Orthokeratology, commonly referred to as ortho-k, is an FDA approved vision correction therapy in which a specialized custom contact lens is worn at night. These lenses gently and safely reshape the front surface of your eyes while you sleep. The lenses are removed in the morning and you can enjoy clear vision during the day without the need for glasses or contact lenses.

Ortho-k does not require surgery and is completely reversible. You simply stop wearing the ortho-k lenses at night and your vision gradually returns to what it was before you started the vision correction therapy. No cutting, no lasers, no surgical complications.

Ortho-k is perfect for those who have active lifestyles, play sports, people who experience discomfort in their contacts during the day due to allergies or dry eyes, or anyone who desires to be more independent from their glasses and/or contact lenses during the day.

Ortho-k advantages:

  • No daytime glasses or contacts
  • No surgery
  • Reversible
  • Safe for all ages

Additionally, Ortho-k is also being used to control the progression of myopia in children (nearsightedness).
