It is prevalent that there is an increased number of young myopic (nearsighted) children. Some factors that contribute to this trend include genetic predisposition, decreased time spent outdoors, and increased screen time. Numerous treatments and techniques can be used to help slow down the progression of myopia in patients, specifically children. Here at Uxbridge Optometry, we take the least invasive approach to myopia control by using special lenses. These lenses are easily adapted to and do not compromise the child’s or child’s loved ones lifestyle. The more proactive we can be in controlling myopia, the more effective the treatment can be. In addition to these lenses, it is important to be compliant with the doctor’s follow up schedule and attend regular eye exams.
