Myopia is more commonly referred to as nearsightedness, or the inability to see objects clearly at a distance. Myopia is on the rise – in its frequency and its severity.3 The reason for its escalation has been linked to two factors:
Children with one or two myopic parents are more likely to be myopic.
Children who spend more time on activities like reading or using handheld devices instead of spending time outdoors are more likely to become myopic.
We are now certified in the Brilliant Futures™ Myopia Management Program, featuring MiSight® 1 day contact lenses, the first and only soft contact lens FDA approved* to slow the progression of myopia in children ages 8 to 12 at initiation of treatment.
MiSight® 1 day is a soft contact lens that uses ActivControl™ Technology to slow the elongation of the eyes. ActivControl™ Technology simultaneously corrects a child's vision while training the eye to resist growing in length.
Children can insert the soft, daily wear, single use contact lenses in their eyes in the morning, wear them for at least 10 hours during the day, then dispose of them in the evening.
More than just vision correction, myopia management with MiSight® 1 day contact lenses can help keep your child’s future brilliant.

Orthokeratology (Ortho-K) is a non-surgical procedure that involves the wearing of a series of specially designed rigid contact lenses to progressively reshape the curvature of the cornea over time.
Ortho-K is a non-surgical procedure using specially designed contact lenses to gently reshape the curvature of the eye to improve vision.
This is a revolutionary non-surgical procedure that eliminates the need for glasses or daytime contact lenses. It improves vision by gently reshaping your eye WHILE YOU SLEEP using specially designed therapeutic contact lenses. You just put the specially fitted lenses in at bedtime, and when you awake, you will have clear, sharp, natural vision for your waking hours.
The results of the painless procedure are not permanent; thus, retainer contact lenses must be worn periodically to maintain improvements made in vision. This safe and effective treatment can correct low to moderate nearsightedness and low degrees of astigmatism. It is a great alternative to LASIK for those who don’t want the risk or are not ready for surgery.
