Stronger Glasses Every Year?


We now have a solution to the epidemic of myopia in school-aged children. I recently attended the annual meeting of The American Academy of Orthokeratology and Myopia Control. I knew this exciting new treatment was the answer for my own daughter as her prescription advanced. My wife and I are both extremely nearsighted. My wife almost went blind after a retinal detachment at age 39. She has also had cataract surgery now in that eye. So, it definitely hit home for me.

Did you know? A nearsighted prescription above -5.00 is 50x more likely to develop macular degeneration, and 40x more likely to develop a retinal detachment! There are also increased risks for glaucoma and cataracts.

If you have questions, I am happy to see your child for a FREE consultation. More information can be found here.

Here is a great story from a colleague.
