Why should you choose Dr. Smith for your Myopia Control Treatment?

Dr. Smith is widely recognized in the Springfield area as the local authority on controlling the progression of myopia. Using the latest treatments and technologies, Dr. Smith has been ensuring clearer future vision for myopia patients since 1992.

What is Myopia?

Myopia or as it is commonly known, "shortsighted" or "nearsighted" is a condition that develops and continues to worsen during school years. Not that long ago, this condition was addressed only with corrective lenses. However, there are long term risks associated with Myopia, particularly if it began early and progresses quickly. These risks include serious eye diseases and conditions including glaucoma, macular degeneration, and even retinal detachment.

Treatment for Myopia

Treatments such as "ortho-k" ― orthokeratology, also known as GVSS contacts ― is an effective and safe way to simultaneously correct vision problems while slowing down and even halting the progression of myopia during the crucial child and teen years.

Myopia Control Q&A with Dr. Smith

What are my treatment options for Myopia Control?

There are a number of treatment options for effective control of myopia. The most popular treatments include Multi-Focal Contact Lenses, and Orthokeratology (also known as Corneal Reshaping Therapy or CRT as well as GVSS ― Gentle Vision Shaping Systems).

CRT and multifocal contact lenses for myopia control work by gently reshaping the cornea at night, so your child doesn't even need to wear glasses during the day. This has the added benefit of increasing self-esteem, improving peripheral vision, and reducing the chances of sports related injuries.
