OrthoKeratology

What is Myopia? Otherwise known as Nearsightedness, Myopia is a condition which makes distant objects appear blurry.

Orthokeratology (Ortho-K) is the newest advancement in refractive therapy options. Ortho-K allows you to see clearly during the day without glasses or contact lenses. Specially designed therapeutic lenses gently reshape the front surface of your eye while you sleep.

Imagine great vision all day without contacts, glasses or surgery! No more problems from dust, allergies, or dryness making contact lens wear intolerable. Ortho-K has also been shown to slow the progression of nearsightedness in children and teenagers.

Previously, if you were nearsighted and wanted to see clearly during the day, your options were glasses, contacts, or laser surgery. Ortho-K offers a new non-surgical solution. No more worry about broken frames or torn contact lenses. Additionally, while LASIK has been approved only for those over 18 years of age, Ortho-K is ideal for our younger patients who are active in sports and do not like the hassle of glasses or contacts. It is also a great alternative for adults who prefer not to have surgery to correct their nearsightedness.

The Myopia Epidemic
“In a single generation, myopia incidence has increased 66%. Numerous studies confirm what many doctors have seen in their practices: myopia in children is now an epidemic. As parents, we’re concerned about our children’s eyes. Many parents remember being myopic as kids and hoped they wouldn’t pass it on to their children. Research now suggests environmental factors are helping drive this epidemic. Reduced outdoor time and more screen time could be impacting the healthy development of children’s eyes during their crucial early stages of development. Fortunately, there is now help.” – Treehouse Eyes
