Video: Ortho-K Q&A
Vision Shaping Therapy (sometimes called Ortho-K) involves specially designed lenses that are worn at night while your child sleeps.
During the night, these lenses actually reshape your cornea and your child wakes up to clear vision which lasts throughout the day without having to use glasses or contacts.
1) VST corrects nearsightedness while your child sleeps.
2) Ortho-K has been shown to slow the progress of nearsightedness.
3) Your child will not need glasses or contacts during the day.
The opticians are friendly!
I like the doctors, they definitely know what they are doing and are very kind!
