What is Orthokeratology?

Orthokeratology, also known as Ortho-K or Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT), is a non-surgical and reversible method for myopia control. This innovative treatment involves the use of specially designed contact lenses that gently reshape the cornea while you sleep, providing clear vision during the day without the need for glasses or contact lenses.

Why Choose Orthokeratology for Myopia Control?

Effective Myopia Management Ortho-K has been proven to effectively slow down the progression of myopia, particularly in children and adolescents. This can help reduce the risk of future eye health issues associated with high myopia.

Glasses and Contact Lens Independence Enjoy clear vision without the hassle of glasses or daytime contact lenses. By wearing Ortho-K lenses overnight, you gain the freedom to see clearly throughout the day without any corrective eyewear.

Safe and Reversible Orthokeratology is a safe and reversible process. If you decide to discontinue treatment, your eyes will gradually return to their original shape over time, making it a flexible option for vision correction.

Who Can Benefit from Orthokeratology?

Children and Teens Ortho-K is particularly beneficial for managing myopia progression during critical growth stages, helping to maintain better vision health as they grow.

Active Lifestyles Ideal for individuals involved in sports or other activities where glasses and traditional contact lenses may be cumbersome or impractical.

Contact Lens Wearers A great alternative for those who prefer a lens-free daytime experience, Ortho-K offers a convenient and comfortable solution.
