Orthokeratology (ortho-k), also known as corneal reshaping therapy, is a specialty contact lens fitting using a rigid gas permeable contact lenses worn overnight to change the corneal curvature, thus modifying the cornea’s refractive power. Combining its unique advantage of providing clear vision without glasses or contact lens during the day, orthokeratology has become one of the most popular and effective choices among children for myopic (nearsightedness) control.
Researches have shown that orthokeratology is safe and reversible procedure. Like other contact lens wear, orthokeratology has an increased risk of eye infection and inflammation. Through proper fitting of these custom designed lenses and thorough education on proper lens hygiene and care, we minimize those risks for our patients.
Beside orthokertology, which is the most effective way to control nearsightedness, we also offer offer Hoya Active BKS lenses, Zeiss MyoVision lenses, bifocal lenses and MiSight soft contact lens to control myopia.
