Glasses May Not Be Best for Your Child’s Nearsightedness

Glasses and other types of eyewear may be great for temporarily correcting myopic vision, but they won’t fix the underlying issue that causes myopia, which can lead to complications for your child now and in the future. As your child’s myopia progresses, not only will they need to regularly get new pairs of glasses with increasing vision prescriptions, but it also puts them at greater risk of eye disease. Complications from myopia can hinder your child’s development, too — impacting their academics, athletics, and social development — but Somerset Eye Care’s myopia management program can give your child the eyesight they need to succeed while slowing the progression of their condition!

Ortho-K Overnight Lenses

Ortho-k overnight lenses are contact lenses worn at night, while your child sleeps, that gently and painlessly reshape their corneas, correcting myopia. We’re proud to have multiple ortho-k lens options, including both Euclid and Abilit™ overnight lenses.

Daily Multifocal Lenses

Alternatively, Somerset Eye Care also carries multiple daily multifocal lens options, including MiSight® 1 Day and NaturalVue®, for children who find wearing overnight lenses uncomfortable. These lenses also gently reshape the cornea to better correct the refractive errors that cause myopia in their eyes.

Compounded Atropine Eye Drops

Our myopia eye doctors also frequently prescribe compounded atropine eye drops, often in addition to other myopia treatments. These drops can help slow myopia’s progression and keep your child’s vision crystal clear!
