Kids with myopia often continue to develop myopia up till 16-18 years of age. Ortho K lenses are FDA approved contact lenses to be worn at night to correct vision during the day. Not only will kids have good vision during the day without needing to wear glasses or contact lenses, Ortho K also is one of the most effective technologies to slow down the development of myopia.
Yan’s daughter is 9 years old and has developed myopia. She is using Ortho K and enjoying normal daily activities without worrying about losing glasses or breaking them.
Active lifestyle for anyone
Ortho K can also be worn by anyone including adults who would like to be lens-free during the day. This is particularly suitable for adults with an active lifestyle or those who do not tolerate wearing contact lenses during the day.
Yan himself is an Ortho K wearer. He goes swimming with good vision and without worrying about amoeba infections that are associated with contact lens- water exposure.
