Ways to Manage Myopia in Children

Why is myopia management vital? It's about ensuring that your child's vision remains vibrant and unburdened by nearsightedness as they develop and lessening the risk of eye diseases later in life. Controlling myopia also improves their daily quality of life and contributes to academic success.

At Evanston Eye Wellness, your child's visual well-being is one of our top priorities. We're committed to offering a range of effective myopia management treatments tailored to your child's unique needs.

Vision Correction with Orthokeratology

Orthokeratology, or ortho-k, represents a modern and innovative myopia management treatment. This non-surgical approach involves custom-designed, gas-permeable contact lenses that temporarily reshape the cornea. These specialized lenses work their magic overnight, gently correcting your child's vision, and are removed in the morning for clear vision during the day.

The various benefits of ortho-k make it an appealing choice for many parents.

  • Daytime Freedom from Glasses or Contacts

    Ortho-k affords your child the freedom to see clearly throughout the day without needing eyeglasses or contact lenses.

  • Slows Myopia Progression

    Research has shown that ortho-k can help curb the development of nearsightedness, potentially reducing the risk of more severe vision problems in the future.

  • Convenient and Safe

    Ortho-k lenses are a safe and versatile option for managing myopia in children of various ages. They are easy to use and maintain, providing parents peace of mind.

  • Improved Self Confidence

    Ortho-k lenses can significantly boost your child's self-confidence with clear vision without visible vision correction.

I’m grateful to have a doctor who is helping me with total eye care! This includes issues of dryne... ss, inflammation of the skin around my eyes, fewer rather than more products and help finding safe products.

Dr LaBosse is a great optometrist. She uses a holistic approach, such as diet and vitamins for spec... ific eye issues. The frame selections is great but most, not all, are pricey. Most are unique styles and colors. I’ve purchased three pairs of eye glasses in the past five years and I’ve received many complements on all of them. The office is bright and well appointed. The staff are friendly and very helpful.

The most knowledgeable, skilled, and caring optometrist I've ever had. Dr. LaBrosse has gone over an... d above to care for me and my family over the years. Her outstanding care plus the professional environment of Evanston Eye Wellness make it easy for me to recommend her. Be aware, this is not the place to go for a quick and cheap upgrade for your glasses or contacts; folks have plenty of options for those services. Evanston Eye Wellness is really more like a medical office that provides full-service care for your eyes... and it also happens to have great frames and a fun, fashion-forward appeal.
