Myopia Management at Eyesite Vision Center
By opting for myopia management, you can help your child maintain better vision and reduce the risk of developing complications associated with high levels of myopia. Our specialized approach involves techniques, including orthokeratology, to reshape the cornea gently. This non-surgical method corrects myopia and helps slow its progression over time.
Myopia, commonly known as nearsightedness, is a refractive error that causes distant objects to appear blurry. If your child has been diagnosed with myopia, managing and controlling its progression is essential. At Eyesite Vision Center, we offer myopia management services designed to slow down the progression of myopia and reduce its long-term effects.
Orthokeratology: Reshaping the Cornea for Clear Vision
Orthokeratology, or Ortho-K or corneal reshaping therapy, is revolutionary for vision correction without surgery. It involves using custom-designed gas-permeable contact lenses worn overnight to reshape the cornea temporarily. By gently flattening the cornea's curvature, Ortho-K lenses correct myopia and provide clear vision throughout the day without needing glasses or contacts.
The benefits of orthokeratology go beyond vision correction. The treatment is safe, non-invasive, and suitable for kids and teens over the age of 8. Additionally, orthokeratology offers the convenience of lens-free daytime vision, making it ideal for individuals with active lifestyles or those involved in sports.
Studies published in reputable journals, such as the Journal of Optometry and Ophthalmology, have shown the effectiveness of orthokeratology in reducing myopia progression in children. With our expertise and advanced technology, we can tailor an orthokeratology treatment plan to suit your child’s unique needs and provide long-term myopia management.
