Myopia Management via NightLens

NightLens OrthoK is a procedure for correcting myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism by gently reshaping the cornea with special vision retainers called NightLenses. Sleeping overnight in your NightLenses will gently reshape your cornea; when you awaken, remove your NightLenses and SEE WITHOUT CONTACTS, GLASSES, OR SURGERY. NightLens can also keep a child’s eyes from getting worse through myopia control! Experience clear vision during the day without contact lenses or eyeglasses or surgery!

Q:  What is amblyopia?

A:  Amblyopia or “lazy eye” is a condition in which vision is reduced because the eye and the brain are not working together properly. This may be due to an eye turn, congenital cataract, eyelid drooping, or unequal or very high glasses prescriptions. These conditions create amblyopia because they interfere with the brain’s ability to learn to perceive the world.

Q. What is Convergence Insufficiency?

A. Convergence Insufficiency is the inability to keep the eyes turned in sufficiently to maintain a single image at near, i.e. while reading. It often causes a child to see the words “running together” while reading, which is actually a form of double vision.

Q. What is Accomodative Insufficiency?

A. Accomodative Insufficiency is the inability to focus to keep a clear image at near. It can cause fatigue and headaches with prolonged near work, especially after a full day at school.

Q.  How is ADD/ADHD related to vision learning disorders?

A.  Kids with ADD/ADHD have a hard time paying attention and focusing on tasks.  Sometimes this lack of attention can be from a vision related learning disorder rather than ADD/ADHD.  If a child sees double when reading – then they will not pay attention.  ADD/ADHD has been studied to correlate with Accomodative Insufficiency and Convergence Insufficiency at a high rate.  Reference(s):https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3944293/
