“Support your independent pharmacy! Excellent and friendly customer service – everybody knew me by name by my fourth visit. They take the time to answer my questions. And the prices are as low as any of the big, unfriendly chain pharmacies.” —Jerry J.
“Their prescriptions cost the same and in many cases less than the chain pharmacies but what’s most important to us is how we’re treated. If there’s a question about our prescriptions, Shady Grove Pharmacy calls the doctor and makes sure that they have an answer. I can’t say enough about Shady Grove Pharmacy and I highly recommend them. We’re so very grateful to have found them.” —Christina T.
Atropine drops are a safe and effective way to treat childhood nearsightedness.
In a five-year cynical trial, 0.01% atropine drops, the same medication used to safely treat lazy eye for decades, were shown to slow down the progression of myopia in children up to 50 percent with almost no side effects. These findings offer hope, especially for the parents whose children frequently require costly new prescription glasses due to rapid changes in the eyes throughout childhood. Even more, though corrective lenses can be a short-term solution to nearsightedness, they do not prevent the advancement of severe nearsightedness in later life, which is linked to increased risk of serious eye complications including macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal detachment and premature cataracts. By offering a better way to manage myopia early in life, the hope is that 0.01% atropine drops will not only offer relief to those suffering from myopia currently, but also reduce the number of people who develop these complications with age.
