Orthokeratology is a modern treatment, which uses gas permeable contact lenses to reshape the cornea temporarily. The contact lenses are worn overnight and removed upon awakening. This results in decreased nearsightedness and produces clear and comfortable vision over the course of the day without wearing glasses or conventional contact lenses.
Ortho-k is ideal for patients who suffer from dry eye with soft contact lenses. Ortho-K lenses are also great for athletes and swimmers who do not want their glasses or contacts to affect their performance. The treatment can be used on patients of any age and some studies have shown the treatment to decrease the progression of nearsightedness in children.
