Due to the amount of work children and adults have to perform daily on the computer, smart phones and tablets, there is actually a shortsightedness epidemic. People are becoming short-sighted faster than ever before. If you are not currently shortsighted, it is best to schedule an Vision Evaluation with our Vision specialist (Neuro-Developmental & Behavioral optometrist), Mr Stanley at Sun Time Vision Specialist Centre.

It provides a safe effective way to stop the shortsightedness (Myopia, Rabun Jauh, 近视) from getting worse and make your child less dependent on contacts or glasses during the day.
Our Vision specialist (Neuro-Developmental & Behavioral optometrist), Mr. Stanley has been helping children slow down the speed that they were becoming shortsighted (Rabun Jauh, 近视) by using this Ortho-K. Kids love it! They are very active in sports, in addition to reading and studying a lot, and they love the freedom they have during the day without worrying about glasses or contacts.
What Causes Shortsightedness (Rabun Jauh 近视) ?
Shortsightedness (Rabun Jauh 近视) can be due to a number of different reasons. The most common reason is that the eyes are working too hard when looking at things up close, such as for reading, because the eyes are not working together correctly. If your eyes are not working together correctly when you are reading it can make it difficult to focus on objects or words for long periods of time. Some people have so much difficulty looking up close that they have trouble reading even for a short period of time.
Why Doesn’t Everyone Become Shortsighted Or Have Their Shortsightedness (Rabun Jauh 近视) Get Worse?
If one is only shortsighted (Rabun Jauh 近视), their eyes will get more shortsighted (Rabun Jauh 近视) gradually over time. But when your eyes don’t work together correctly, or have difficulty changing focus from up close to far away, you will work harder to see up close. This is what makes the shortsightedness (Rabun Jauh近视) get worse too quickly.
How Do We Slow Down Or Reverse Shortsightedness (Rabun Jauh 近视) ?
In most cases we are able to reduce the prescription as well as reverse the shortsightedness (Myopia, Rabun Jauh, 近视); however, as mentioned earlier it all depends on what is causing the shortsightedness to get worse. The best thing to do is to schedule a Vision Evaluation (which different than usual eye exam ) with Vision specialist (Neuro-Developmental & Behavioral optometrist) ,Mr Stanley so he can determine the cause of the problem and the best treatment. The good news is that nearsightedness can be help.
Managing The Reason For The Progression Of Shortsightedness
To address the reason for the shortsightedness a program of vision therapy is often the best approach. Vision therapy re-trains the eyes, so they don’t have to work so hard when reading or doing other activities such as handwriting and working on the computer.
How Does Vision Therapy Work?
Typically vision therapy requires that you come to the office once a week and do a series of vision therapy activities , in addition to home therapy activities in between sessions. Most children and adults spend a lot of time on close up activities which make the eyes work harder (or cause the eye muscles to get tight), such as reading, writing, playing computer games, and using an ipad or iphone. This makes it necessary to relax your eyes daily, which means the home vision therapy must be done every day.
We find that patients with myopia (Shortsightedness, Rabun Jauh, 近视) who practice their eye exercises diligently get faster and better results than patients who do not diligently get the home vision therapy exercises done regularly.
What Is The Difference Between Ortho-K And Vision Therapy?
The main difference between myopia (Shortsightedness, Rabun Jauh, 近视) help with Ortho-K and vision therapy is that Ortho-K can usually stop the shortsightedness from getting worse. However, you will be dependent on Ortho-K in helping you stop the progression of shortsightedness for the rest of your life. If you also use vision therapy which help and solve the main cause of your short sightedness in getting worse, then you won’t need to continue using Ortho-K.
