Our Myopia Management programs utilize Atropine therapy, Orthokeratology, Multifocal Soft Contact Lenses, and the MiSight lens. MiSight is a 1-day disposable, soft contact lens that fits and feels like a usual contact lens. It not only corrects distance vision, like a typical contact lens or glasses, but has the added benefit of being clinically proven (and FDA approved in late 2019) to slow the progression of myopia.

ORTHOKERATOLOGY OR ORTHO-K
Ortho-K is a non-surgical option that corrects myopia without the daytime use of glasses or contact lenses. Ortho-K lenses are worn at night, and correct the curvature of the cornea while sleeping, so you can see clearly during the day. In multiple clinical trials, Ortho-K has been proven to reduce myopia progression by more than 50%. We use the only FDA approved methods and materials when possible including Paragon CRT.
Vision Therapy or VT
In the case of learning disabilities, vision therapy is specifically directed toward resolving visual problems which interfere with reading, learning and educational instruction.
