Ortho K Vision Correction

Ortho-K

Ortho K: 100% Safe – Affordable – Easy!

Correct Your Vision – Put Away Your Glasses!

Wear Contact Lenses AT NIGHT – and never wear eyeglasses again.  Orthokeratology (“Ortho K”) is the ONLY way to correct your vision without undergoing eye surgery.

Ortho K: Safe As Contact Lenses

Ortho K  is as safe as contact lenses.  Why spend thousands of dollars to permanently burn layers or cut layers off of your cornea as with Laser and Lasik eye surgery?   These types of eye surgeries have very real health risks associated with them. Ortho-K is the safer choice, without the risk of infections and/or permanent scar tissue on your Cornea.

 

 

Great for Kids & Sports

 

Ortho K can help children and athletes in very special ways!  For kids, it can prevent their vision from getting worse – or at least slow down the process.  For athletes, it enables you to have perfect vision – WITHOUT EYEGLASSES or CONTACT LENSES !

 

Ortho K Corrects your vision with surgeryThink of the cornea as the eye’s equivalent of a watch crystal. It is a clear, dome shaped structure that overlies the colored iris. Its tissue is most similar to clear, wet skin; and like skin it is very pliable. Because the cornea separates the eye from air and the rest of the outside world and because it has a curvature that bends light towards the back of the eye, it is responsible for most of the eye’s corrective power and contributes to various conditions such as nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and the blur of astigmatism.

 

When you choose Ortho-k a few key tests must be performed. Chief among these tests is the determination that your eyes are healthy. The Orthokeratologist will examine the retina and also the health of the outside of the eye. The other key procedure is the mapping of your cornea. To do this an instrument called a Topographer is used. Just like a topographical map of a camping area show hills, plains, and valleys; the topography of the eye shows your doctor exactly how your cornea is shaped. The information from your corneal mapping plus the size of your cornea and the prescription needed to correct your vision are all used to design the retainer lenses (corneal molds) needed to create the Ortho-k effect.
