Childhood myopia can have a profound impact on a child's visual wellness and overall development. It can hinder their ability to see clearly in school, participate in sports, and enjoy outdoor activities. If left untreated, myopia can progress rapidly, leading to more severe levels of nearsightedness and increasing the risk of developing sight-threatening conditions later in life.

When you think of eye conditions, common issues such as nearsightedness or farsightedness might come to mind. But beyond these well-known conditions lie a spectrum of less common, often more complex eye problems that can significantly impact your life. These uncommon eye conditions can manifest with a variety of symptoms, and they often require specialized care and treatment options. Understanding these conditions is the first step in recognizing their symptoms and seeking appropriate care.

In the modern era, digital devices have become an integral part of our daily lives. From smartphones and laptops to televisions and tablets, we are continuously bombarded with digital content. While these devices offer numerous benefits, from communication and entertainment to work and education, their excessive use can have negative effects on our health.

Orthokeratology, commonly known as Ortho-k, is a non-surgical procedure that uses specially designed contact lenses to reshape the cornea overnight, providing clear vision without the need for glasses or contact lenses during the day. This revolutionary method has gained popularity among those seeking an alternative to traditional vision correction methods.

With so many advances, people now have many options for contact lenses. Not only does that include individuals that require minimal vision correction but also those with more serious eye conditions. One of those, Keratoconus or KC, causes distorted vision. However, the right contact lenses can improve a person’s eyesight.

Atropine eye drops have been used for decades by optometrists and ophthalmologists to treat various eye conditions. Traditionally, these drops were prescribed for the treatment of amblyopia (lazy eye) and to temporarily paralyze the focusing muscles of the eye during eye exams. However, recent research has shown that atropine eye drops can also be used to control the progression of myopia, a common eye condition affecting millions of people worldwide.

If you have been having trouble finding a good fit with scleral lenses, there is still a chance that this type of contact lens could work for you. Read on to learn more.

Orthokeratology is a nonsurgical method of correcting nearsightedness (and sometimes farsightedness and astigmatism) using specially designed contacts that are worn while you sleep. They gently reshape the cornea to improve your vision during the day without needing glasses or daytime contact lenses.

Scleral Lenses are recommended for individuals with astigmatism due to their ability to correct the irregular shape of the cornea or the front surface of the eye caused by astigmatism. Unlike traditional gas permeable contact lenses, which only rest on the cornea, scleral lenses are designed to vault over the cornea and rest on the sclera, the white part of the eye. This provides a number of benefits for individuals with astigmatism, including improved visual acuity, greater stability, and less lens rotation.
