Orthokeratology for Children
Studies from around the world have indicated that if your child is nearsighted, Orthokeratology can keep their nearsightedness from getting worse. Currently, an ongoing 5-year FDA study is showing data that is providing further evidence and support for this claim with results that are observable, testable and repeatable.
Increasing nearsightedness can put your child at increased risk for retinal detachments and glaucoma.
If your child has a tendency to lose or break their glasses or contact lenses, or if wearing glasses or contact lenses interferes with their daily activities, Orthokeratology may be right for them.
