No More Glasses! No More Contacts!

Get ready to throw away your glasses!

Ortho-K Overnight Vision Correction has been shown to slow the progression of children’s nearsightedness.

Custom-fitted, gentle vision shaping contact lenses are worn while your child sleeps to temporarily reshape the cornea to improve vision during the day. Your child will be able to see clearly without the need for eyeglasses or contact lenses.

Studies show that the progression of myopia is also slowed with Orthokeratology corneal reshaping therapy.

Slowing the progression of Myopia in Children May Save Their Vision!

Children with medium to high myopia are at greatly increased risk for serious eye diseases that can cause vision loss or even blindness later in life. In fact high myopia is the 3rd most common cause for vision loss (see the study). People with high myopia are 126 times more likely to have myopic maculopathy, 44 times more likely to have retinal detachments, 5.5 times more likely to have cataracts and 3.3 times more likely to have glaucoma.

80% of learning is visual. Give your child the best chances for success!

No More Eyewear! No Surgery!

With Ortho-K your child can enjoy all of the activities they love
without having to worry about eyewear. No more broken or
lost glasses, no more contact lens care and no surgery.
No kidding!

Ortho-K is safe for children and adults. To see if Orthokeratology is right for you, you will need to schedule an Ortho-K evaluation with our Mineola & Middle Village optometrist.
