Slow the Progression of Nearsightedness
For many people, myopia develops in childhood and becomes progressively worse as they grow up. Currently, there is no cure for myopia, but there are various management strategies available to slow its progression in children. Treatments like multifocal contact lenses, specialty glasses, and eye drops have all been shown to slow the worsening of myopia.
Our Treatment Options
Atropine eye drops have been shown to reduce the progression of myopia. They temporarily dilate the pupils and relax the eye’s focusing mechanism. By reducing the eye’s ability to change focus, atropine can help reduce focusing fatigue and eye strain, which are commonly thought to influence the progression of myopia.
