The Myopia Institute understands the need to prevent nearsightedness in people. With the skills of our doctors and our advanced technologies, we provide various ways to improve your vision.
- Corneal Reshaping Therapies
Refractive eye disorders occur when there are irregularities on the shape of the cornea or lens of the eye. Our doctors perform these corneal reshaping therapies in Chicago, IL, to help correct the abnormal curvature of the lens.
After our detailed examination of your child’s eyes, we may recommend the use of Orthokeratology or (Ortho K) lenses. Also known as Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT), this method serves as an alternative to LASIK and other surgical approaches to correcting impaired eyesight.
These Ortho K lenses in Chicago, IL, allow your child to have clear vision without using contact lenses or eyeglasses. Most users report that they can go about their day without need for their corrective eyewear. Studies also show that this is one of the safest methods for visual correction. This reduces the rate of change for prescription eyeglasses.
- Comprehensive Eye Exams for the Entire Family
Clear vision does not always portray excellent eyesight, as there are asymptomatic vision problems. Thus, routine eye exams are important. These establish the reference point of your eye health.
Prevention and early intervention help slow down progression of eye problems. Our doctors detect possible vision problems through these eye inspections. This also helps in the evaluation of your child’s recommended treatment regimen.
- Vision Training and Eyewear for Myopia Control
Vision therapy in Chicago, IL, involves series of exercises to improve visual skills, such as eye movement, control, and coordination. To improve your child’s eye accommodation, we may also prescribe bifocal or multifocal glasses or lenses as part of your vision training. These types of lenses provide proper prescriptions for distant and close viewing.
