If your child is nearsighted (also known as myopia), their schoolwork, sports and other recreational activities can be affected.  Also, children’s nearsightedness tends to progress over time (progressive myopia).

While you might leap at the thought of permanently correcting vision problems, laser surgery isn't always the best eye care option. For instance, if you suffer from thin corneas, untreated cataracts, diabetes, certain autoimmune diseases, or a corneal disease called keratoconus, you should avoid laser eye surgery.

Some of our patients simply don't like the idea of any kind of surgery, or they want a reversible procedure. Orthokeratology may be an ideal choice for these individuals. Dr. Strenger will map the shape of your corneas precisely and then fabricate special contact lenses. Unlike standard contacts, you'll wear these lenses at night. The lenses perform a subtle corneal reshaping as you sleep, meaning that you can take them out the next morning and enjoy perfect or near-perfect vision.

Ortho-K can help you see clearly for one or two days at a time, or possibly even longer. By wearing them regularly at night, you can maintain your clarity of vision for as long as you decide to continue using them. If you decide to use another form of vision correction, simply stop wearing the Ortho-K lenses and your corneas will assume their previous shape once again. Talk to our knowledgeable staff to see whether Ortho-K makes sense for you.http://seeclearassociates.com/ortho-k.html

Testimonial

  • I brought my son in after a few years of watching him struggle in school and lose self confidence. We had tried all different things at school and he was getting extra help in all subjects. My son was referred to see an occupational therapist who noticed that it could be a vision issue. I was recommended to this office and after his consult we began therapy. I can't express how thankful we are for the therapy. Within weeks of starting we saw a difference and I have a son who is now successful in school (made the honor roll) and has gained his self confidence. The difference in his mood and attitude is unbelievable, he has become more pleasant to be around. - LS
