Treatment options can also play a critical role in managing myopia. At Lone Star Vision, we offer a range of treatments, from ortho-k lenses to atropine drops. Atropine drops and eye drops that can be applied before bed to help stall the progression of myopia. Ortho-k lenses are similar.

The cornea will go back to its normal shape overtime so the lenses need to be worn regularly to get the proper effect.
