Myopia, or nearsightedness, is becoming increasingly common, and it's important to address it early to help prevent the progression of the condition. Here's a brief overview of the solutions we offer:

AOK Lenses:
AOK lenses, or orthokeratology lenses, are specialized contact lenses that are worn overnight to reshape the cornea temporarily. They are designed to correct myopia and reduce its progression. These lenses are often used in children to slow down the increase in their prescription.

Atropine Eye Drops:
Atropine eye drops are sometimes used in myopia management. Low-dose atropine eye drops can help slow down the progression of myopia in children. They work by dilating the pupil and relaxing the focusing muscles in the eye, which reduces the eye's ability to elongate and worsen myopia.

Eyeglass Lenses:
Specialized eyeglass lenses, such as multifocal or myopia control lenses, can be prescribed to help manage myopia in children. These lenses may have various designs, including a central correction for distance vision and a surrounding area for near vision. This can help reduce the strain on the eyes and slow down myopia progression.

Myopia management is essential because high levels of myopia can increase the risk of eye-related complications in the future, such as retinal detachment and glaucoma. By offering these solutions, your office is contributing to the well-being of children's eye health and helping them maintain good vision as they grow.

It's important to work closely with your optometrist to determine the most suitable myopia management approach for each child, as the choice of treatment may vary depending on their specific needs and the progression of their myopia.
