Controlling Myopia

OrthoK is the first practical alternative designed to treat Nearsightedness that actually controls vision loss over time. 

Nearsightedness involves an increase in blurriness of distant objects. The blur can create difficulties in school, work, social life and many other tasks. Glasses and contact lenses are the most common solution, but they are temporary fixes. As vision gets worse over time, you will need stronger and more uncomfortable glasses or contacts. Approximately 25% of adults in the United States experience nearsightedness. 

Tests show that OrthoK corrects nearsightedness and decreases the rate in which nearsightedness progresses throughout most cases. This fantastic result means that fitting a child with OrthoK can prevent nearsightedness in adulthood. Since the lenses mold the tissue of the eye into the proper shape, future distortion can be prevented. 

There are no guarantees in healthcare and your results may vary, but the potential benefits are amazing. 

Because science behind nearsightedness is relatively young, development has only started to determine the truth behind curing this condition. Many other unsupported claims have been used over the years, most of which are incredibly dangerous. 

OrthoK is the only proven practical method for curing Nearsightedness and preventing it in the future. The only other proven method involves a paralysing eye-drop serum, which causes much discomfort and decreases the ability to read. This overnight treatment allows for freedom during the day and relief from Nearsightedness.

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "We use Anderson Optometry for all of our family’s vision needs. Recently, we had to have our youngest fitted for new glasses and he made the experience fun for her and informative for us. We know Dr. Anderson will always take good care of our family’s eye care and that’s why we wouldn’t go to anywhere else."

  • "Dr. Anderson and his staff are so patient and friendly. Dr. Anderson prescribed me glasses and I had the toughest time picking out frames. They didn’t rush, but instead made helpful suggestions and now I have an awesome pair of frames, not to mention the fact that I can see ten times better than before. You guys are the best!"
