Orthokeratology

Clear vision without surgery, glasses, or daytime contacts.

What if you could correct your eyesight and reduce your dependence on corrective lenses, all while you sleep?

It may sound impossible. But for many, it's a reality with orthokeratology (ortho-k).

What is orthokeratology?

Ortho-k uses specially designed, gas permeable retainer lenses to temporarily reshape your cornea while you sleep.

The result is clear vision when you wake up and remove the lenses the following day. And that effect should last throughout the day.

The change in the shape of the cornea, as well as the vision correction you experience, will revert when you stop using the lenses.

What visual problems can ortho-k correct?

Ortho-k is most commonly used to temporarily correct myopia (nearsightedness) and astigmatism.

In some cases, it can be used to correct lesser degrees of farsightedness.

Am I a good candidate for ortho-k?

Only your eye care provider can answer that question.

However, most people with mild to moderate myopia are good candidates.

The treatment is highly preferred for people who have issues wearing eyeglasses or contact lenses. It is also a great option for adults who do not want to have, or don't qualify, for laser vision correction.
