Did You Know That Myopia Is Skyrocketing in the US & Canada?

50% of the global population is expected to be myopic by 2050.

Not only does it cause nearsightedness and make it harder to see far away objects, but myopia is also associated with other conditions, such as: 

  • Retinal atrophy
  • Macular degeneration
  • Higher risk of glaucoma
  • Greater likelihood of retinal detachment
  • Lattice degeneration

That's why it is critical to do something about your myopia right away!


How Orthokeratology Slows Myopia Progression

Imagine waking up every morning with clear and sharp vision. Thanks to these specialty lenses, you don’t have to wear glasses or contacts during the day, and best of all — this treatment is surgery-free!

Moreover, Ortho-K slows or halts eye elongation in children and teens, which radically reduces the risk of myopia progression!

Children and adults with myopia can use Ortho-K lenses to reshape the cornea. Simply insert at night before going to bed and remove them in the morning to see clearly.

Working for an optical office I was weary sending my mom here cause of the recent reviews. However m... y mother enjoyed it even though she's a pretty decent critic. Like another lady said in the other reviews, it went well with her. Thanks guys!

Dr. Kim took care of me, and the entire team made me feel very comfortable, welcomed, and enthusiast... ic to help me. I did my insurance intake online, so the confirmation and check in intake when I got there was very easy. During my exam, I was very comfortable and I genuinely feel like they took the time to truly do a thorough exam, while also explaining what was happening if I had questions. At the end of the “1 or 2” options, I was asked to close my eyes and Dr. Kim flipped through the lenses. When she stopped and asked me to look, I saw clearly for the first time in a long time. She also took time to thoroughly explain everything that was happening with my vision. Before this appointment, I had a dental appointment that absolutely brought me to tears solely due to how I was treated, and then again afterwards at my psychiatrists office. The entire highlight of my day was being at Eyeland and having such a positive experience. Thank you so so much to the entire Eyeland Team that I worked with

I visited Eyeland Vision on 3/29/23 for an eye exam. Dr. Kathy phan took care of me. I want to thank... Dr. Phan and her staff for an excellent and professional work, see you soon. Thanks.

After reading all of the reviews I was nervous about coming here. I'm glad I came though! I didn't h... ave any problems as the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They gave me my prescription with no issues and didn't force me to try to buy glasses at all. They asked if I wanted to or not but that was it. I was aware of the retina exam before I came in, but they did tell me before I went back and asked if I was okay with that, which for some people might be a deal breaker as everyone has to do it to be seen there and it cost me $45 as most insurance companies seem to not cover it but I was perfectly fine to pay for it and do the exam. That's my personal preference though so that is something to consider. I love that the online appointment system was easy to set up and that they accepted my insurance (Tricare). The doctors were very nice and knowledgeable. I would come back here again!

The staff is professional and efficient. Waiting time is minimal. Doctor Phan is thorough and precis... e. She took her time and explained all of the procedures.

We were unsure of what sunglasses to select, Wendy and Christy were great and walking us through the... process. They explained the product in great detail. Wendy's knowledge of selecting the right product for our son put us at ease knowing he was in good hands. We felt confident we picked the right product and will continue to come back for the awesome service. Just like leap year gives that extra day in February, Wendy gives you that extra help you need. Christy is there to complete the dynamic duo. Thanks again!

Ortho-K FAQs

Am I a candidate for Ortho-K?

Most people with mild to moderate myopia, with mild astigmatism and some cases of presbyopia are good candidates for Ortho-K. Children over the age of 8 and young adults who want to be free of glasses and contacts but who are not good candidates for refractive surgery due to age or other reasons (i.e., severe dry eyes, high costs, health risks) often are good candidates. Those who lead active lifestyles and who participate in contact sports also benefit from Ortho-K.

Can I use Ortho-K if I have astigmatism?

Our practice has seen fantastic results in patients with mild astigmatism, but high astigmatism is normally more complex in the design and fit. We can design a mold for your specific cornea, but it will depend on the individual case. An in-person consultation and eye evaluation at Eyeland Vision in Northeast El Paso will allow us to better determine whether it's feasible.

How long does it take for Ortho-K to work?

Our patients consistently report improved vision after using Ortho-K. Some patients can experience perfect vision after a day or two of overnight Ortho-K. But higher prescriptions can take 2 or more weeks for maximum correction. Keep in mind that the refractive state regresses to pretreatment levels once the lens is no longer worn.

Can I use Ortho-K lenses if I have dry eye syndrome?

Ortho-K lenses don't aggravate dry eyes, since tear evaporation, a main cause of dry eye, doesn't occur when the eyes are closed during sleep. However, those with severe dry eyes may apply artificial tears or other drops before inserting Ortho-K lenses at night. Dry eyes resulting from arthritis or collagen-vascular disease may interfere with this treatment, but this can be determined during the eye doctor's assessment.

Does Ortho-K Hurt?

Ortho-K lenses do not hurt and should not hurt. Certain people may feel a slight foreign body sensation, but with time, the eyes become [desensitized] to the lenses.
