Q&A for Myopia Control
The typical age of onset is about 10 years old give or take 2 years. However, it can occur somewhat sooner or later depending on the patient. In fact, my field worldwide has seen the onset shift younger over the past few years as we look at the worldwide data. Myopia tends to stop progressing in a patient's mid 20's.
Not only is myopia a visual concern, with higher degrees of myopia needing more and more correction (thicker/heavier glasses or contact lenses), as the eye elongates as it gets more myopic, the patient is more at risk for structural problems in the eye as well such as Retinal tears/detachments and macular scarring, among others.
As soon as we see an unwanted progression of myopia the relative to its onset, and the patient is ready for the responsibility that comes with wearing contact lenses, we can start managing it.
Orthokeratology or "Ortho-K" is the fitting of specially designed gas permeable contact lenses that you wear overnight. While you are asleep, the lenses gently reshape the front surface of your eye (cornea) so you can see clearly the following day after you remove the lenses when you wake up. Studies have shown that this treatment is one of three methods that are effective in our goal of stagnating the progression of myopia.
If you experience loss of vision, double vision, swelling, infection or any eye emergency, contact us immediately for guidance. We’ll help you with the best treatment to prevent complications and promote long-lasting clear eyesight.
