Myopia is a Growing Issue

Research has shown that too many close distance activities (like reading and digital device use) and lack of outdoor play can contribute to the rapid increase in childhood myopia.

While glasses and contact lenses can help compensate for a child’s blurry distance vision, these don’t stop myopia from developing further. As children grow, myopia often develops as they reach school age and, untreated, progresses into the late teens.

If your child needs help managing symptoms of myopia, please contact us today to book your appointment.

The Danger of Myopia

Studies now show there is more to worry about with myopia than just ever-thickening lenses. Evidence has proven that patients with myopia are at risk of developing sight-threatening conditions and diseases.

Patients with mild myopia are 4 to 5 times more at risk for experiencing retinal detachment. For those with moderate to severe myopia, the risk increases 10 times. One study concluded that more than 50% of retinal detachments not related to trauma are associated with myopia. Other myopia risks include glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration.

Myopia Can Be Managed

Along with the normal challenges of blurry vision, myopia means that parents of myopic children need to manage the condition as part of your child’s eye health. Our goal is to slow or even stop myopia’s progression and reduce its impact on your child’s life. The younger your child is when they have treatment, the more effective it can be.

We are excited to launch our children’s myopia management service in partnership with Treehouse Eyes®, an industry-leading myopia management service. The revolutionary system is designed to treat your child’s myopia and significantly reduce the threat of more serious eye diseases, is one of the most important innovations since glasses were first prescribed hundreds of years ago!

Please schedule an appointment today, and one of our doctors will evaluate your child’s vision and make a customized treatment plan to slow or even stop myopia from progressing.

How it Works

Treehouse Eyes doctors use state-of-the-art tools to develop a tailored treatment plan for your child. Our non-invasive solutions can include customized contact lenses and special prescription eye drops, all matched exactly to your child’s needs.

Data from children using our patent-pending Treehouse Vision System® treatment plan shows a 78% decrease in their myopia’s progression vs. no treatment. At your initial consultation, your Treehouse Eyes doctor will determine the treatment that will work best for your child.
