Myopia and other refractive errors affect not only your overall well-being, but your safety and daily efficiency too. One of the ways to control their progression is to use contact lenses. While they offer many benefits, false information surrounding contact lenses may discourage you from wearing a pair.
Nearsightedness, or myopia, is a common problem for many people. There are different ways to control it and improve visual acuity. One method you may have heard of is wearing distance-center multifocal soft contact lenses. Today, Myopia Institute discusses how they work and how they differ from ortho k lenses.
Myopia, or nearsightedness, is a refractive problem that causes compromised far-range visual acuity while your close-range eyesight remains sharp. Different from using corrective lenses and undergoing surgeries, orthokeratology is a corneal-reshaping therapy effective in controlling myopia progression.
