Orthokeratology

Orthokeratology

Orthokeratology lenses are contact lenses that people sleep in at night. They gently and temporarily re-shape the cornea so that most wearers do not need to wear any glasses or contact lenses during the day. There are two categories of people who generally get fit for orthokeratology lenses.

Adults: They may want these lenses as an alternative to LASIK or wearing glasses or daytime contact lenses.

Children: Parents may find these lenses appealing because studies show they can slow the progression of myopia (nearsightedness) 50% or more. An added bonus of these lenses for children participating in sports is that they will likely not need to wear glasses or daytime contact lenses.

A consultation at our office is a great way to find out if these lenses are right for you or your child. We will need your records sent from your last eye examination at least 48 hours prior to your appointment with us.
