Recently, there has been a spike in nearsightedness in children. It is estimated that by the year 2050, over half of the world’s population will be nearsighted. This spike is believed to be caused by increased use of near vision for extended periods of time. Myopia management is important because it’s preferable to have lower numbers in a prescription, thinner glasses, and to avoid frequent changes in glasses prescriptions. Your child is at a higher risk if a parent is also nearsighted, if their prescription is frequently changing, or there are large changes in their prescription each year.
There are 3 different types of treatments used in myopia management in our clinic; ortho k contacts, misight contacts, and low-dose atropine drops.
Research conclusively shows that dark adaptation function is dramatically impaired from the earliest stages of Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD), with increasing deterioration as the disease progresses. The AdaptDx automatically measures the number of minutes it takes for the eye to adapt from bright light to darkness—also known as a Rod Intercept. Rod Intercept time helps doctors to determine how soon you could develop AMD, and when you have AMD it can show how quickly it is progressing
