Clarify Their Eye Care

Myopia is one of the most common vision conditions in North America. This condition causes objects at a close range to appear clear and objects at a distance to appear blurry. 

The severity of myopia can vary by person. It usually develops in early childhood and can progress until the age of 25. Getting myopia control treatment can help slow the progression of myopia in children as they grow up.

Contact us today to learn about myopia control for your child.

Does My Child Need Myopia Control?

If you notice changes in your child’s vision, you should bring them in as soon as possible. Myopia control could help your child preserve their vision for years to come. 

Some signs and symptoms of vision issues in children include:

  • Squinting
  • Head tilting
  • Covering one eye
  • Rapid blinking
  • Frequently rubbing eyes

Our Treatments

As your child grows up, their vision will likely change. If they have myopia, their vision can worsen as they get older. 

High myopia is a prescription of -6.00 or higher. High myopia can increase a person’s likelihood of retinopathy and other eye conditions that can put their vision at risk. With myopia control, your child can see clearly today while preserving their vision for the rest of their lives.

Multifocal contact lenses have multiple prescriptions in a single lens. These lenses usually include a close range, intermediate range, and far range prescription. Multifocal lenses can be effective for managing myopia by providing clear vision at all distances.

MiyoSmart Spectacle Lenses are an innovative and effective option for myopia control in children. The award-winning D.I.M.S technology uses a central optical zone to correct refractive errors. Based on clinical trials, MiyoSmart lenses curb myopia progression by an average of 60%

Atropine therapy is a treatment that uses eye drops to dilate the pupils (black hole in your eye) and temporarily paralyze the focusing muscle and mechanisms inside the eye. This has been shown to slow the progression of myopia in children. 

By using one drop per eye each day, usually at night, atropine can help the eye fully relax and temporarily stop myopia from further developing.

Next Steps

Myopia control can protect your child’s vision and ocular health well into their adulthood. Book a consultation to see if myopia control is right for your child.
