It’s a typical first time check-up we see. A child is finding is harder to see the smart board for the past few months, and has to squint to see far away things. The result is a pair of glasses to help the child to see, and a diagnosis of short sightedness, or myopia is made. Sometimes this is expected, if one or both parents are myopic, sometimes this is unexpected, if no one in the family has had this before.
This generation has started using their eyes in a different way and myopia is the result. Mild myopia causes nothing more than the need for glasses and contact lenses. High myopia can result in long-term health problems, including increase risk of macular degeneration and retinal detachment.
What if we can reduce how myopic a child can become? This new breakthrough has come about through years of research and is now available at Murray Opticians. Using daily disposable contact lenses, we fit specially made Mi-Sight lenses to help reduce the progression of myopia, reducing the risk of long term health problems, and reducing the overall lens thickness a child will ultimately need.
We can fit contact lenses to children as young as 7 and we also teach them how to safely insert and remove the lenses as well. For any questions or to book an appointment, please call us on 01419446627.
