Orthokeratology and Myopia Management
What Is Myopia Control?
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
