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.

At Perigo Family EyeCare, your child's visual well-being is one of our top priorities. We're committed to offering a range of effective myopia management treatments tailored to your child's unique needs.

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.

Awesome experience! Dr. Perigo takes the time to explain everything and gives by far the most compr... ehensive eye exam ever. I usually go into that thinking it's just mainly an appointment to get glasses but Dr. Perigo takes the time to explain eye health and changes since the last appointment, so I left feeling a little smarter about my health. Highly recommended.

Just moved to Grove City, and needed an eye doctor. I've had many issues in the past with the presc... ription. My wife had just gone here and she had great things to say. My visit had meet all expectations. The receptionist greeted me when I entered the office. My wait was short and they ran the tests with current tools and gadgets. Next, I meet with the Dr. and we chatted a bit and finished the exam. It was just a really comfortable and nice experience to have, and most important she got my prescription right. Would highly recommend giving Perigo a shot if your looking for a place to try.

The doctors here are friendly and skilled. They use the latest tech to evaluate your eyesight and ex... plain what is going on in easy to understand terms. They are also great with children. They genuinely care about improving your eyesight, rather than making extra money on things you don't need. I initially went to another eye doctor in town, and they diagnosed her with an eye condition that she did not have. The doctors here at Perigo Family Eye Care quickly saw that wasn't the case and gave her a prescription that helped her eyesight tremendously. If you're looking for a great eye doctor in Grove City, you should go here.
