New Ways to Prevent Progression of Nearsightedness

Drs. Hunter and Tomasu are excited to offer a new service to our patients. Recent research has provided us with new techniques to reduce progression of nearsightedness in children who are at risk. We can identify at risk patients during a comprehensive eye health evaluation and review of the following new treatments: Orthokeratology, Multifocal Soft Contact Lenses, and Atropine drop therapy. There are risks and benefits with each treatment which are best to discuss in detail with your doctor. If your child is between 6 and 12 years of age and has exhibited a change in nearsightedness within the past year, he or she may be a candidate. Call us at (913)681-8555 to schedule a consultation.
