Is Gentle Molding™ right for you?

Most of us with vision issues are sick and tired of the usual way to help correct our sight: Glasses, daytime contacts, mono vision and more readers than you can remember. Surgical solutions have risks and disrupt visual performance which may not be right for you. If you are ready for an easier solution, Gentle Molding is the answer you have been looking for.

Some benefits to consider:

  • For both children and adults
  • Only wear them at night
  • Non-surgical therapeutic improvement of myopia, hyperopia, presbyopia and astigmatism
  • Free from surgical risk, convenient and doesn't disrupt visual performance
  • No cutting of the cornea
  • Effective results seen prior to age 18
  • No corneal scarring
  • No glare and flare at night
  • Several recent studies (Loric, Crayon) have shown therapeutic Gentle Molding designs are effective at controlling the axial length elongation of the eyeball found in progressive myopia in adolescents
  • Less expensive than refractive surgery in many cases
  • Lifestyle friendly
  • Occupational need for unaided vision may be met

Myopia
This occurs when the curvature of the cornea is too steep and/or the length of the eye is too long. As light rays pass through the steeper central cornea, they are refracted too much and come to a point of focus in front of the retina. This creates a blurred image. People with myopia experience blurred vision at a distance but may see well up close. Normal eyesight is achieved when light is redirected to strike the retina, causing a clear image to form. The curvature of the cornea and the axial length of the eyeball are responsible for myopia. Gentle Molding lenses improve myopia by reducing the curvature of the cornea. Myopia has been growing in incidence over the last century and is expected to involve half the world's population by the year 2020 (World Health Organization (WHO)). This has caused the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to view myopia as an epidemic. Myopia is a very real threat, causing serious sight-threatening conditions (retinal detachments, glaucoma) in otherwise healthy individuals. Several recent studies (LORIC, Crayon) have shown therapeutic Gentle Molding™ designs are effective at controlling the axial length elongation of the eyeball found in progressive myopia in adolescents. The earlier a child can begin Gentle Molding™ the better.

Hyperopia
This occurs when the curvature of the cornea is too flat and/or the length of the eye is too short. As the light rays pass through the flat cornea, they are refracted too little and come to a point of focus behind the retina. This creates a blurred image which can be adjusted by trying to focus the eye, much like what happens when we focus on images at close up viewing. This constant strain of trying to focus vision can result in headaches and underachievement in school and the workplace. Hyperopia can be accompanied by strabismus (crossed eye) or even amblyopia (lazy eye). Gentle Molding lenses are used to improve low to moderate cases of farsightedness by increasing the curvature of the cornea. With only night wear, most individuals suffering from farsightedness can now experience improved vision all day long.

Astigmatism
Many patients with hyperopia and myopia have some degree of astigmatism. This means that the cornea, rather then being completely round in shape like a ball, may be slightly oval and shaped more like the side view of a football. People with astigmatism experience blurred vision and sometimes distortion or tilting of images due to unequal bending of the rays of light entering their eye. In astigmatism, light entering the eye focuses in multiple areas rather then in one location. High degrees of astigmatism will cause blurred vision for both far and near objects. For example, the image observed on the backside of a spoon is quite distorted and demonstrates a very high degree of astigmatism. Astigmatism often causes eyestrain and headaches, as well as blurred vision. Due to recent technological advances in lens design, Gentle Molding therapeutic lenses can improve high degrees of astigmatism.

Reduce Dependency on Readers, Bifocals, Trifocals and Multifocals
The loss of near point due to age is called presbyopia or "old eyes." The condition is thought to be caused by the loss of tensile strength of the zonules, which control the lens (focus) of the eye. As baby boomers age, more of them will find the need for additional help at close work. Gentle Molding therapeutic progressive mold designs add a special progressive zone to the corneal re-shaping effect that can now reduce your dependency on glasses.
