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.
