The number of children developing myopia across the world has substantially grown in a very short space of time. In some parts of the world myopia is at epidemic levels. In Europe it is currently estimated that 30% of children will develop myopia.
If myopia is left to progress (worsen), it can lead to serious complications with vision in later life. However, a number of recent studies have shown that the unique optics created by ortho-k (orthokeratology) can drastically slow and in some cases even stop myopic progression.
Optometrist Jaimin Patel has many years experience fitting children of all ages with Ortho K lenses. Vision Eyecare Opticians in Perivale is proud to be one of the very few optometry practices in London to offer this Myopia Control treatment.
