Myopia Control

I am now offering a couple of options to control progressive myopia in my office. Myopia (distance blur) can often increase quite quickly in young children, and this increase can cause negative effects on eye health if it goes unchecked. I offer atropine eye drops as one option, and multifocal contact lenses as an additional option. These measures will not stop the progression of myopia, but are very likely to slow it down.

Please inquire at your child’s eye exam if you are interested in pursuing these treatments. Unfortunately the cost is not covered by vision or medical insurance.

Thank you!

Robert Tovey, O.D.
