Treatment of Myopia and Astigmatism without Glasses or Surgery

With the increase in digital screens and stimuli, myopia has reached epidemic levels in the world. The possibility of myopia, especially in children, is increasing rapidly. It can be much easier to detect and treat eye defects at an early age. With early diagnosis and treatment, we can often overcome the problem by using glasses for a certain period of time. However, families may experience problems for various reasons such as children's antipathy towards glasses, aesthetic concerns and inability to establish the habit of using them.

Since myopia and astigmatism are associated with deterioration in the structure of the cornea, this suppression is aimed at correcting the deterioration in the cornea. The main purpose of the Sleep Lens is to prevent the progression of eye defects by reshaping the cornea.
