Ortho K is one form of myopia management that we offer at Westlake Hills Vision Center. We use the Euclid Emerald CRT. It is a nonsurgical myopia treatment option that has been proven on nearly 2 million eyes around the world. Similar to a custom dental retainer worn overnight to correct teeth, Euclid Emerald lenses work to gently reshape the cornea and correct vision while your child sleeps
Once the lenses are removed in the morning, your child’s eyes naturally maintain their corrected shape, so they have clear vision all day without the need for daytime contact lenses or glasses. This advanced treatment for Myopia Management is safe, comfortable, effective, and FDA-approved.
Orthokeratology (Ortho K) has been shown to, on average, slow myopia by slightly less than 50%.
