PROTECTING YOUR CHILD’S POTENTIAL
Orthokeratology uses specially-designed contact lenses that are worn overnight to manage myopia. When the contact lenses are removed in the morning, children can see clearly without the use of glasses or daytime contacts.
FACTS ABOUT MYOPIA
In the U.S., the prevalence of nearsightedness (myopia) has increased 66% since 1971. It is reported that greater than 80% of urban Asian children suffer from form of nearsightedness (myopia). Myopia usually begins in childhood at school age (six years
and onwards) and can worsen until early adult years.
The causes of myopia are both genetic and environmental. Increased urbanization and close-range activities such as reading and computer work, may increase the incidence of myopia. These factors can cause the eye to elongate, preventing light rays from properly focusing on the back of your child’s retina. These physical changes to the eye cause blurred distance vision symptoms commonly known as nearsightedness.
