Prescription glasses or contact lenses can ensure that patients with myopia enjoy clear vision. Nevertheless, slowing its progression is recommended since patients with high myopia have been shown to be more likely to experience more severe vision problems in the future, some of which can have permanent consequences for your vision. These include glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and even retinal detachment. Orthokeratology, or ortho k for short, is the name given to a very popular and innovative myopia management condition.
Every patient is different, and this means that if you decide you would like to wear contact lenses, you will first need to attend an appointment to assess your eyes and determine which type of contacts will be most suited to your needs. Some patients will be recommended to wear scleral lenses.
