As summer transitions to autumn and the excitement of the new school year takes hold, parents are gearing up for back-to-school preparations. Among the hustle and bustle, a crucial aspect of a child's well-being emerges — vision.

In the process of preparing your children's vision for school, why not schedule an appointment with Derby City Eye Care in Crestwood today. Myopia is on the rise among children, sparking concern among parents. Derby City Eye Care understands the importance of optimal eye health for children and is proud to introduce a remarkable solution for young scholars — MySight contact lenses for kids.

Understanding the Growing Concerns Around Myopia

In an era dominated by screens and reduced outdoor playtime, myopia (or nearsightedness) has become increasingly common among school children. Prolonged screen time, coupled with limited exposure to natural sunlight and outdoor activities, strains the eyes and disrupts the delicate balance necessary for healthy visual development.

To tackle this concern, Derby City Eye Care in Crestwood has developed a myopia treatment program utilizing MiSight contact lenses from Coopervision. This innovative program currently hosts 20 kids between 8 and 12 years old.

What sets this program apart is these young participants' remarkable progress. Each child on the program has experienced virtually no change in their prescriptions since joining, indicating a halt in myopia progression. This positive outcome underscores the efficacy of applying MiSight contact lenses to safeguard children's eye health and promote a healthy vision for the future.

The MySight Advantage: Redefining Myopia Prevention for Children

MiSight contact lenses are a groundbreaking solution designed specifically for young children. Approved by the FDA, these lenses not only correct nearsightedness but also play a crucial role in myopia prevention.

Unlike traditional contact lenses, MiSight lenses are multifocal, offering varying prescriptions within the same lens. This design encourages the eyes to focus on distant objects while simultaneously slowing the progression of myopia.
