Get Ahead of Myopia Early
Myopia (nearsightedness) is a vision condition that can affect children from a young age, making distant objects appear blurry. We aim to help your children control the progression of myopia early to improve their vision and overall quality of life.
We offer comprehensive eye exams and effective myopia control methods, such as ortho-k and atropine drops, that can help your children enjoy clear, healthy vision.
Don’t let myopia slow your kids down! Visit us today to find the myopia control method that’s right for your family.
Myopia occurs when the eyeball is too long, or the cornea is curved too steeply. As a result, light doesn’t focus correctly on the retina, which can cause distant objects like a whiteboard at school to appear blurry.
Myopia can affect your child’s academic performance and future eye health when left uncorrected. Our team strives to help children excel both inside and outside the classroom.
How Learning & Vision Are Connected
When your kids have trouble with their eyesight, daily tasks at school, like seeing the board, reading from a distance, and participating in sports and other activities, can be more difficult, resulting in stress and confusion. If your child has undiagnosed myopia, they may struggle to keep up with their peers.
Addressing myopia early can help your children excel at school and improve their confidence and quality of life.
Our Myopia Control Solutions
Symptoms of myopia, like blurry vision and eye strain, can affect your child’s quality of life. Our myopia control methods are designed to help slow myopia progression and help your child see clearly.
Orthokeratology, also known as ortho-k, uses rigid gas-permeable contact lenses that are worn overnight during sleep to mold a person’s cornea and help reduce their dependence on glasses and contact lenses throughout the day.
Ortho-k lenses can be an excellent option for helping children manage and slow mild to moderate myopia. These lenses are designed to work by flattening the cornea to reduce the eye’s refractive power. This reduction in refractive power can slow down the progression of myopia, reducing the risk of vision problems and complications later in life.
Ortho-K lenses are custom-made for each individual’s specific eye shape and prescription to help provide a comfortable fit and optimal results. However, like all contact lenses, proper care and cleaning are essential for maintaining eye health and preventing eye infections.
At Precision Eye Care, we offer Paragon CRT lenses to help your children control the progression of myopia and support their vision.
Low-Dose Atropine Eye Drops
Low-dose atropine is a promising treatment method for children with myopia. Studies have shown that a low dose of atropine in eye drop form can help slow the progression of myopia in children to prevent severe nearsightedness.
Low-dose atropine drops can work by suppressing the eye’s growth to slow down the progression of myopia. This treatment is typically prescribed as a daily drop, administered in the evening before bedtime. This timing can help ensure a child’s vision is not affected during the day, allowing them to go about their usual activities without interruption.
The prescribed dosage will depend on your child’s visual needs and our examination.
