Learn About Myopia Prevention | Chicago North Shore Moms


Between activities and travels beginning to slow down, and families looking to soak up the final weeks of summer, there’s an important to-do to make sure to include on this year’s back-to-school prep list: your child’s eye health. Childhood myopia rates are on the rise, with 1 in 3 children now affected in the U.S. This eye disease in which the eyeball grows too long is often exacerbated by too much screen time, resulting in blurry distance vision that makes it hard to see images and objects in the distance. Left untreated, children with myopia may be at a significantly higher risk for numerous serious eye-health complications as they grow.

There’s good news: early intervention is key and it makes a difference! Treehouse Eyes is the first eye care provider dedicated exclusively to treating myopic children, the Treehouse Vision System treatment plan is non-invasive, includes overnight customized lenses, day-time soft lenses and special prescription eye drops – proven to slow or stop the progression of myopia in children. Treehouse is also one of the first organizations to adopt ACUVUE® Abiliti™ Overnight Therapeutic Lenses that are specifically designed to match your child’s eye based on its unique corneal shape, to temporarily reshape the cornea. Once they started treatment, children have reported better focus at school, increased performance in activities and more self-confidence.
