Ortho-K is a non-surgical procedure that eliminates the need for glasses or contact lenses during the day.
A specially designed contact lens is worn while you sleep and removed upon awakening, similar to a dental retainer. It gently reshapes the front surface of the eye, allowing you to see during the day without glasses or contacts. Ortho-K works well for nearsighted prescriptions and low amounts of astigmatism.
Ortho-K lenses have been shown to slow down the rate of change of a child’s nearsighted prescription by up to 50-60%. We often use Ortho-K in our myopia control clinic.
The FDA approved Ortho-K in 2002 with no age restriction and no adverse events reported in a clinical study of 410 eyes.
For more information about Ortho–K, or to see if you or your child might benefit from Ortho–K therapy, request an appointment today.
