Myopia Control - Orthokeratology (ORTHO-K)
Ortho-K is a process where the patient wears specialized contact lenses while they sleep. These contacts gently reshape the eye temporarily, allowing the patient to go glasses and contact lens free during the day time.
The contact lenses are specially designed based on a digital map of your eye which allows for an exact fit. The contact lenses are highly breathable Gas Permeable contact
lenses which allows for maximum comfort for the wearer during the night.
The contact gently shapes your eye while you sleep, so that you can see
without the aid of glasses or contact lenses the next day.
Our eye Doctors are passionate about Myopia control because of its ability to
promote the self-esteem of kids, reduce the risk of injury from sports,
and reduce the progression of myopia.
One of the big benefits of Myopia Control contacts is that they have been shown
to effectively reduce the progression of myopia or nearsightedness in children. Myopia affects 42% of Americans and is the sixth leading cause of blindness. Children with Myopia are 4 times more likely to have retinal detachments, and are at higher risk for other eye diseases as they age.
