As part of their Myopia Control Program, they will have regular follow-up appointments at scheduled intervals - including measurements to show whether the eyes have grown, proving whether their myopia is under control.

Orthokeratology has been shown to be very effective in slowing myopia progression in numerous peer-reviewed medical journals.
