Trying to control myopia progression can be very frustrating. It is very clear how myopia develops, but reliable treatments are still being developed.
The good news, the doctors at Varley Optometry have several options for slowing down the progression of myopia. The tools available include glasses, contact lenses, corneal reshaping, environmental changes, and atropine therapy.
Clearly, there is not one solution that applies to every myopia patient at Varley Optometry. Parents, personality, and prescription are all key components in the treatment process.
No matter how parents decide to proceed, the most effective strategy to reduce myopia is prevention. Clinical trials suggest that there are benefits to less time spent on hand-held electronic devices and spending more time outdoors in the daylight.
