treating nearsightedness

Myopia Control

In most cases, nearsightedness is simply a minor inconvenience and poses little or no risk to the health of the eye, but sometimes myopia can be severe enough to be considered a degenerative condition.

Our optometrists can discuss treatment options with you that include both topical medications and specialty contact lens options.

Treatment Options

orthokeratology

Although there is no known cure for myopia some treatments and management strategies can help restore distance vision. Also known as “corneal reshaping lenses”, ortho-k contact lenses are specially designed gas permeable contacts that are worn only at night during sleep. Ortho-k has been shown to slow myopic progression in children by 36% – 56%.

These lenses work to temporarily reverse the effects of Myopia by reshaping the eyeball while you sleep, allowing the wearer to experience clear vision the following day. This pain-free process allows clear, corrected vision without the use of contacts or glasses throughout the day!

If you have questions or concerns about ortho-k, schedule an appointment with us today. We will be able to help you determine your candidacy, costs, benefits, and risks of the process.
