Myopia Management is a treatment program we offer to our young patients to try to stabilize their prescription from getting worse at a rapid pace. We primarily use orthokeratology lenses in our myopia control program. Ortho-K (orthokeratology) is very exciting. It's safe and it works! It is non-surgical and simply, your child wears therapeutic contact lenses while he/she sleeps. Upon awakening vision is clear, and your child does not need to wear glasses, nor contacts during the day.
Alarmingly, the number of children in the United States with myopia is increasing. Myopia is a disease, which can lead to glaucoma, macular degeneration, and retinal detachments. We felt that we needed to provide a service to help our young patients from getting more nearsighted, which is why we offer Ortho-K. We have been very successful in slowing down myopia in our children population using ortho-k lenses.
Dr. Reynolds is one of the most experienced myopia management doctors in Colorado Springs. Dr. Reynolds and her staff are very caring and will walk you through the process to help you and your child attain your goals.
This is one of the most exciting services we offer because it is so life-changing!
