How would you like to see during the day without contact lenses or glasses? Ortho-K makes that possible with the fitting of gas permeable night contact lenses! The process is reversible and a non-surgical alternative to LASIK and other refractive surgeries. Dr. Sana and Dr. Alireza Somji are highly experienced in fitting Ortho-K lenses to help manage myopia progression, especially in children, teens, and young adults.
1) To temporarily correct myopia so you don’t need contact lenses or glasses during the day. This is a great option for swimmers, athletes, and patients who are around dust or suffer from dry eyes, both of which make wearing soft or gas permeable contact lenses challenging.
2) To slow or decrease the rate of progression of childhood myopia. Many parents are concerned when their child’s eyeglass prescription continues to change year after year. Ortho-K is the number one choice in myopia control. This is important as several studies have shown that Ortho-K lenses can actually slow the rate of progression in myopia in children.
Our practice offers two types of Ortho-K lenses; Vision Shaping Treatment and CRT. Our doctors are highly experienced in fitting Ortho-K lenses. They will be able to identify if you or your child is a good candidate for these custom-fit lenses and what the best treatment option is for managing their myopia.
Schedule an appointment with Drs. Alireza and Sana Somji to see if Ortho-K is the right choice for you or your child.
