Orthokeratology and Myopia Management​​

What Is Myopia Control?

Although an outright cure for nearsightedness has not been discovered, your eye doctor can now offer a number of treatments that may be able to slow the progression of myopia. These treatments can induce changes in the structure and focusing of the eye to reduce stress and fatigue associated with the development and progression of nearsightedness.

Why should you be interested in myopia control? Because slowing the progression of myopia may keep your child from developing high levels of nearsightedness that require thick, corrective eyeglasses and have been associated with serious eye problems later in life, such as early cataracts or even a detached retina.

Currently, four types of treatment are showing promise for controlling myopia:

• Atropine eye drops
• Multifocal contact lenses
• Orthokeratology (“ortho-k”)
• Multifocal eyeglasses
