What Is Ortho-K?
ORTHO-K LENSES ARE PRESCRIBED FOR TWO PURPOSES:
Ortho-k lenses are also called “corneal reshaping contact lenses” or “overnight contact lenses to correct or control myopia.”
How Long Does The Ortho-K Effect Last?
Which Vision Problems Can Ortho-K Correct?
Ortho-k also can correct lesser degrees of astigmatism, hyperopia and presbyopia.
WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR ORTHOKERATOLOGY?
Most people with mild to moderate myopia (with or without mild astigmatism) are good candidates for ortho-k.
Because the corneal reshaping effect is temporary, little risk is involved, and you can discontinue wearing the lenses at any time — provided you are willing to start wearing glasses or contacts again when your myopia returns!
Children and young adults who want to be glasses-free but are too young for LASIK or are not good candidates for refractive surgery for other reasons (dry eyes, for example) often are good candidates for ortho-k. People who participate in contact sports or work in dusty environments that can pose problems for contact lens wear also can be good candidates.
