This allows for clear vision during the day without needing glasses or contact lenses. Our optometrists in Rhodes are experienced in fitting ortho-k lenses and will provide thorough assessments and ongoing monitoring to ensure the safety and effectiveness of the treatment.

Frequently Asked Question

Myopia, also known as shortsightedness, is a common refractive error of the eye that causes distant objects to appear blurry, while objects close up are seen clearly. It occurs when the shape of the eye causes light to focus in front of the retina instead of directly on it, resulting in blurred vision in the distance.

The most common symptom of myopia is blurry distance vision. Other symptoms may include squinting, eye strain, tired eyes, headaches and moving closer to see things.

Myopia can be diagnosed through a comprehensive eye examination by an optometrist or ophthalmologist. The eye exam may include tests such as visual acuity, refraction, and measurement of the length and shape of the eye.

While myopia cannot be completely prevented, there are some measures that may help reduce the risk of its progression. These include spending time outdoors, taking regular breaks from near work, maintaining good posture while reading or using digital devices, and practising proper visual hygiene.

There are several treatment options for myopia called Myopia Control which helps slow down the progression of myopia in children and adolescents. Techniques include specialty glasses, soft multifocal contact lenses, orthokeratology (ortho-k) and atropine eye drops. General single vision glasses does NOT slow down myopia. 

Myopia is typically a progressive condition that tends to worsen over time. However, with proper management and treatment, the progression of myopia can be slowed down or even stopped completely to minimise further complications.

However, any increase in prescription comes with a higher risk of getting conditions. Regular eye examinations and proper myopia management are essential to prevent or minimise the risk of these complications.
