Michelle Beach is optometrist director at Park Vision in Nottingham and started providing myopia management services two years ago.
Beach says she was slow to use orthokeratology (ortho-k) on children at first but added it to the practice’s offering a year ago after having a conversation with Menicon.
‘When we started myopia management, ortho-k wasn’t the first thing that we did. I’m a massive believer in kids wearing contact lenses because I’m passionate about sport. From a sports vision perspective, your reaction time, your ability to see the ball, or hanging upside down on a tree, all of that is a lot harder in glasses.
