Myopia Control in Children


Myopia (nearsightedness) is very common becoming moreso among children. Children who spend more time indoors (playing video games, computers and reading) have higher rates of myopia than those that spend more time outdoors.

Doctors are looking at ways to slow the progression of myopia in children. Eyeglasses/contacts will still be needed, but the goal is to prevent myopia from getting worse.

Learn about Low Dose Atropine Eye Drops, Peripheral Defocus Contact Lenses and more steps you and your child can take to help slow the progression of myopia.
