Myopia Treatment Options From Your Optometrist in Bronx NY

Since myopia develops throughout the growing years before finally settling down, slowing that development in childhood can leave an individual with less severe myopia for life. Your child’s optometrist in Bronx NY, Dr. Lisitsyn or Dr. Ilyasova, can implement any of several treatment methods to help control nearsightedness, including:

Orthokeratology – Orthokeratology, better known as ortho-k, is the latest tool in our myopia control arsenal. Ortho-k lenses actually work as molds, gently and safely reshaping the corneal curvature during sleep for adults with myopia and other refractive errors. But in children, these lenses have the added benefit of reducing elongation of the eyeball, resulting in less myopia development.

If your nearsightedness is a done deal, don’t despair. Adults who already have a well-established case of myopia can always have their vision corrected easily and accurately with glasses or contact lenses. There’s even a permanent alternative: LASIK refractive surgery, in which the cornea is subtly reshaped by a laser to provide lens-free clarity. Our eye doctor will be happy to either fit you with corrective lenses or provide co-management of your LASIK procedure.
