L’Atelier Óptica, specialists in CHILDHOOD MYOPIA CONTROL.

Back to school is already here, and while visual health is important all year round, it’s now more necessary than ever that your children’s vision is fully prepared for the multitude of stimuli they’re going to receive.

 

Many hours of books, notebooks, screens… their studies will require extra visual effort on top of what they already have in their daily lives. That’s why controlling childhood myopia is very important, and at L’Atelier Optica, we want to help you with that.

Myopia is a condition that results in blurred vision of distant objects. You might be surprised to know that myopia is already a public health issue worldwide, and more and more people are suffering from conditions associated with this myopia. Around 30% of the population has it… and it will be 50% of the global population by 2050 suffering.

 

And a very concerning fact: myopia is the leading cause of preventable blindness in children and teenagers, which is why offering you this myopia control service is so important to us. From ages 7 to 17 is a critical time for this control.

 

But can myopia be controlled? Yes, it is. There are specific treatments to delay the onset or progression of myopia in children, and detecting it early is very important.

 

That’s why you should consult a visual health professional (like us) to catch its appearance early. Pay close attention if there are family history factors.

 

There are ophthalmic lenses, contact lenses, or orthokeratology, as well as certain pharmacological measures that assist in this crucial and necessary myopia control.
