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 Owens Optometrics, 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.

Controlling Myopia with Atropine Eye Drops

Atropine eye drops are an effective treatment option for managing myopia in children. These specialized drops slow down the progression of nearsightedness, serving as a protective shield for your child's precious vision. Our experienced team will guide you through the usage and benefits of these drops as part of our comprehensive myopia management approach.

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 highly recommend Dr. Strybos and the team at Owens Optometrics! The photos they take of the blood... vessels/nerves of the eyes are very fascinating, and Dr. Strybos takes time to review and explain them in detail, as well as compare to previous and discuss changes and risks (the vessels show a lot, such as stress from high blood pressure or indication of high blood sugar, etc.). I have learned a great deal from our conversations and refer my friends and family to him!

The staff were very friendly and helpful. I had my exam at a different place of business. Due to pr... oblems with my glasses/lenses not being correct twice at the other place of business I called their office and was helped by Kara who was so helpful in all aspects of getting me into a pair of glasses that I love.

Dr Strybos is awesome! He doesn’t just check your eyes, he educates each of his patients. I apprec... iate the time and care he spends with each patient. Highly recommended! Would also recommend Jenn Horning to help with picking out glasses, she nails it every time!

My visit with Owens Optometrics this morning was a pleasant experience. Very helpful and shared good... information to help with my first pair of glasses.
- Nov. 08, 2023
Outstanding practice. Excellent experience starting from making the appointment, front desk, doctor ... and optical staff. Everyone ensured a comfortable and complete experience. Dr Strybos was great ensuring we understood all the technical aspects of our exams. He listened carefully to all questions and concerns. We are new to the area and feel like we have found an outstanding optometrist. Will definitely recommend the practice. Addendum. Had an acute bacterial infection in both my eyes. Dr Owens and staff( to include Dr Patrick, intern) were able to get me in today, do a thorough examination and provide the reassurance of medication for the issue. Wonderful practice, with a competent and caring staff!
