Myopia Treatment Options
The prevalence of myopia has significantly increased globally and prevention strategies have been put into place to slow down its progression. Our doctors have been trained to diagnose and manage this condition.
A few of our recommendations and treatment options are:
Increased time outdoors is the safest strategy that has been observed from interventional studies to decrease the development of myopia in school children. Sunlight helps promote healthy eye growth and lowers the changes of consistent significant increases in your child’s prescription. Spending less time on screen. The International Myopia Institute recommends approximately two hours of outdoor activity time.
Pharmacological strategies such as atropine 0.05% eye drop as directed resulted in less eyeball axial length compared to other dosages of this prescription medication. These patients are closely monitored for potential side effects.
Multifocal glasses and soft special contact lenses worn for a period of about two to three years in children between 8-13 years of age have shown to slow down myopic refractive error. But, vision may be blurry throughout the day.
