Finally, an alternative to stronger glasses for your child.
Parents, are you worried about your child getting stronger and stronger glasses every year? Unfortunately you should be!! It’s now proven that more severe myopia leads to a dramatic increase in the risk of serious eye diseases as people age. Diseases such as macular degeneration, retinal detachment, and glaucoma all can be caused by increased myopia.
There is a current worldwide myopia epidemic. Children today are becoming more and more myopic at rates that we haven’t seen in the past. Genetics, less outdoor activities, and dramatic increase in the use of digital devices are all to blame.
Glasses and soft contact lenses can correct the blurry vision that myopia produces, but the don’t address the progression of myopia. The result of myopia progression is an increase overall length of the eyeball which is what leads to serious eye diseases.
At Glen Burnie Eyecare, Dr. Stuart Spind has perfected a non surgical approach to treating myopia progression and decreasing the risk of eye disease of these patients. Over the last 10 years he has helped kids as young as 7, and seen them stabilize.
