Myopia or nearsightedness is an increasingly prevalent condition that not only affects visual function, but can increase the risk of eye diseases as one gets older. Many interventions have been shown to reduce the progression of myopia, preserving vision and reducing the risk of vision loss over time.

The most common, corneal reshaping (also known as orthokeratology or ortho-k), uses a retainer lens to gradually and gently reshape the front surface of the eye (cornea) to temporarily correct myopia as your child sleeps.
