Slowing Nearsightedness In Children

High myopia or nearsightedness is a leading cause of blindness, and the rates are growing at epidemic proportions, with an estimated half of the world's population having myopia by 2050. Eye doctors worldwide are warning about the dangers of medium and high myopia, calling myopia control a medical necessity. As a child's myopia progresses yearly, not only does the parent need to get a new prescription, but they also are a higher risk for glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration when they are older. 

Our optometrists provide comprehensive myopia control offering:

  • Ortho k nighttime contact lenses that gently reshape the eye at night leaving them with great vision during the day without needing to wear contacts or glasses.
  • Soft Multifocal Contact Lenses are worn during the day and they slow down progression by defocusing peripheral vision. 
  • Atropine Therapy is the ideal situation for younger children or in conjunction with multifocal lenses.

Comfort & Vision Unlike Any Other

Scleral lenses are a revolution in contact lens design. The custom lens is created in a dome shape, which offers many important advantages. 

  • Wider design, sits on the less sensitive sclera of the eye, improving comfort 
  • Less movement, increasing both comfort and vision 
  • The dome leaves a reservoir for special drops, leaving your eyes moist and comfortable all day long. 
  • The dome provides an alternative corneal surface, drastically improving vision for people with corneal scarring, keratoconus, and high astigmatism. 

We are passionate about Scleral lenses, learn why.
