Nearsightedness can hinder your child’s development and cause various health issues later in life, making them more susceptible to certain eye diseases. VisionQuest Eyecare can help your child have better vision and healthier eyes for life with our personalized myopia management program and partnership with Treehouse Eyes®. We’ll get to know your child and their eyes on a deeper level so we can determine which solution will provide them with the best results and comfort.
Why Should I Treat My Child’s Myopia?
The myopia epidemic has been steadily worsening, with the number of cases rapidly increasing each year. The condition itself progresses as your child ages, leading to the need for constant prescription updates and a greater risk of eye diseases. The higher the level of myopia, the greater the risk for complications, resulting in more difficulty with academics, athletics, and socializing. While glasses can correct their vision in the short term, they won’t address the problem at the source. Our myopia management program, however, can!
Myopia Management Corrects Vision & Slows Progression
The sooner we can catch your child’s myopia, the sooner we can preserve what’s left of their vision and protect their eyes from avoidable damage. Even though it can’t be cured entirely, our experienced eye doctors will work with you to create a personalized plan to slow its progression, minimize its development, and safeguard your child’s eyes from associated eye diseases down the road.
Our Myopia Management Solutions
Ortho-K lenses are custom-designed for each child and temporarily reshape their cornea. In addition to improving your child’s vision, Ortho-K lenses slow myopia’s progression and can be worn at night as they sleep for the utmost comfort.
Atropine Eye Drops
Low doses of atropine eye drops can significantly slow myopia’s progression and prevent severe nearsightedness in children. Depending on the level of your child’s myopia, these drops may be recommended in addition to other solutions, like glasses.
Myopia glasses are slightly different than traditional vision prescription eyewear. These specialty glasses slow myopia’s progression by focusing light in front of the eye while also giving your child clearer vision.
