Indiana-based VisionQuest Eyecare, Central Indiana's leading provider of Myopia Management for Children, has opened a treatment center in its Geist area office.
In partnership with Treehouse Eyes®, the country’s leading Myopia Management service, VisionQuest's service is designed to treat Myopia and significantly reduce the threat of more serious eye diseases in children.
"We are excited to be the only Treehouse Eyes® partner in Indiana, and to also offer the service in Greenwood and now Geist," said Dr. Chris Browning, Doctor of Optometry at VisionQuest and Myopia Management Provider. "We continue to diagnose more cases, and this has become an important part of our practice."
Myopia, often referred to as nearsightedness, is an eye disease in which the eye elongates more than it should, causing light to be focused in front of the retina instead of on the retina’s surface. Childhood Myopia rates are increasing, with 1 in 3 children now affected, Dr. Browning said.
"It's showing up at earlier ages and progressing more rapidly," he added.
VisionQuest offers the latest and most effective Myopia Management treatments to limit the progression. Similar to the Greenwood office, VisionQuest's Geist office includes state-of-the-art equipment to develop a personalized treatment plan. Non-invasive treatments include customized contact lenses and special prescription eye drops.
VisionQuest Eyecare opened its Geist office in June 2020 at 13840 East 96th Street, Fishers, on the northeast corner of Olio Road and East 96th Street. The privately owned eye care practice announced its expansion after several years of serving patients in Greenwood and East Indianapolis.
INVISION, an industry magazine and website, has listed the VisionQuest Geist office as one of America’s Finest Optical Retailers. The office was selected for its design, patient experience and operations.
