Eli is a 10-year-old boy. He’s a great big brother to nine-year-old Declan, six-year-old Amelia, and four-year-old Corwin. Here they are:
Eli is also Dr. Lynch’s nephew. The funny and energetic little guy has big dreams to dig up dinosaur bones when he grows up. He wants to be a paleontologist. And to be a paleontologist, he has to have razor sharp vision… as sharp as a velociraptor’s claw. Why? Because the next shovel of dirt or small stroke of a brush can unearth a gigantic, prehistoric discovery.
Eli has a BIG vision...but, he doesn’t have perfect vision. He has myopia. He’s nearsighted. It’s a common condition in children his age, and it typically gets progressively worse well into a person’s late 20’s. But, incredibly, that’s not the case for Eli. Why? Not because he’s getting special treatment from his uncle. In fact, he’s getting the same treatment your child, or any child, will get at BayState Eye Center. Eli’s parents put their trust in “Myopia Expert” - Dr. Lambert.
Dr. Lambert specializes in dramatically slowing the progression of myopia, especially in children… and the benefits last a lifetime.
Like Eli, most children, teens, and young adults with myopia will experience worsening vision at each eye exam. But Eli had zero progression from last year to this year - after experiencing huge jumps in years prior. He’s a success story. Eli loves to read, he loves his Legos, and he enjoys Ripsticking. Wait, what’s Ripsticking? It’s pretty much a skateboard with two wheels, instead of four. But most importantly, the soon-to-be 5th grader won’t have to worry about blurry vision hurting his ability to learn.
Eli’s mother, Val (Dr. Lynch’s sister), gives all the credit to Dr. Lambert. “She pioneered the mission. Using technology to ‘map’ his eyes, she showed us what the contour of Eli’s eyes should look like, and she was very transparent in her detailed explanation of the treatments.” After establishing a plan and prescription, all Eli has to do is wear special contact lenses at night. When he wakes up, he takes them out, and enjoys 20/20 vision for the rest of the day… without glasses and without contacts.
School starts soon. No child should struggle to see in class. So, if you, or someone you know, could benefit from Dr. Lambert’s expertise, let us know. We’re here to help. Cheers to getting the school year started off right… and cheers to Eli living out his BIG vision.
