Education Seminar

How to control the progression of nearsightedness and astigmatism 06/01

Topic: “How to control the progression of nearsightedness and astigmatism?”
Time: 10:30 AM – 11:30 AM
Where: Cafetiere
Presented by Dr. Ted T. Du, an eye doctor and surgeon in Flushing

Dr. Ted T. Du will speak about how to stop or slow down the progression of nearsightedness and astigmatism. If your children are getting new glasses every year, because their eyes get worse every year, Dr. Du will give you several suggestions on how to prevent that. Wearing CRT contact lens at night starting age 6-7 during sleep is the only clinically-proven way to control myopia and astigmatism. It’s cost-effective, FDA-approved, and more importantly, IT WORKS!

Dr.Du will also bring eyedrops and eye vitamins, all free to listeners.

Please click link below for the detail introduction to Dr.Du’s professional background.
