Ortho-K Lenses for Children
Have you noticed that your child is struggling to see through his or her daytime activities? Maybe his grades are down because he can’t see the board in the classroom, or she may not be scoring in soccer because she can’t see the goal clearly.
In the United States, the prevalence of nearsightedness (myopia) has increased 66% since 1971. If you are concerned about your child’s vision getting worse each year, he or she might be a good candidate for Ortho-K lenses. Paragon CRT lenses are a specially designed FDA approved therapeutic contact lens worn while sleeping, and they are a great alternative to LASIK surgery for children.
This non-surgical procedure uses a contact lens to gently reshape the cornea to alter how light is focused on the retina at the back of one’s eye. It simply requires the child to put the specially fitted contact lenses in at bedtime, and wake up to clearer, sharper vision. Your child will not need glasses or contact lenses during the day, and the lenses will help control his or her eyes from becoming more nearsighted.
Don’t be the reason your child isn’t seeing clearly. Schedule an appointment for 2017 while they are still available!
