Ortho-K

Orthokeratology (Ortho-K) is also known as corneal reshaping therapy.

The patient will wear a contact lens at night, the lens reshapes the front of the eye and then in the morning they remove the lens and get to see all day without any glasses.

It’s definitely amazing to be free of glasses without surgery. This treatment is only available for a small range of prescriptions. Generally for people with mild to moderate near-sightedness and only a slight amount of astigmatism.

In order to maintain clear vision a patient has to continue to sleep in the lenses indefinitely. Because of this we check patients 1 day after sleeping in the lenses, 1 week, and at 1 month. The lenses are replaced and refitted once a year.
