Ways to Manage Myopia in Children

Why is myopia management vital? It's about ensuring that your child's vision remains vibrant and unburdened by nearsightedness as they develop and lessening the risk of eye diseases later in life. Controlling myopia also improves their daily quality of life and contributes to academic success.

Vision Correction with Orthokeratology

Orthokeratology, or ortho-k, represents a modern and innovative myopia management treatment. This non-surgical approach involves custom-designed, gas-permeable contact lenses that temporarily reshape the cornea. These specialized lenses work their magic overnight, gently correcting your child's vision, and are removed in the morning for clear vision during the day.

The various benefits of ortho-k make it an appealing choice for many parents.

  • Daytime Freedom from Glasses or Contacts

    Ortho-k affords your child the freedom to see clearly throughout the day without needing eyeglasses or contact lenses.

  • Slows Myopia Progression

    Research has shown that ortho-k can help curb the development of nearsightedness, potentially reducing the risk of more severe vision problems in the future.

  • Convenient and Safe

    Ortho-k lenses are a safe and versatile option for managing myopia in children of various ages. They are easy to use and maintain, providing parents peace of mind.

  • Improved Self Confidence

    Ortho-k lenses can significantly boost your child's self-confidence with clear vision without visible vision correction.

Dr. Walls is an amazing eye doctor who specializes in fitting damaged eyes like mine with Scleral co... ntact lenses. These specialists are very hard to find and Dr. Walls is amazing. Theresa, along with the rest of the staff are wonderful to deal with.

It was at the point to where nothing worked. I was making plans on a corneal transplant until Dr. Goosey referred me to Dr. Arnold he said there's a lens called the EyePrintPRO I want see if Dr. Arnold can fit you. I made the appointment and they made a mode of my eye it took several visit and I thought this is never going to work. I received my lens last Saturday it's a true miracle!!! I'm over the moon happy I was reading the eye chart 20/80 before my EyePrintPRO now I can read 20/25!
