Just like every child around the world, the children in Texas are no strangers to the digital realm. With applications like TikTok getting more popular, it’s no surprise that myopia in children is a condition that’s becoming increasingly more prevalent with each passing year. This was also exacerbated by the pandemic where children had to heavily rely on screens to remain socially connected, as well as for their academic needs.
Overnight Contact Lenses in Texas
Treehouse Eyes’ Overnight Contact Lenses are specially designed to be worn only in the evening as your child goes to bed. As such, our Overnight Contact Lenses should be worn during sleep and taken out in the morning before your child prepares for the day. Specifically called KIDS Lenses, these lenses are custom-made for each child to gently and comfortably reshape the cornea, which is the clear front surface of the eye. It’s incredibly important to ensure that our Overnight Contact Lenses are tailored to each child as everyone’s eye shape is different.
If the lenses do not fit a particular eye shape, the eyes may get infected by a corneal abrasion. As such, at Treehouse Eyes, each child will undergo a consultation to receive his or her very own lenses that are fitted to their unique eye shape. Studies have shown that myopia progression can be slowed dramatically and, in some cases, stopped through this treatment in children.
Daytime Soft Contact Lenses in Texas
As the name suggests, our Daytime Soft Contact Lenses are meant to be worn during the day at school and in various activities. During the evening when they’re about to head to bed, they should take off these contacts. What makes our Daytime Soft Contact Lenses one of a kind is their optical design, which is specially crafted to provide clear vision during the daytime, yet slow down the progression of myopia at the same time.
Before prescribing these contacts, your child would undergo a consultation with one of our licensed Treehouse Eyes doctors. The consultation takes about an hour, during which the doctor would perform several tests, ask questions about your child’s medical history, and discuss various findings before eventually deciding on a suitable treatment plan.
Prescription Eye Drops in Texas
After a comprehensive assessment of your child, our doctors may recommend a prescription eye drop to treat myopia. This drop can be formulated at different concentrations that our doctors determine may best work for your child. As everyone’s eyes are different, our doctors would recommend your child a specific time to apply our Prescription Eye Drops.
Our consultations are personalized for each child and use state-of-the-art equipment to come up with a tailored treatment plan. While there will always be risks involved with any medical treatment, our doctors ensure these risks are minimized by having follow-up sessions and monitoring your child’s treatment progress.
