Myopia Care in Colorado
Updated November 15, 2022
At Treehouse Eyes, we will first evaluate your child’s risk factors through careful assessments. These processes enable our doctors to derive a non-invasive myopia treatment that can be started on your child immediately so they can achieve the best possible results. The types of treatments that we provide at Treehouse Eyes include customized contact lenses and prescription eye drops which are suitable for different age groups.
Colorado has a diverse landscape, comprised of river canyons, an arid desert, and the snow-covered Rocky Mountains. As of 2020, Colorado has a population of 5,773,714, of which 1.26 million are under the age of 18. The state ranks 20th in the nation for overall child well-being. In recent years, childhood myopia has been on the rise and the stats are similarly seeing a spike in Colorado.
Overnight Contact Lenses in Colorado
Our overnight contact lenses are designed to be worn only during the night. The wearer needs to take them out first thing in the morning and put the lenses away in safe storage. These overnight contact lenses are called KIDS (Keratometric Induced Dioptric Steepening) lenses and they are customized according to the individual needs of each child. The contact lenses work by gently and comfortably reshaping the front surface of the eye when worn and the effects will last an entire day even when the child is not wearing any contact lenses. This also reduces the risks of the child losing or damaging the lenses when they are out and about during the day.
Daytime Soft Contact Lenses in Colorado
For older children who are used to wearing lenses, our daytime soft contact lenses are suitable for myopia treatment. These contact lenses are customized as well and are to be worn during the day when the child is playing and going about their day. Our daytime soft contact lenses come with a special optical design that slows down the progression of myopia and provides clear vision when worn. The child does not need to put on their regular glasses which can cause discomfort with prolonged wear, especially during sports and other physical activity.
