Myopia treatment we can provide with regular management
Atropine eye drops 0.01% & 0.05%
Low-dose atropine eye drops such as 0.01% and 0.05% are proven to be an effective treatment to slow down Myopia progression. Your child’s Myopia specialist will be able to assess which dose will be the right treatment for your child’s vision.
When coming for a private Myopia consultation with our Myopia specialist, they will decide which Atropine eye drops are best for your child’s eye health based on how fast your child’s Myopia is progressing.
Professional advice on how to maintain your child’s eye health is very helpful for preventing and slowing down Myopia. Your Myopia specialist will be able to talk with you and your child about lifestyle activities and how adjusting your daily routine with more natural light can also be better changed for the benefit of your child’s eye health.
Myopia check-up & management appointments
After your child has been given a course of our Atropine eye drops, it is very important that they attend a Myopia check-up at least every 6 months.
Your child’s Myopia specialists will need to assess the effectiveness of the treatment and the health of your child’s eye. Because Myopia is a chronic condition, it needs to be monitored carefully to prevent the eye from growing.
Most people think Myopia is a curable eye condition once they have their Atropine eye drops, but in some cases your child’s eyes may start rapidly growing too long (also known as Hyperopia) or the concentration of their treatment may need to change.
A myopia check-up appointment is very important especially after your child has been given a course of treatment because our Myopia specialist will need to check the progress of the treatment to make your child’s quality of life and vision much better.

Ortho-k contact lenses Ortho-k contact lenses gently reshape the cornea of your child’s eyes while they sleep. Astigmatism can also be corrected by using Ortho-K and can slow the progression of myopia.
Your child has gotten used to frequent changes in their glasses prescription. But headaches, eyestrain and squinting is not always the best quality of life, especially when children are growing, adapting and learning new things everyday.
When myopia develops, it can be difficult for children to understand their condition without appropriate guidance and treatment.
A child’s experience of learning, exploring the world and developing shouldn’t be hindered by the experience of glasses. Children with myopia can feel hopeless and frustrated when they believe they have little chance of removing their glasses.
For us, helping children understand that their myopia condition can be slowed down by lifestyle changes and available treatments will give them a chance to embrace their glasses without frequent prescription changes.
If you think your child is ready for Myopia treatment, we can help. With our Atropine eye drops we can slow down the progression of your Myopia and manage your Atropine treatment to check the effectiveness and benefits for your child’s future vision.

When they arrive in this world their eyes will contain the perfect algorithm for eye growth that evolved for millions of generations and has produced emmetropia (crisp clear vision).
But as soon as they arrive in the modern urbanized world this algorithm is corrupted by unnatural environmental inputs which causes the eye to continue to elongate, resulting in Myopia.
Plano 2025 is an organisation whose aim is that no child born after 2025 should become myopic. If we are diagnosing 10-year-olds with myopia in 2035 we have failed.
And it is not a question of finding a “cure” for myopia, it is a question of allowing our future children to live in an environment that is close to nature.
This will allow natural eye development and stop the development of myopia in the first place.
Leave the eye alone and it will be perfect. This concept is not only true for myopia but for many of the crises that the human race is currently facing.
