Ortho k - is your child ready? | 28.08.2009
Knowing if a child is ready for contact lenses such as ortho k
is a big step.
For some, it will be the first medical issue that a young one may be able to deal with by themselves.
Denise DeWitt, writing for EmpowHer, suggested that there are some basic questions that parents should ask themselves to check if their child is ready.
Among things to look out for include maturity - is a child adult enough to deal with the responsibility? - and hygiene - is a child fully aware of the importance of personal hygiene to make sure their eyes don't get infected from poor cleaning?
She also urged the parents of sporty and active children
to look into contact lenses.
Ortho k lenses are a brilliant solution for parents that are worried about their children
using daywear eye solutions.
Worn at night, ortho k lenses gently reshape the cornea so that natural vision
is restored for the day ahead.
It can be a great option for children and well worth looking into for parents seeking an alternative eye care solution for shortsightedness.
