Ortho-k involves temporarily reshaping the cornea through the use of specialized contact lenses, which are designed to be worn while sleeping. By reshaping the eye during sleep, this technique allows us to treat myopia during the day. No daytime contact lens wear needed!
Ortho-k is an exciting technique for myopia control. The use of Ortho-K contact lenses has repeatedly been proven to slow the elongation of the wearers eyes, slowing the normal progression of myopia (nearsightedness) from year to year.
