We are currently facing a myopia epidemic in today’s ever evolving society. More people today are becoming short sighted than they were years ago. This is due to the over exposure of screens whether it be gaming consoles or smart phones or computer screens. We are spending less time outdoors and more time inside. Being outside gives visual feedback that enables and regulates eye growth and refractive development.
Early intervention is key when dealing with the growing incidence of young people. SD Eye offers testing and fitting sessions to help reduce the myopia progression. Specially designed contact lenses help patients with myopia. The lenses are used to be worn overnight and help the cornea to aid in beneficial shape change. For best results we recommend Orthokeratology treatment and increased exposure to the bright outdoors.
