KN started our myopia control program 2/27/16. It was not easy for KN to start, but he’s making progress every time we see him. KN was slightly anxious, which made taking pictures and maps challenging.
At the beginning, his father helped to insert and remove the lenses for him to fast track his progress. This sometimes is important so that we can get good measurable results so that we don’t get misleading maps or outcomes.
Because of his astigmatism, we decided to start with the iSEE Advanced Ortho-K lenses.
We reached 20/25– and 20/50– upon one week of wearing the lenses.
After 3 weeks, we got 20/20 and 20/25++. There was just a centration issue with the left eye that we had to fine tune, but no other issues with the system.
Our plan was to teach him to be self sufficient by the end of summer so that he does not have to rely on his father for help.
Today, June 28, 2016, KN is seeing 20/20 in each eye. We reviewed insertion and removal techniques for KN and felt comfortable in seeing him in the fall.
KN is now on a 3 month follow up schedule.
