STAY UPDATED ON FUTURE WORKSHOPS -- Free education for all. You are invited!
STOP WORSENING EYESIGHT WITHOUT LASIK, CONTACTS OR GLASSES.
Join here for reminders on future dates:
ARE you are concerned that your child's vision deteriorates every year?
Are you getting a sense that glasses aren't doing anything to actually stop the vision from declining?
Are you nearsighted yourself, and want to make sure your child doesn't need thicker and thicker glasses every time they go to their optometrist?
The earlier you seek solutions the better.
There are many ways to stop your child's eyes from getting worse. It's all part of a process we call MYOPIA CONTROL. Instead of giving up on the root of the problem (vision getting worse over childhood), we now have ways to stop the progessing problem dead in its tracks.
Join Dr. Peter Charron, and Optometrist in Bellingham WA as he helps you understand ways to stop your childs vision from deteriorating: all without glasses, surgery, pills, or contact lenses worn during the day.
PARENTS: Do You Know How Your Child
SEES THEIR WORLD?
LEARN ABOUT ORTHOKERATOLOGY
One of the ways we can stop prescriptions from getting stronger each year is with lens retainers also called "Orthokeratology" This is a safe and effective way for you to see clearly all day without contacts, glasses, or surgery.
When our patients first find out about this treatment, they almost always say, "how come we haven't heard of this before?"
Most of the time, people think the only choices for correcting their vision are...
LASIK Eye Surgery
There are many positives for all the three treatments but they all certainly have their pitfalls.
Glasses aren't ideal when you are playing sports, mountain biking, skiing, swimming and so on.
Contact lenses can dry the eyes out.
Surgery on the eyes can be risky (it is your vision after all, and you only have two eyes).
OrthoK or (CRT) can be the solution to all these dilemmas.
Once you get past the beginning phases of the treatment (which take 1 to 2 weeks) you will see consistently well in the morning, afternoon and night without wearing any corrective lenses!
