Myopia, or nearsightedness, can be a chronic and progressive problem that can result in long-term ocular health issues. That's why we provide the newest options designed to slow the progression of myopia.
Myopia occurs when the eye grows too long, which can change its ability to focus on distant objects and result in blurry vision. This is becoming more common and has been associated with more near work and less outdoor time, making it crucial to monitor your child's vision health from an early age.
But, you can take proactive steps towards maintaining your child's vision health. There are options that are designed to slow the progression of myopia, preventing the need for ever-increasing prescriptions for glasses or contact lenses.
And, it's not just about maintaining clear vision. Myopia can also increase the risk of permanent vision loss due to the increased likelihood of developing cataracts, glaucoma, retinal detachment, myopic macular degeneration, or other eye conditions. These new treatments can help reduce this risk and keep your child's eyesight safe and healthy.
Our motive is to help you take the necessary steps to keep your child's eyesight in check and ensure their vision remains clear and healthy for years to come. So, call today for an exam and see if your child is a candidate for these new technology options.
