Myopia Control in Kids

Controlling Myopia with The Help of Professional Ophthalmologists and Optometrists in Bellevue

Did you know that myopia can increase your risk of developing sight-stealing conditions like glaucoma and cataracts if it advances without proper eye care? Here at Overlake EyeCare, our ophthalmologists and optometrists in Bellevue do not want myopia to get out hand and increase your chance of falling victim to these vision-stealing issues. If you have symptoms of myopia, such as headaches, eye strain, or fatigue after performing an activity, schedule an eye exam with our eye doctors. We have pediatric optometry care as well as adult eye care services to help control myopia.

Myopia Treatment That Is Available at Our Office

Myopia is an eye condition that makes it difficult to distinguish objects far away, but the vision is clear when viewing objects nearby. Controlling it before it advances is key to preserving vision. Typical eye care services that our eye doctors recommend for myopia control are eyeglasses, contact lenses, and refractive surgery like LASIK or PRK. For some people, atropine eye drops help. These drops help relax the eyes focusing mechanisms, stabilize the symptoms, and slow the progression of myopia. Orthokeratology is another option that works well for some individuals. These are special lenses that temporarily corrects the refractive error overnight so that there is no need to wear glasses or contacts for the rest of the day.
