Slow down your child's myopia (nearsightedness) with Ortho-K.
Imagine putting your lenses on before bedtime, removing them when you wake up, and enjoying great vision during the day, while not wearing daytime contacts, glasses, or surgery!
Traditional glasses and contact lenses have no beneficial effect of slowing myopia progression, but they’re important tools that allow us to see clearly. At Pediatric & Adult Vision Care we offer an alternative by providing clear vision with Orthokeratology (Ortho-K) treatment. Ortho-K consists of wearing overnight eye retainers (contact lenses) that therapeutically reshape the cornea to provide clear vision throughout the day without the need for glasses or contact lenses. This therapeutic reshaping not only allows you to see clearly without daytime glasses and contacts, it also provides a method of myopia control. The procedure does not require medications or surgery and is FDA approved to achieve clear vision!
One special type of Ortho-K lens is the Paragon Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT) Lenses. They were FDA approved in June 2002 as a therapeutic contact lens that gently and safely reshapes the cornea while you sleep. This corrects nearsightedness (myopia) and may help slow down its progression. Ortho-K lenses offer a safe, non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that temporarily corrects nearsightedness.
If you’re tired of the hassles and discomfort of daytime contacts or glasses, or you’re unsure of eye surgery, Corneal Refractive Therapy may be a perfect option to correct your nearsightedness – while you sleep!
Ortho-K / CRT gives you freedom from the discomfort of wearing daytime contacts. A great solution to suffering from dry, itchy, and uncomfortable eyes is simply not wearing contacts during your waking hours! An easy way to escape the hassles and interference of wearing glasses is not having to wear them either.
