Correcting Eyesight for Healthy Vision
Doctors who qualify as members of The Myopia Institute use their clinical experience combined with information gleaned from peer-reviewed scientific research to help determine how best to correct, not just control, myopia from an early age. While we can control the progression of myopia, it is also possible to minimize the need for vision correction surgery if myopia control is started early enough for children.
Corneal Reshaping — LASIK and other Surgeries for Adults
In adults, myopia may be reversed through refractive eye surgeries like LASIK, PRK and Cataract removal. Rather than controlling or slowing the symptoms of myopia, these surgeries are designed to correct the optics of the eye through Corneal reshaping. Surgeons actually flatten the curve of the cornea in myopic individuals, reducing the length of the eyeball and correcting the vision problem. If our doctors believe corrective surgery is the best option for your child, we’ll work with you to find a well-regarded doctor to perform the surgery.
Corneal Reshaping — Non Surgical Orthokeratology and CRT
For children, Orthokeratology (OrthoK or CRT) can be a safe and effective non-surgical method of controlling myopic change AND correcting vision. Read more about Orthokeratology. There is no non-surgical method that has been proven to permanently correct myopia, but at the Myopia Institute we present the scientific studies regarding treatments that have been proven to slow the progress of myopia and reduce the risk of it increasing.
