The Safest Myopia Care Treatments
A second treatment option uses disposable, soft contact lenses that are usually worn daily and discarded at night.
Orthokeratology is a third treatment option using special contact lenses worn only at night. While you sleep, these lenses gently reshape your cornea, so that you can remove them in the morning and see clearly throughout the day without glasses or regular contact lenses.
Dr. Nichols and her team will help you find the best treatment solution for you or your family members!
There is more than one treatment option available:
- A daily eye drop (low dose Atropine)
- Soft contact lenses worn during the day
- Overnight vision with Orthokeratology Learn More ›
What is Myopia?
And the Importance of Myopia Care
Myopia occurs when the eyeball, instead of growing into a more or less spherical shape, like a ball, grows into a more oblong shape, somewhat like an egg. With normal vision, the light entering the eye through the cornea and lens focuses on the back of the eye, called the retina. With myopia, and the elongated shape of the eye, the light focuses somewhere in front of the retina, so far away images are unclear. The symptoms of myopia include eyestrain, headaches, squinting to try and bring things into focus, and most typically, difficulty seeing objects far away, like words or figures on a classroom chalk board, or words and numbers on highway or road signs.
