Ortho-K (short for Orthokeratology) is a non-surgical
procedure using specially designed contact lenses to gently
reshape the curvature of the eye to improve vision.
Corneal Reshaping While You Sleep
This is a revolutionary non-surgical procedure that eliminates the need for glasses or daytime contact lenses. It improves vision by gently reshaping your eye WHILE YOU SLEEP using specially designed therapeutic contact lenses. You just put the specially fitted lenses in at bedtime, and when you awake, you will have clear, sharp, natural vision for your waking hours.
We will map the shape of your corneas precisely, using an instrument called a topographer, and then fabricate the special contact lenses. The lenses perform a subtle corneal reshaping as you sleep, meaning that you can take them out the next morning and enjoy clear vision.
By wearing them regularly at night, you can maintain your clarity of vision for as long as you decide to continue using them. If you decide to use another form of vision correction, simply stop wearing the Ortho-K lenses and your corneas will assume their previous shape once again. This is a great alternative to LASIK and has been proven to slow myopia progression. Talk to our knowledgeable staff to see whether Ortho-K makes sense for you.
