Ortho-K myopia control is a revolutionary non-surgical procedure that eliminates the need for glasses or daytime contact lenses and is a great alternative to LASIK for those who want to avoid surgery. The process works by gently improving your vision while you sleep using specially designed lenses. Lenses are worn overnight and results last for a day or two; however, for best results, we recommend wearing your lenses every night. Before you go to bed, apply your lenses, and remove them in the morning for clear, sharp, and natural vision during your waking hours.
In addition to providing you with clearer vision, Ortho-K myopia control slows the progression of myopia in children. The number of children that are becoming myopic (nearsighted) is increasing exponentially. This increase is associated with children spending more time studying, reading, and using the computer rather than spending time outdoors.
Here at Best Eyecare Associates, we take extensive measures to slow the progression of myopia. At the consultation, we will take scans of your corneas (or the front of your eyes) and you’ll meet with the doctor about whether you are the right candidate for Ortho-K.
To determine if Ortho-K is right for you, please don’t hesitate to call us today for a free consultation at (303) 254-4888.
