We are excited to offer your child a spot in our Myopia Control Clinic. We are certified to prescribe Paragon Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT) and other orthokeratology retainer contact lenses.
Myopia control lenses or Ortho-k lenses are customized contact lenses that gently reshape the cornea, the front part of the eye, overnight, allowing children to enjoy clear vision the following day—without needing to wear glasses or contact lenses. They’re ideal for people with myopia (nearsightedness).Type your paragraph here.

Like all refractive surgery candidates, you may qualify, but may not be the best candidate due to dry eyes, large pupils, irregular sleep patterns, etc. We will encourage you to ask lots of questions. We will try to discuss your goals and our goals to see if you or your child may be a good candidate for this program.
This program takes commitment from the patient/parent and us. The patient will need to commit to the program including using the lenses, the quarterly exams and all follow-up exams needed. We are committed to providing you with the best technology by investing in a Medmont Corneal Topographer, ReeSeeVit Elite Series Anterior Segment Camera, and Paragon CRT diagnostic kit.

"I started wearing glasses at age 5. By the time I was 13, my vision was at -5.25 in one eye and -3.75 in the other. At first, I didn't want to join this program because I was nervous about having anything going near my eye to the point I couldn't even use eyedrops. However, after I met with Dr. Pham and listened to his instructions, I was able to overcome my fear and continue with the program."
-Savanna (Patient since 2011)
We are happy to say this case had great results, though results may vary. At the start Savanna’s vision was approximately 20/400. After a month, it was 20/20.
