Global Eyecare Center is the first and only eye clinic in Mindanao to offer Orthokeratology
September 30, 2018
Also known as Corneal Reshaping or Refractive Therapy, Orthokeratology is recommended for young patients who have myopia or nearsightedness. Myopia is currently one of the leading causes of glaucoma, macular degenerations, and retinal detachments. All other myopia treatments like eyeglasses, contact lenses, and LASIK surgery, aim to correct vision, but only Orthokeratology has been proven to control or stop myopia progression. This is why orthokeratology is the number 1 myopia treatment in the world. Aside from its ability to control myopia, it also gives you freedom from eyeglasses by reshaping your cornea. Hence, it is also the safer alternative to LASIK.
