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 Eagan Eye Clinic, 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.
Glasses and Contact Lenses for Clear Vision

Our team at Eagan Eye Clinic offers a wide range of fashionable eyeglasses and comfortable contact lenses to cater to your child's specific needs. We understand that comfort and style are equally important when it comes to eyewear, and our experts are here to ensure your child receives the best options to fit their unique lifestyle and preferences.

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.
