This popular alternative to glasses, daytime contact lenses
turns out to have a hidden beneficial side effect of reducing myopia progression by roughly half. In orthokeratology we use specially designed corneal molds to gently reshape the eye overnight in a process that is FDA approved for all ages
. This is a great alternative for the child that does not wish to wear a correction during the day and is a safe and effective means of vision correction. Like atropine therapy, ortho-k is not specifically FDA approved for myopia control, but has long been an approved and safe method of vision correction since 2002. Click here
