Myopia Control in Marietta and Kennesaw, GA

Managing Myopia (Nearsightedness) in Children

We’re dedicated to each of our patients, and it’s especially important to look after our youngest ones’ vision and long-term eye health as their eyes develop. One of the most common issues they face is myopia, or nearsightedness — which may be more of a concern than you realize. That’s why our doctors offer specialized myopia control plans!

What Is Myopia?

Myopia is a very common vision condition where a person has difficulty seeing things far away. It occurs because the cornea, the clear front of your eye that focuses light, is longer that it should be and distorts distant objects. Nearsightedness develops at a young age, and while glasses can correct vision, the eye’s irregular shape will continue to progress: this means more severe vision prescriptions, and even a greater risk of eye disease, over time.

Myopia Management Can Help!

While myopia can’t be undone, slowing its progression can do wonders for your child’s long-term vision — and how they interact with the world today. That’s the power of myopia management plans: they correct vision now and slow myopia’s progression for lower vision prescriptions for the rest of their life. Nearsightedness can get in the way of your child’s school, sports, and social life, but with a child-friendly myopia control plan, it never has to!

Our Myopia Treatment Options

There are several different ways to control myopia — including specialty lenses and eye drops — and we’re here to help you discover the best choice for your child! We’ll make sure that whichever of our solutions we choose, from overnight lenses to once-a-day eyedrops, they make the most sense for your child’s vision, maturity, and schedule.

Ortho-K and Corneal
Refractive Therapy (CRT) Lenses

Ortho-K and Corneal
Refractive Therapy (CRT) Lenses

Ortho-k has your child wear rigid gas-permeable (RGP) contact lenses while they sleep. These safe, breathable lenses painlessly reshape the cornea overnight for clearer vision the next day. Paragon CRT® is one of the most advanced forms of ortho-k and uses a larger lens that gently presses on the center of the cornea, creating a lens power effect. Our doctors will decide whether Paragon® or another ortho-k lens is best for your child during a consultation!

Atropine Eye Drops

Atropine Eye Drops

These specialty eye drops containing atropine sulfate, and work by dilating your child’s pupils and relaxing their focusing muscles. This helps ease eye strain and fatigue on their eyes, which are both caused by nearsightedness and lead to its progression. Atropine drops can be an excellent option on their own, but often work best supplementing other solutions.
