Sclera contacts are large rigid gas permeable lenses that not only cover the cornea but extend to the sclera, the white of the eye. These contacts are more comfortable than the smaller contacts. They are used in people who have keratoconus or pellucid marginal degeneration, where the cornea is irregular.

Myopia is not a disease that is easy to manage but, you will see progress if you confide with the right specialist. Contacts and glasses is where most of us start off. Ortho-k is a great alternative because you wear them when you are sleeping.

We must thank God that there is a lot of alternatives for our eyes. Myopia is on the rise and there is a lot of research to be done. After you have done your research, than you can figure out and decide between the freedom sight method or ortho-k.

Orthokeratology is a process where the contour of cornea is reshaped to reduce myopia. Researchers have recently developed a new type of semi-rigid contact lens known as ortho K. When worn at night by children, it reshapes the cornea, and there is no need to wear glasses in the morning.

We all would love to have 20/20 vision but for some reason we end up with glasses and contacts.There is nothing wrong with that but I know many of us want to be like the people who do not have to wear glasses. Maybe there is a way to avoid surgery by trying out ortho-k-contacts.

Keratoconus is an eye disorder where the cornea is thin. It affects one in 200 americans. The middle of the cornea become thin and start to bulge outwards. This changes the refractive process and produces distortion of vision. About 20% will need a corneal transplant or use of ultraviolet radiation.

In keratoconus the cornea becomes thin and bulges. This causes distortion of light and vision. Keratoconus can be treated with contacts but not with soft contact lenses. Rigid gas permeable contacts work better and give a clearer vision. Another option is hybrid contact lenses which are more comfortable than rigid lenses.
