Why choose Vision One Eyecare for myopia control and Orthokeratology?
Dr. Laurence Wong has been treating myopic children and teenagers with Orthokeratology since 2014. He has performed over a hundred cases of myopia control treatment using Ortho-K lenses and Soft Multifocal contact lenses with great success.
He is an active member of American Academy of Orthokeratology and Myopic Control (AAOMC) and was recognized as a Fellow of international Academy of Orthokeratology and Myopic Control (FIAOMC).The FIAOMC distinction recognizes practitioners who have undergone advanced training and rigorous testing to demonstrate their level of expertise in the field of Orthokeratology (Ortho-K) and Myopic Control. In addition, he lectures on Ortho-K lens designs at the Orthokeratology conference in the U.S and Canada since 2018.
At Vision One Eyecare, Dr. Wong uses Custom Ortho-K lenses for better effective myopia correction and control. Traditional Ortho-K lenses have a limited range of efficacy for refractive error correction up to -6.00 D of nearsightedness and -1.75D of astigmatism. On the other hand, custom OK lenses broadens the treatment range up to -10.00 D of nearsightedness and -3.00 D of astigmatism. Studies by Professor Patrick Caroline at Pacific University and Dr. Michaud Langis at University of Montreal also supported that customized OK lenses have a more profound effect on slowing down the progression of near-sightedness in children.
