Shaping Your Child’s Vision
Your children undergo crucial visual developments during their younger years, and myopia (nearsightedness) is something they may have to deal with, but they’re not alone! We are in your corner to help control the progression of myopia and help your children see clearly.
Myopia is a vision condition that makes distant objects appear blurry and often worsens from childhood through adolescence. At Capital City Vision Center, our goal is to help your children slow the progression of myopia through control methods designed to preserve their clear vision.
Our personalized approach to myopia control means putting your children’s unique visual needs first! Contact us to schedule an eye exam and get a head start on managing the progression of myopia today.
Myopia: A Growing Problem
Myopia occurs when the eyeball grows too long, or the cornea becomes too steep. As a result, the light that usually focuses on the retina instead focuses in front of the retina, causing distant objects to appear blurry.
Common signs and symptoms of myopia can include:
- Sitting too close to the TV
- Seeming unaware of distant objects
- Excessive blinking or eye rubbing
- Eye strain
Knowing the early signs of myopia can help you know when it’s time to bring your children in for a comprehensive eye exam. Our team can monitor changes in your child’s vision and stay on top of developing myopia issues.
How Capital City Vision Center Helps
During your child’s comprehensive eye exam, our team can get to the bottom of their visual needs. From there, we can offer different personalized myopia control solutions based on your children’s needs to help control the progression of myopia.
Low-dose atropine eye drops are a promising treatment for controlling the progression of childhood myopia.
Studies have shown that low doses of atropine in the form of eye drops can slow the progression of myopia in children and prevent severe nearsightedness. The dosage we prescribe depends on your child’s vision needs.
The eye drops are usually given at night before bedtime, requiring consistent use to slow myopia progression.
Multifocal Contact Lenses & Glasses
Multifocal contact lenses and glasses can help slow eye growth and, as a result, prevent children’s lens prescriptions from worsening.
Multifocal lenses feature a bifocal and trifocal design with distinct lens powers to correct vision at varying distances and slow myopia progression.
