Does your child need stronger glasses year after year, with no end in sight? Are you hoping your child did not inherit your “bad eyes”? Or are you worried about the impact of excessive screen time in children?
You are right to be concerned! We are seeing a dramatic increase in childhood myopia (near-sightedness) in recent years. Currently 30% of the world is near-sighted. This number is expected to jump to 50% by 2050. That change is coming from our youth. The good news is there are now ways to slow the progression of myopia in children.
Currently, there are three primary management options and several more on the horizon.
Myopia Management Options:
Lose dose atropine eye drops
Ortho-K or CRT lenses aka “night lenses”
MiSight daily disposable contact lenses
At See La Vie, we designed a myopia management program to carefully determine the best solution for your individual child. We will walk you through the entire process from environmental modifications to selecting an appropriate myopia control strategy with either contact lenses, eye drops, or both. We take the time to get to know your child and your family to ensure the experience is both positive and successful!
Dr. Kayla is passionate about providing your child with solutions that didn’t exist when she was growing up. Both Dr. Kayla and her husband are very near-sighted. She understands the burden that thick glasses can have on a child’s self-esteem as well as the lifelong risk of eye conditions like retinal detachment, glaucoma, and macular degeneration that go along with excessive myopia.
