Summertime & CRT – How to Make Your Child’s Summer Shine! | Potomac, MD

Child Female Wearing SunglassesSummer is coming up next month, and parents are beginning to plan for their children’s summer. From summer school, camps, sports, to family vacations, parents invest a lot of time and money to keep their children’s summer fun active, enjoyable, and hopefully educational. While a routine eye exam may not be at the forefront of summer planning, Wink Eyecare Boutique in Potomac, MD has committed to sharing with parents about the benefits of myopia control.

Nearsightedness or myopia is currently a widespread epidemic throughout the US. Nearsightedness affects nearly 1 of 4 children, and the constant nearsighted work, such as video games or smartphone usage is negatively influencing our children’s eyesight. Without enjoying the outdoors to train far distance vision, children’s eyesight is rapidly weakening, which will ultimately increase their risk for eye disease in their later years.

Fortunately, Corneal Refractive Therapy or CRT in Potomac, MD has allowed children to enjoy excellent vision all year round. Summer vacation is a wonderful time to give a child the ability to enjoy the outdoors without needing eyeglasses or contact lenses, and, at the same time, slow or stop the progression of nearsightedness.

This summer, schedule a CRT consultation with Dr. Rachel Cohn to discuss your child’s case of myopia (nearsightedness) and learn about the benefits that myopia control & CRT have to offer.
