f your kids are grappling with myopia, you understand the struggle – distant objects appear blurry, and dependency on glasses or contact lenses is a constant. What if there was a non-surgical solution to correct their eyesight and reduce reliance on eyewear?
Orthokeratology (Ortho-K) lenses can turn this wish into reality.
What Is Ortho-K?
Ortho-K, or Orthokeratology, involves using custom-fitted gas-permeable contact lenses worn overnight. As your kids sleep, these lenses gently reshape the eye’s surface. Upon waking, they can enjoy clear vision throughout the day without the need for glasses or contacts.
Ortho-K is primarily prescribed to correct refractive errors (like myopia or astigmatism) and slow the progression of myopia in children.
What to Expect
When your kids start Ortho-K, we’ll painlessly measure their corneas’ curvature, creating a topographical map. Existing lenses or custom orders may be used. Clear vision is achieved through temporary lenses until a specific prescription is reached (20/20 being the goal).
Initially, there might be a sense of lens awareness as they fall asleep, but most kids adjust over time.
Benefits of Ortho-K stands out for several reasons:
- Effective control: Halts myopia progression in children.
- Versatile treatment: Addresses hyperopia, presbyopia, and astigmatism.
- Advanced design: Modern technology ensures precision and optimal fit.
- Enhanced eye health: Improved accuracy and new lens materials enhance safety.
- Reduced future problems: Manages myopia, promoting long-term eye health.
