Myopia Control in Tennessee

Myopia, also known as “nearsightedness”, is becoming increasingly common, particularly among children. Though there is currently no cure for myopia, it can be treated with prescription eyeglasses and contact lenses. However, recent research shows that it may be possible to control myopia in children and teens and slow its progression.

Myopia Can Lead to More Serious Eye Problems

Children with myopia typically require increasingly stronger prescriptions, and thicker eyeglass lenses, as they become adults. However, myopia can also predispose individuals to serious eye problems such as retinal tears or detachments, due to the associated elongation of the eyeball.

Fortunately, myopia control can help slow the progression of myopia in children, which can help keep their prescription relatively low, reducing their chances of developing myopia related complications.

Myopia Control and Treatments

OPMT Vision Centers provide myopia control services, including multifocal eyeglasses or contact lenses, ortho-k contact lenses, and atropine drops.

Ortho-k contact lenses are worn overnight, and gently reshape your child’s corneas as they sleep. When the lenses are removed in the morning your child’s vision is temporarily corrected, eliminating the need to wear contact lenses or eyeglasses during the day.

Atropine drops dilate the pupil and relax the focusing mechanism in the eye, temporarily halting myopia progression.

For more information about myopia control, or to book an eye exam for your child, please contact us today.
