EDS patients are not candidates for surgical correction (such as LASIK) for myopia (near-sightedness), astigmatism or hyperopia (far-sightedness). Ortho-K is a great option and can even slow or halt the progression of near-sightedness in children. The patients wear a lens only at night-time and are free of contacts or glasses during the day. Yes, this is my hubby speaking on this video.:) It’s awesome to have options, when we are often not candidates for surgeries as EDS patients.
