Ortho-K Lens

Do you need vision correction but find wearing glasses or contacts is cumbersome during the day? If you’d like to enjoy vision correction without wearing corrective lenses while you work and participate in recreational activities, Ortho-K may be for you. Orthokeratology lenses are special rigid contact lenses that reshape your cornea while you sleep, giving you clear vision during the day.

Orthokeratology Contact Lenses

Orthokeratology contact lenses are great for individuals who find wearing corrective lenses during the day cumbersome but are not ready for LASIK or PRK eye surgery to correct their vision. Ortho-K lenses work by reshaping the cornea at night, which helps light focus correctly on the retina. When light is focused correctly on the back of the eye, visual acuity increases, and many individuals experience 20/20 or better vision after wearing corneal reshaping lenses at night.

Using Corneal Reshaping Lenses

Corneal reshaping lenses are rigid contact lenses, which are also called gas permeable lenses. These lenses fit snugly against the relatively soft and flexible cornea. Over the course of the night while you sleep, your cornea will slowly conform to the shape of the lens. In the morning, you will remove the lenses, clean them and put them in their cases before going about your day. You will not need another form of vision correction as long as you wear your new lenses nightly. If you ever want to go back to wearing traditional glasses or contacts, all you have to do is stop wearing your orthokeratology lenses.
