Corneal Molding or Ortho-K

Myopia, better known as nearsightedness, affects about 42% of American’s according to the National Eye Institute. It is predicted that by 2050 over 50% of American’s will be impacted by Myopia. So, what exactly is myopia and what can be done for it? Myopia occurs due to light rays bending before the retina. This is why people with myopia can see things up close but not far away, hence the term nearsightedness.

The most common treatments for myopia have been eyeglasses, contact lenses, and refractive surgery, however, these treatments don’t help fix the fact that the eyeball itself has elongated. This in turn puts myopic patients at a greater risk for eye health issues such as retinal detachment and degeneration.

Luckily, researchers have found some viable treatment options to help significantly reduce the amount of myopia an individual can have. These options include ortho-keratology, multifocal contact lenses, bifocals, and pharmaceutical options.
