Here at Eye Tech Optometric Center, we are proud to offer myopia management treatments for our patients.
With the increase of screen time especially among young patients, the chances of developing high myopia increases as well. High myopia can potentially cause vision problems such as but not limited to retinal issues, macular degeneration, and/or glaucoma. Managing developing myopia at a young age is crucial for preventing vision problems. Patients receiving myopia management treatments at our office are monitored using the latest state-of-the-art machines.
We have a topography machine that is able to monitor the axial length of the eyes over time, allowing our patients to see for themselves the health benefits of myopia management.
At our office, we offer various methods to manage myopia:
• Orthokeratology, or “Ortho-K”
• Mi-Sight Contact Lenses
• Atropine Eye Drops
Ortho-k involves temporarily reshaping the cornea through the use of specialized contact lenses, which are designed to be worn while sleeping. Although these lenses are not very common and most people still prefer laser surgery, this reshaping method is gaining more popularity as the procedure continues to be improved.
