How do you help protect your child from developing worsening short sightedness? Orthokeratology is a Non Surgical, Reversible, Overnight Vision Correction Treatment

The importance of eye exams for children

As a parent I appreciate the importance of eye exams for children. Children learn at school through their vision and unlike dental problems, you cannot replace a defective eye as you would with a tooth

Recent credible medical research has shown that children wearing glasses for short sightedness (or myopia) causes the eyes to grow larger and become MORE short sighted over time. So wearing glasses causes the eyes to get worse, and the glasses to become thicker and heavier at each stage of deterioration Also more short sighted eyes are at an increased risk of glaucoma & other eye diseases in later life. As a parent that is quite concerning! So is there a solution? Orthokeratology is the best way to tackle this problem!

So what is Orthokeratology?

OrthoK or OrthOkeratology is a Non surgical, Reversible, Overnight Vision Correction treatment. OrthoK uses a small contact lens on the surface of the eye to gently reshape the surface of the cornea, this then corrects the short sightedness fully while you sleep. This gives you freedom from glasses and contact contact lenses all day.

Knowing that we are having an impact on children’s eye development and growth is a huge benefit and really great news as a parent. At Q&D we have been treating children as young as 6 with Orthokeratology since 2003 with excellent results.

Growing credible medical research has now shown that using orthokeratology does indeed slow down the development of short sightedness in children which is great news. Orthokertology is not only for children, but adults too. Read more about this treatment on our website.
