Great News… We can now stop the progression of myopia!
Did you know…Nearsightedness or myopia is a common vision problem that makes it hard to see things across the room and far away? Usually it occurs because the eyeball grows too long during childhood.
Myopia is more than just a vision issue; it’s a major health concern. Complications from myopia can cause serious long term eye diseases including cataracts, glaucoma and a detached retina! People with myopia are 2 to 40 times more likely to develop these complications depending on how high the prescription is.
Myopia gradually worsens, causing a need for stronger, thicker, heavier glasses year after year. But glasses and most contact lenses only correct the blurred vision from myopia…they do not slow or keep it from getting worse.
Fortunately, new research shows there is a way to treat it and could slow the progression of myopia while allowing freedom from glasses and daytime contact lenses!
Introducing, Orthokeratology or “Ortho-K” Therapy! Unlike, LASIK, Ortho-K therapy is a non-surgical therapy that reshapes your cornea using custom made rigid contact lenses (called a corneal mold retainer) to give you clear vision throughout the day! These corneal mold retainers are worn overnight and removed when you wake up. It allows you to sleep, wake up and then see!
Let’s stop the progression of myopia!
