Ortho K lens with characteristic fitting pattern.
Myopia is projected to rise to 50% of the world population by 2050, making it a growing, yet little-understood disease epidemic. Couple of Eyes Vision Care provides scientifically supported methods of myopia control currently available.
Orthokeratology (or Ortho-K):
The doctors personally custom-designed ortho-K lenses for overnight wear to control myopia. Parents should expect to follow a thorough follow-up schedule to maintain good vision and health. Patients must meet specific parameters to qualify for this option.
Contact lenses for myopia control:
Specific contact lenses worn during the day create the type of visual focus required to slow myopia progression. The doctors may find this option best for some patients.
Couple of Eyes actively contributes to myopia control research. We are currently screening patients for participation to the CHAMP study, a nation-wide research study to exam the effect of different doses of atropine. Interested parents can contact our office and get more information at: theCHAMPstudy.com
Myopia can cause increased risk of vision-threatening problems, like retinal detachment and glaucoma.
