Ways to Manage Myopia in Children

Why is myopia management vital? It's about ensuring that your child's vision remains vibrant and unburdened by nearsightedness as they develop and lessening the risk of eye diseases later in life. Controlling myopia also improves their daily quality of life and contributes to academic success.

Vision Correction with Orthokeratology

Orthokeratology, or ortho-k, represents a modern and innovative myopia management treatment. This non-surgical approach involves custom-designed, gas-permeable contact lenses that temporarily reshape the cornea. These specialized lenses work their magic overnight, gently correcting your child's vision, and are removed in the morning for clear vision during the day.

The various benefits of ortho-k make it an appealing choice for many parents.

  • Daytime Freedom from Glasses or Contacts

    Ortho-k affords your child the freedom to see clearly throughout the day without needing eyeglasses or contact lenses.

  • Slows Myopia Progression

    Research has shown that ortho-k can help curb the development of nearsightedness, potentially reducing the risk of more severe vision problems in the future.

  • Convenient and Safe

    Ortho-k lenses are a safe and versatile option for managing myopia in children of various ages. They are easy to use and maintain, providing parents peace of mind.

  • Improved Self Confidence

    Ortho-k lenses can significantly boost your child's self-confidence with clear vision without visible vision correction.

I recently had the pleasure of visiting Dr. Kelly for an eye exam, and I must say, the experience wa... s nothing short of exceptional. From the moment I stepped into the clinic, I was greeted with warmth and professionalism. The atmosphere was welcoming, and the staff were incredibly helpful, making the entire process smooth and comfortable. Dr. Kelly stands out not just for her expertise but also for her ability to connect with patients on a personal level. She took the time to thoroughly explain each step of the examination, ensuring that I was comfortable and informed throughout. Her attention to detail and genuine concern for my eye health was evident, making me feel valued and well-cared for. What impressed me most was Dr. Kelly’s dedication to using the latest technology and her knowledge to provide the best possible care. She answered all my questions with patience and provided me with valuable advice on maintaining my eye health. I left the clinic feeling reassured and well-informed about my eye health. It’s clear that Dr. Kelly and her team go above and beyond for their patients, and I cannot recommend them highly enough. If you’re looking for an optometrist who truly cares about your well-being, Dr. Kelly is the one to see.

I had an eye emergency and tried to get in everywhere in town with no luck until I called Mountain V... iew. Even though they had no availability got me in last minute on a Friday afternoon and took great care of me. They were professional and thorough and I would recommend them to anyone who asked. I am incredibly grateful for their compassion and willingness to help.

Unfortunately, Mountain View isn't in my insurance network, however, I wanted to give these guys a g... ood review solely based on the through-the-roof customer service I received from their receptionist, Katie. That quality of service seems far too uncommon these days, so credit where it's due. Thank you, Katie!

I had interactions with 3 employees, Tasha who set me up in my room and initial assessment, then Dr.... kelly for the eye exam, and Isabel to help me pick out frames. Incredible experience, super knowledgeable Staff and incredibly friendly and patient. Out of 15 years of going to eye doctors this is hands down the best experience I've had. On top of it all, their prices are phenomenal and many discounts offered. I'll definitely be using them for as long as I'm in Colorado. A++++!

Best eye exam I've ever had. Dr. Kelly German was exceptional - knowledgeable, education-oriented an... d has a great sense of humor. She figured out a discrepancy in two eyeglass prescriptions that I had from another practice in town and found a great solution. I'm grateful!

I worked with the Abel’s for 2 years in the past, and would recommend this optometric clinic over ... any other in Northern Colorado. Their equipment rivals the Eye Center of Northern Colorado, and the experience of Dr. Amy helped diagnose me with vision focus issues. They even offer vision therapy, which is incredibly find, as well. I’ll continue going here for as long as I live in Fort Collins/Loveland.
