Controlling Nearsightedness

In this digital age, many of us are heavy users of digital devices in our daily life particularly when attending online classes or working from home, where we tend to use our PC or laptop for longer hours. With this current change of habit, it is not surprising there is a surge in the number of people suffering from myopic (nearsighted) condition or with frequent increase of eye power. 

Nearsightedness is common and can be fixed with the help of glasses or contact lenses, but the increase of myopia exposes one to higher risks of developing other eye diseases such as glaucoma and macular degeneration.

Orthokeratology, also known as Ortho-K, is a non-surgical procedure of reshaping the cornea gently while you sleep, with the help of specially designed therapeutic gas permeable contact lenses. This type of contact lenses can correct myopia (nearsightedness) and astigmatism. It may even help to correct hyperopia (longsightedness) or presbyopia (loss of ability to focus on near objects).

Ortho-K can be defined as the temporary reduction, modification or elimination of refractive errors through the application of specially designed contact lenses.
