Treehouse Eyes, the country’s first and only company dedicated exclusively to myopia management, is one of the first organizations to adopt ACUVUE® Abiliti™ Overnight Therapeutic Lenses for Myopia Management across its network of eye care professionals. In collaboration with select practices in cities across the U.S., Treehouse Eyes is advancing their commitment to myopia management by partnering with Johnson & Johnson Vision to deliver the latest innovation to families and increase myopia education. Treehouse Eyes and Johnson & Johnson Vision will also collaborate to develop an educational program for myopia management in children.
Myopia, sometimes called ‘nearsightedness,’ is a chronic and progressive disease that is rising in children. Less time spent outdoors and more time on near work such as reading and device use has led to higher instances of myopia. This is a global phenomenon that is most acute in developed countries, and current estimates state half the world’s population will be myopic by 2050.
Matt Oerding, CEO of Treehouse Eyes said, “Myopia in children is growing at an accelerated pace, especially over the last two years. Our focus has always been to find the best solutions in helping parents manage myopic conditions in their kids’ eyes, so when Johnson & Johnson Vision launched this product, we recognized it as an opportunity to quickly mobilize our network of providers and offer Abiliti™ Overnight lenses to communities across the country.”
“We want to continue delivering the highest quality myopia care to patients and find opportunities to make myopia management a daily habit for parents and their kids,” said Dr. Kevin Chan, Senior Clinical Director of Treehouse Eyes. “It’s critical that parents continue to prioritize their kids’ eye health, and they can easily do so by being aware and bringing them in for regular eye exams.”
Starting now, families visiting Treehouse Eyes practitioners in select cities and practices will have the option to see if Abiliti Overnight orthokeratology (ortho-k) lenses are the right fit for their vision needs. Abiliti Overnight lenses are specifically designed to match a patient’s eye based on its unique corneal shape, to temporarily reshape the cornea.
