Ortho K may slow vision change..
August 29, 2016
A recent study published in Optometry & Vision Science has found Ortho K may slow the progression of myopia (shortsightedness) in children aged 6 – 16.
The study looked at seven prior studies with 435 participants (218 who had the treatment & 217 who had not). It found a significant difference in sight deterioration between the two groups.
Ortho K (Orthokeratology) involves specially crafted hard contact lenses which are worn at night. They reshape the cornea while you sleep, giving wearers unassisted 20/20 vision (or better) during the day.
Rose Optometrists have offered Ortho K for a number of years, with Optometrist Jagrut Lallu recognised as New Zealand’s leading authority on the treatment.
