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.
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.
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.
Yes! Ortho K is highly beneficial for children as it can help with the management of myopia!
Located in the Heart of Surrey, along King George Boulevard, we welcome anyone in the Langley, Delta, Cloverfield and Surrey area to come visit.
