Myopia Control Solutions at Top One Optical

Myopia, commonly known as nearsightedness, is a vision condition that causes distant objects to appear blurry while close objects remain clear. The prevalence of myopia is rising globally, making effective control strategies more important than ever. At Top One Optical, we specialize in myopia control, utilizing the latest research and technology to slow the progression of myopia and protect our patients’ long-term vision.

Understanding Myopia Control

Myopia control refers to the use of specific treatments to slow the progression of nearsightedness in children and young adults. Without intervention, myopia can progress rapidly, leading to higher prescriptions and increasing the risk of developing serious eye conditions later in life, such as retinal detachment, glaucoma, and cataracts.

Symptoms of Myopia in Children

  • Squinting or narrowing of the eyes when looking at distant objects
  • Frequent headaches, complaints of tiredness or eyestrain
  • Sitting closer to the front of the classroom or TV screen
  • Holding books or digital devices close to the face when reading
  • Rubbing the eyes frequently
  • Copying friends’ school work in class
  • Poor performance or falling behind in class; losing focus in class

Advanced Eye Diagnosis

Myopia generally occurs because the eyeball is too “long” as measured from front to back. An optical biometer is a sophisticated device used in ophthalmology to accurately measure various parameters of the eye, including the length of the eyeball and it’s essential for planning and executing eye surgeries, most notably cataract surgery and refractive surgery.

Optical biometers utilize light (optical) technology, such as partial coherence interferometry (PCI) or optical low-coherence reflectometry (OLCR), to take these measurements non-invasively, quickly, and with high precision. This advancement over traditional ultrasound biometry offers the advantage of not requiring contact with the eye, making the process more comfortable for the patient and reducing the risk of infection.

  • Visual Hygiene: Safeguarding your child’s eyes against myopia progression! Crafted with care, these smart practices are tailored to ease the strain caused by activities like extensive reading or screen time, which are known to exacerbate nearsightedness. With simple adjustments like taking regular breaks, optimizing lighting and screen settings, and encouraging outdoor play, visual hygiene empowers parents to take proactive steps in nurturing their child’s eye health and curbing the progression of myopia.

Ortho-K: Tackling Childhood Myopia

There is an increasing prevalence of myopia, or shortsightedness, among children. This condition doesn’t just blur distant vision; it also heightens the risk of severe eye problems in adulthood, including retinal detachment and glaucoma. Enter orthokeratology (Ortho-K), a forward-thinking approach to managing childhood myopia effectively.

The Role of Ortho-K in Managing Myopia

Ortho-K utilizes custom-designed, oxygen-permeable lenses to gently modify the cornea’s curvature overnight. This adjustment not only corrects vision temporarily, allowing for clear sight without daytime eyewear but also plays a pivotal role in myopia management. Demonstrated to significantly decelerate myopia’s progression in young individuals, Ortho-K is instrumental in safeguarding long-term ocular health by mitigating the potential for more critical conditions down the line.
