Treehouse Eyes hosted a grand opening for its Bethesda location, celebrating the first area eye care center focused on treating childhood myopia (nearsightedness). Dr. Andrew Morgenstern, OD FAAO, was joined by State Del. Ariana Kelly and Catherine Provost from Congressman Chris Van Hollen’s office. Provost presented a Congressional Citation recognizing the opening of the country’s first eye center aimed at addressing the growing epidemic of myopia in children. Kelly spoke about the importance of children’s health and Bethesda’s opportunity to be at the forefront of innovative health care models.

Over 180,000 children in the metro D.C. area suffer from nearsightedness, and studies show the rate is increasing as kids spend less time outdoors and more time reading on devices. As their vision deteriorates, the risk of more serious, sight threatening diseases such as glaucoma, retinal detachments and cataracts goes up significantly. Treehouse Eyes uses non-surgical treatments to slow or even stop the progression of nearsightedness in children to give them better vision for life.

Dr. Morgenstern is a Bethesda resident and past president of the Maryland Optometric Association. Treehouse Eyes Bethesda is located in the Camalier Building off of Fernwood Road.
