Myopia in Children

Myopia in Children from Warm Springs Optometric Group

In the digital age, where screens dominate our daily lives, myopia (nearsightedness) in children has reached alarming levels. As parents and healthcare professionals become increasingly concerned about the long-term impact of this condition on their children's vision, the need for effective myopia management strategies has never been more urgent.

Myopia Control

Various methods for myopia control in children are available, including specific contact lenses, medications, and lifestyle interventions. Our optometrists may discuss myopia control options, such as low-dose atropine eye drops and / or specially designed contact lenses. We can guide the best approach for managing your child's myopia.

Orthokeratology (Ortho-k)

Orthokeratology involves wearing special rigid gas-permeable contact lenses overnight to reshape the cornea. This non-surgical procedure allows clear vision during the day, without any corrective eyewear.

Atropine Eye Drops

Another option for myopia control is atropine eye drops. Atropine works by relaxing specific eye muscles to prevent excessive eyeball elongation associated with myopia progression. Using low-concentration atropine has slowed myopia progression, minimizing potential side effects such as light sensitivity and impaired near vision.
