Orthokeratology (Vision Shaping Treatment) & Myopia Control

Myopia Control

What is Myopia & Why Is It a Concern?

Myopia is on the rise, especially among young people. You may notice that your child needs a stronger prescription every year, or that the majority of their classmates wear glasses. This is because myopia is a progressive disorder and more children are diagnosed each year. It is estimated that almost half of the United States population has myopia, while in China, the figure is reaching 90% of the population.

Some of the risks involved with myopia include cataracts, glaucoma and retinal detachments.

Orthokeratology = Overnight Vision Correction = Corneal Molding = Corneal Refractive Therapy

At Look Optometry, we are very proud to offer orthokeratology (ortho k). Ortho K is a treatment where no laser is needed. Rather, individuals will sleep in custom rigid lenses that can correct myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism. The doctors at Look Optometry can also correct presbyopia; those that are dependent on glasses after the age of 40 truly love this option.

Book with one of our doctors who have travelled the world taking courses in this field and have the latest technologies to help fit their patients with the best materials to provide the best vision.

How Does Ortho K Work?

It works each night while you sleep. You put the lenses on when you go to bed and remove them when you wake up. These special lenses will make your vision clear during the day, without glasses or contact lenses.

Advantages of Ortho K

  • Clear vision all day without glasses or contact lenses
  • Lenses are painless and become more comfortable with use
  • Studies indicate they are safer than regular contact lenses
  • No weakening or thinning of the cornea (as with laser surgery)
  • Fully reversible, thus allowing for breakthrough treatments and prescription changes
  • Easy lens care
  • Management of myopia progression
  • Improved vision vs high prescription glasses

Can Children Use Ortho K?

Yes! Ortho K is highly beneficial for children as it can help with the management of myopia!
