Atropine Eyedrops Therapy
The eyes of today's children have no time to relax. Reading, writing, watching television, using the computer, surfing the internet or playing video games. Not surprisingly, about half of our primary school children are shortsighted. But there's good news, childhood myopia control can be controlled through atropine eyedrops therapy.
In the past, eye doctors used atropine eyedrops safely for treating childhood eye conditions such as lazy eye and squints. Recent scientific studies have found that when atropine 1% drops are instilled regularly into the eyes of children, myopia progression can be retarded or stopped.
The highly myopic child is presumed to be genetically predisposed and therefore prone to rapid myopia progression. Therefore, more frequent optometric reviews are recommended here. These visits should be conducted every three to four months instead of half-yearly.
The more frequent visits are necessary to ensure that spectacles prescriptions are kept current. Spectacles and contact lens care advice are given. Time should be spent on good eye care counseling for a holistic management approach. Highly myopic eyes are more prone to developing certain eye disorders. Although these problems usually start from adulthood, the child with high myopia may suffer from an early onset. Regular reviews will enable early detection and treatment.
