Orthokeratology Corneal Reshaping
Orthokeratology is an exciting technology that corrects your vision while you sleep by gently changing the shape of your cornea so you can see clearly during the day without contact lenses, glasses, or surgery. Ortho-K is FDA approved, and it is safe for children and adults.
Ortho-K is non-surgical and completely reversible. Our patients enjoy the benefits of overnight vision shaping every day–at school, at home, for swimming, dancing, acting, and active sports. Ortho-K, also called Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT) and Vision Shaping Treatment (VST), uses gentle molding of the cornea while you sleep, so that you can enjoy clear vision all day without wearing glasses or contact lenses. Say good bye to dry, red eyes due to contact lenses. Enjoy surfing, swimming, diving, and flying. Imagine, no glasses or contacts during your day – just clear vision!
Orthokeratology can slow and, in some cases, stop nearsightedness from getting worse. This is a huge long-term health benefit, as it reduces the risk of sight threatening diseases that can occur with high myopia such as glaucoma, retinal detachment, and myopic degeneration.
