Candidates for Ortho-K

While wearing glasses or contact lenses to correct myopia isn’t a problem, it can be limiting in some circumstances, for example, when swimming or playing some sports. Myopia is also a progressive condition which means that without treatment it will get worse. People with high myopia are more likely to experience issues with the health of their eyes, including problems like macular degeneration, cataracts, and glaucoma. Slowing its progression is strongly recommended among experts, and one way of doing this is through a fairly new treatment called orthokeratology, or Ortho-K for short.
