Ways to Manage Myopia in Children

Why is myopia management vital? It's about ensuring that your child's vision remains vibrant and unburdened by nearsightedness as they develop and lessening the risk of eye diseases later in life. Controlling myopia also improves their daily quality of life and contributes to academic success.

Vision Correction with Orthokeratology

Orthokeratology, or ortho-k, represents a modern and innovative myopia management treatment. This non-surgical approach involves custom-designed, gas-permeable contact lenses that temporarily reshape the cornea. These specialized lenses work their magic overnight, gently correcting your child's vision, and are removed in the morning for clear vision during the day.

The various benefits of ortho-k make it an appealing choice for many parents.

  • Daytime Freedom from Glasses or Contacts

    Ortho-k affords your child the freedom to see clearly throughout the day without needing eyeglasses or contact lenses.

  • Slows Myopia Progression

    Research has shown that ortho-k can help curb the development of nearsightedness, potentially reducing the risk of more severe vision problems in the future.

  • Convenient and Safe

    Ortho-k lenses are a safe and versatile option for managing myopia in children of various ages. They are easy to use and maintain, providing parents peace of mind.

  • Improved Self Confidence

    Ortho-k lenses can significantly boost your child's self-confidence with clear vision without visible vision correction.

It was my second visit and it's only improved so much in the last couple years. I remember before th... ey did not have a retail section to even buy frames but that addition really is great and the selection of frames were beautiful too. The staff is like an amazing little family and they were all so sweet and caring. And of course saving the best for last I can't say enough how grateful I am to find optometrists that are this thorough. I saw Dr. Marrotte this time and his dedication to getting the right prescription for me without feeling any sense of rush or usual guilt that comes with taking too much time to come to a result during the eye exams was relieving. The last optometrist I saw told me I was likely to develop a sight condition because they could not get an accurate read on my script. Dr. Marrotte found that not only was I wearing a prescription that was too strong but also recommended bifocals as I sit at computer for work. I felt so happy during my visit that he actually cared about what I was having trouble with, which was focusing, and my old prescription was making that hard. I can't thank you and recommend you all enough!

Always easy to get an appointment and glasses are very good quality.
