Myopia, far blur, is fast becoming a worldwide epidemic. I am prescribing more glasses than ever to young kids, including my own. Vision is partly hereditary, and the other part, you can guess. At the end of every exam, besides explaining to parents that their eight year old now needs glasses, I find myself wanting to do more than just check the child's prescription every 6 months.
Also, as a high myopia patient myself, I completely understand the hassle of thick glasses, difficulty finding frames that were stylish and comfortable, and prescription changes every year.
I always had poor eye-hand coordination and depth perception and just didn't excel in any sports. Because of my high prescription, I was unable to get Lasik surgery and have to see a specialist every year to ensure I maintain the subpar vision I have. I also have to monitor my eye health to ensure that retinal detachment, glaucoma, early cataracts, and macular degeneration never appear.
Thus I began a journey into myopia prevention, treatment, and control and the many different techniques to achieve a more stable prescription. Our office will work with your family to slow the progression of your child's myopia. Just as you can eat healthy and exercise to prevent obesity or hypertension, you can take control of your child's vision and health, unlocking a host of benefits in and out of school and all the future possibilities.
This is an option to ortho-k eye retainers. If a child wants to wait to wear ortho-k retainers, or we must begin treatments quickly, with fewer office visits, please inquire about soft lenses.
