Myopia, (or nearsightedness as most of us call it) is becoming more and more common in younger kids. What’s even scarier is that myopia tends to get worse as kids get older, meaning that, even if they can mostly read the whiteboard now, they might need a pretty strong prescription all the time by the time they’re 20.
Opulent Eyes Optometry offers myopia control; a variety of treatments designed to slow myopia progression and keep more of your child’s distance vision intact.
Ortho-K is a treatment that uses a special kind of contact lenses that gently reshape the corneas overnight. In the morning, your child takes out their contacts and goes the rest of the day with clear vision at all distances.
While single-vision lenses allow kids to see distant objects clearly, they may cause eye strain when a child uses them for near tasks, like reading, which may contribute to myopia progression. Our Kodak Unique HD Progressive lenses can offer a graduation of prescriptions within a single lens to eliminate eye strain at near. The gradual change in lens power makes them super easy for kids to adapt to.
Much like progressive eyeglass lenses, multifocal contact lenses offer different prescription levels in different areas of the lens. As a result, kids can see clearly at all distances without eye strain or having to peer over their glasses.
