Myopia control is the science of slowing the progression of nearsightedness (myopia). High levels of nearsightedness are associated with higher risks for eye diseases, such as glaucoma, cataracts, and retinal detachment. Our doctors are certified orthokeratologists with more than 15 years combined experience working with myopia control, and they specialize in the fitting of Orthokeratology lenses (OrthoK, CRT, Dreamlens). They also work with medicated eye drops (atropine), as well as soft multifocal contact lenses (Naturalvue) which have been shown to slow the progression of myopia.
We also have an excellent, well-trained staff. Our technicians show patience and understand the proper procedures for lens insertion and removal, as well as lens care. We pride ourselves on making your experience comfortable and informative. If you are interested in myopia control for your child, or you just want to eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses during the day, contact our office at (512) 258-2120 for a free consultation.
