OrthoK is a specialized treatment for myopia. It is a non-surgical way to correct the vision and prevent myopia progression. Small specialty contact lenses are used at night time to change the shape of the surface of the eye. This change in shape gives clear vision without glasses or contacts during the day, it also affects the peripheral vision to prevent eye elongation and myopia progression.
Multifocal Contact Lenses
Using multifocal contact lenses during the day helps correct the vision and prevents myopia progression. The contacts help prevent over focusing with near work. It also may have affects on the peripheral vision to prevent eye elongation and myopia progression.
Low Dose Atropine Drops
Atropine is an eye drop that causes the eyes to relax and prevents over focusing to prevent myopia progression. In higher concentrations atropine causes the eyes to dilate, but has minimal to no dilation affects in lower concentrations.
Bifocals help relax the eyes and prevent over focusing while doing near work to help prevent myopia progression. Certain eyes will work best in glasses to help keep from the eyes changing every year.
