Ways to Manage Myopia in Children

Why is myopia management vital? It's about ensuring that your child's vision remains vibrant and unburdened by nearsightedness as they develop and lessening the risk of eye diseases later in life. Controlling myopia also improves their daily quality of life and contributes to academic success.

At Highlands Ranch HD Eye Care, your child's visual well-being is one of our top priorities. We're committed to offering a range of effective myopia management treatments tailored to your child's unique needs.

Controlling Myopia with Atropine Eye Drops

Atropine eye drops are an effective treatment option for managing myopia in children. These specialized drops slow down the progression of nearsightedness, serving as a protective shield for your child's precious vision. Our experienced team will guide you through the usage and benefits of these drops as part of our comprehensive myopia management approach.

Vision Correction with Orthokeratology

Orthokeratology, or ortho-k, represents a modern and innovative myopia management treatment. This non-surgical approach involves custom-designed, gas-permeable contact lenses that temporarily reshape the cornea. These specialized lenses work their magic overnight, gently correcting your child's vision, and are removed in the morning for clear vision during the day.

The various benefits of ortho-k make it an appealing choice for many parents.

  • Daytime Freedom from Glasses or Contacts

    Ortho-k affords your child the freedom to see clearly throughout the day without needing eyeglasses or contact lenses.

  • Slows Myopia Progression

    Research has shown that ortho-k can help curb the development of nearsightedness, potentially reducing the risk of more severe vision problems in the future.

  • Convenient and Safe

    Ortho-k lenses are a safe and versatile option for managing myopia in children of various ages. They are easy to use and maintain, providing parents peace of mind.

  • Improved Self Confidence

    Ortho-k lenses can significantly boost your child's self-confidence with clear vision without visible vision correction.

Dr. Quinton and Jules truly made for a wonderful experience at HD Eye Care. They made me feel comfor... table and listened to my concerns regarding my current prescription. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Dr. Quinton is awesome! She is very thorough and explains everything as she is doing the exam. The e... ntire office has great customer service. Always kind and prompt. I have never waited more than a few minutes for my appointment. They have high end equipment which makes the exam that much better. I highly recommend Highlands Ranch HD Eye Care.

We checked out HD eye care because my boyfriend had a really bad experience with his previous eye do... ctor. On the day of his appointment, there was a blizzard. We called and told them we might be late, and they were so pleasant about it. Upon walking in, they were just grateful we got there in one piece. The staff was so friendly, it kind of shocked me because all we have ever had were bad experiences. They also had such an amazing selection of frames. Dr. Quintin was so kind, knowledgeable, and really took the time to get his Rx right. Another thing that we loved was that we only payed for an eye exam; Dr. Quintin let my boyfriend take home a pair of contacts to try before he committed to purchasing a year supply. This meant the world to us being on a fixed income, as his previous eye doctor never got his script right; in the past, he payed for contacts that weren’t even his correct prescription. The fact that she let him take them home to try and make sure they were perfect meant the world to us. I loved Dr. Quintin so much that now I’M switching eye doctors to see her. We look forward to seeing her for years to come.

It's the staff... funny -fun and just delight to interact with.

Everyone there is so nice! I was joking and laughing with them as soon as I walked in. I was given ... excellent service, and best of all, I can see again!! No more eye fatigue, sitting at my desk all day staring at a computer. Super cute glasses, so many to choose from. Hannah was so patient with me as I tried on darn near every pair of glasses until I found the right ones. Highly recommend.

Went to this office for the first time the other day after our previous optometrist closed. The staf... f, technicians, and Dr. Jacobs were all very kind and knowledgeable and I felt very well cared for. While I didn't get glasses from the office, they did seem to have a very big selection. Glad to be going here!
