Myopia Control using Gas Permeable Contact Lenses

Grant has been wearing Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) contact lenses of the past 4-5 years. His vision has been stable since he started wearing them. He does daily exercises to relax the eyes and also has been going to eye therapy sessions recommended by Dr. Harris. I don't know what would have happened had we not found Dr. Harris. I am grateful everyday for finding Dr. Harris. At my recommendation, my nephew is also seeing Dr. Harris for myopia control.

Note from Dr. Harris: Grant was progressing rather rapidly in myopia/nearsightedness that began early in his school years. RGP's are the most powerful tool I know to stop the progression of myopia dead in its tracks. It does not always work but in most cases the progression stops and the amount of myopia can be held while the child goes through their growth years. Once he is an adult he will be in an excellent position to look into alternatives of care to reduce the myopia. The main thing during the growth years is to stop the rampant progression of myopia that we see far too often. Many children progress from -0.75 to -1.25 per school year. The higher degree of myopia is associated with eye health problems later in life. It is very rewarding to be able to offer a treatment that stops this progression and allows me to give my patients full clarity at distance.
