What is Myopia?
Myopia or as it is commonly known, “shortsighted” or “nearsighted” is a condition that develops and continues to worsen during school years. Not that long ago, this condition was addressed only with corrective lenses. However, there are long term risks associated with Myopia, particularly if it began early and progresses quickly. These risks include serious eye diseases and conditions including glaucoma, macular degeneration, and even retinal detachment.
Ortho K Treatment for Myopia
Treatments such as “ortho-k” ― orthokeratology, also known as GVSS contacts ― is an effective and safe way to simultaneously correct vision problems while slowing down and even halting the progression of myopia during the crucial child and teen years.

ORTHO K FOR ADULTS
Methods Of Myopia Control
Ortho K contact lenses are custom made contacts that are worn while you sleep and gently shape the eye leaving you with great vision without the aid of glasses or contacts. Ortho K is also known as GVSS or Orthokeratology and is considered the best choice for children with Myopia to reduce their risk of eye diseases as they age. Kids are particularly fond of Ortho K because they are able to be glasses/contacts free during the day which improves self esteem, vision, and reduces the risk of eye injuries.
Soft Multifocal Contacts
Soft multifocal contact lenses are becoming more and more sought after as a method of myopia control. Studies show that multi focal contacts are very effective at reducing the progression of myopia (commonly known as nearsighted or shortsighted). Contact lenses provide a great solution for ensuring your child is safe when playing sports, and studies show that children who wear contact lenses have a higher self esteem, and are accepted by their peers more than those that wear glasses. Because contacts are on the eye they provide better periphery vision than glasses.
