Orthokeratology (Ortho-K)

 

If you've imagined enjoying your daytime activities without the inconvenience of glasses or contact lenses, but have concerns about corrective refractive surgery such as LASIK, or have been told you are not a good candidate for the surgery, then you  definitely want to find out more about Orthokeratology.
 
In addition to eliminating the need for contact lenses or eye glasses, Ortho-K also retards the progression of myopia in children or teenagers so progressively thicker glasses may not be need later in life.   


Most people are able to see better without
correction within 2-5 days!

  

How Ortho-K Works

Simply wear the custom designed Ortho-K lenses every night (or for some every other night) and remove them in the morning. While you sleep, the lenses gently reshape your cornea to correct and improve near-sightedness (up to -5.00) and astigmatism (up to -1.25). Within two to five days most people are able to enjoy functional daytime visual activity without correction. There are several individual factors that may influence the speed and degree of corneal molding so perfect success cannot be guaranteed.

 

The Process

A comprehensive eye examination and topographical corneal maps and measurements must be performed to determine if you are a good candidate for Ortho-K. The fee for the OrthoK program includes the lenses necessary to reach the final lens design and one year of OrthoK related follow-up care.  Once the doctor has designed the initial set of lenses, a dispensing visit is set up.  At this visit, the doctor will provide instruction and training in how to handle, care for, insert and remove the orthoK lenses.  Lens fit, vision and corneal maps are evaluated at every visit.
