Ortho-K gently & painlessly changes the shape of the cornea while you sleep.
The process begins with the design of custom contact lenses. Software analysis of the design then converts this information into a contact lens created with multiple complex curves which have been matched to the unique shape of your cornea (similar to your fingerprint).
The pressure of this lens on the tear liquid (gentle and painless) behind the Ortho-K lens causes the cornea to change from its original shape to a newly designed and preferred contour which results in clear eyesight without glasses or contacts while you’re awake.
OrthoK is ideal for both children and adults, nearsighted, farsighted, and astigmatic patients, as well as those over 40 who find they need help for everyday reading (presbyopia) but don’t want to wear reading glasses.
