Congratulations for Dr. Sal for being part of the first 17 Optometrists globally to have passed the advanced exams for Myopia Management.

Dr. Sal has a special interested in Myopia Control for kids aged 6-16 years old using a special contact lens designed to shape the front surface of the eye and reduce the progression of myopia. Myopia is now the The Biggest Eye Health Threat of the 21st Century. We now know from the World Health Organization; the rate of myopia prevalence has doubled over the past 20 years. By 2050, half of the world’s population is projected to be myopic – and 1 billion are expected to have high myopia.

The benefits of these of myopia control include, but are not limited to:

  • Better quality of life
  • Reducing the strength of future glasses prescription
  • Reducing the risk of sight threatening conditions (i.e. glaucoma, cataracts, retinal detachment, etc.)
  • Reducing dependability on glasses when older

This treatment uses specially designed retainers to reshape the front surface of the eye (the cornea) to reduce the progression of myopia (nearsightedness). The retainers are only worn at night while sleeping. This process is often referred to as orthokeratology. The lenses allow for clear, lens free vision during the day and are designed specifically with the goal of reducing the rate of progression of myopia. It does this by changing how light is focused in the back for the eye.
