Treating and diagnosing myopiaAndrew Morgenstern, OD, FAAO, sits down to talk myopia in children and adults, how to treat it, and how to go prevent it at the American Optometric Association’s Optometry’s Meeting in Washington, DC.
Fitting ortho-k contact lensesOrthokeratology is a specialty type of contact lens fitting in which the patient wears correction overnight and is free from wearing visual correction during the day. By fitting the patient into a reverse geometry gas permeable lens, the practitioner can make controlled but temporary refractive changes to the cornea. It is a treatment that has been proven to be safe and effective in both children and adults with promising results in the area of controlling myopia progression.
