as well. I wish everyone in the medical professions were as good as Dr. Sandman. I would highly recommend them for so many reasons.

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 Beatrice 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.
