Myopia causes serious problems for kids. Blurred vision, thick glasses that make it hard to be physically active, increased eye disease later in life.
Studies have shown that myopia can even make kids feel inferior and self-conscious about their appearance. It doesn't have to be this way.
Ortho-K is an exciting treatment for myopia, although it is not new.
Kids get to live free from glasses or contacts. Ortho-k treatment is painless and non-invasive. You simply wear special retainer lenses (like retainers for your teeth). They are only worn while sleeping. You wake up with clear vision and enjoy the freedom to live without glasses!
Added bonus: Ortho-k protects your child from eye disease by slowing down the progression of myopia.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Ortho-k lenses work by gently correcting the shape and curvature of your eyes, giving you clear vision.
A gentle hydraulic force is created by a series of grooves, angles and curves in the retainer that is filled with liquid. The lens gently molds and reshapes the eye surface, giving you sharp vision.
If you are concerned about your child's vision and eye health, please book a free consultation with us to determine if your child is a good candidate for Ortho-k.
We will assess your child's vision and answer any questions you have.
