Myopia Control Could Save Your Child From a Heavy Prescription

As kids get older, myopia or nearsightedness tends to get worse. Even if your child only needs a little bit of correction today, without intervention, they’ll most likely need a lot of correction by the time they reach adulthood.

Myopia control uses a variety of treatments to mitigate the progression of myopia. Most of these treatments are designed to help relieve eye strain, which may contribute to myopia advancement. While it does not cure myopia, or prevent progression completely, it may slow the process down by as much as 50%.

Visions of Washington is happy to improve your child’s future through myopia control. Request an appointment to find out how myopia control could help your child.

Why Does Myopia Get Worse as Kids Get Older?

Myopia stems from the shape of the eye. When the eyeball is too long or the curvature of the cornea is too steep, it causes light to focus at a point just in front of the retina, rather than directly on the retina.

As your child grows, their eyes grow with them. As their eyes get progressively longer, the light focuses at a point further and further in front of their retina.

Methods of Myopia Control

Ortho-K


Orthokeratology or Ortho-K uses rigid, gas permeable contact lenses to reshape the corneas. Your child inserts the contacts before bedtime and removes them when they wake up in the morning. Overnight, the contact lenses reshape the corneas, correcting the refractive error. Your child’s corneas will hold their new shape throughout the day, allowing them to see clearly at all distances. This treatment is fully reversible, working as long as your child wears the lenses each night while they sleep, and stopping if the lens use is discontinued.




Atropine Drops


Atropine drops temporarily paralyze the eye’s focusing mechanism. This relieves some of the eye strain thought to be associated with myopia progression.




Multifocal Glasses & Contact Lenses


Multifocal lenses offer different corrective powers in different areas of the lens. Unlike traditional lined bifocals, each power in a multifocal progressively blends into one another, allowing children to see clearly for distance, intermediate, and near work without straining their eyes.
