Updated November 15, 2022

Florida

If you have a child with myopia, allow the eye doctors at Treehouse Eyes to address your child’s condition using non-surgical methods that are both safe and comfortable for kids of all ages. We are a group of eye doctors who are committed to treating myopic children with the depth of knowledge needed to produce effective results.

About Florida

Florida is flanked by the Gulf of Mexico on its west and the Bahamas and the Atlantic Ocean on its east. It is the third-most populous state in the country with over 21 million residents. Nearly 20% of the population are children under the age of 18 years old. About 30% to 40% of these children are suffering from myopia.

Overnight Contact Lenses in Florida

We recognize that some young children might not feel comfortable wearing contact lenses during the day while engaging in strenuous activities like sports and exercise. As a result, we provide them with overnight contact lenses, which are worn only at night. These Keratometric Induced Dioptric Steepening (KIDS) contact lenses help reshape the cornea of the eye overnight and the effect will last the whole day. Parents can help their kids put on the lenses before bedtime and take them off when their kids wake up in the morning. The children may wear the lenses without fear of losing them, breaking them, or getting hurt.

Daytime Soft Contact Lenses in Florida

Older kids who are already accustomed to wearing lenses will be most comfortable in our daytime soft contact lenses. They can be trusted to take care of their lenses and remove them as necessary on their own. For those who suffer from myopia and need clear vision throughout the day, we recommend trying out our specially designed daytime soft contact lenses. Children who wear glasses may experience inconvenience during physical activities. They are recommended to make the switch to our daytime soft contact lenses for ease of movement.

Choose Treehouse Eyes for Myopia Care for Kids

In addition to correcting myopia, our goal at Treehouse Eyes is to provide children with a better vision. We provide a variety of treatment options that are suitable for children of varying ages. We will assess which of these options are most appropriate for your child by conducting in-depth evaluations and assessments. We specifically adapt each treatment to your child to ensure that they have a sense of security and safety while participating in their typical day-to-day activities.
