Myopia comes with some very inconvenient side effects. Thick glasses get in the way of many activities such as sport, fitness, water activities, working, learning, playing and even just being able to wear regular sunglasses.
Kids have an even harder time dealing with self-image concerns, eye contact or social interaction. Studies have shown that myopia can even make kids feel inferior and self-conscious. It doesn't have to be this way.
Ortho-K is an exciting treatment for myopia, although it is not brand new.
Imagine being able to live free from glasses or contacts, without the risk and cost of laser eye surgery. Ortho-k treatment is painless and non-invasive. You simply wear custom made vision retainer while you sleep. You wake up with clear vision and enjoy the freedom to live without glasses!
Added bonus: Ortho-k protects childrens eyes from 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 floats on a liquid film over your eye while you sleep. The lens gently molds and reshapes the eye surface, giving you sharp vision.
If you or your child would like to be able to live without glasses, please book a free consultation with us to determine if you are a candidate for Ortho-k.
We will assess your vision and answer any questions you have.
