An Alternative Vision Correction Solution

Orthokeratology, also known as ortho-k, is a process that involves wearing rigid gas permeable contact lenses overnight while you sleep to gently change the shape of your cornea, reducing your dependence on glasses throughout the day.

Orho-k is an excellent option for most patients with mild to moderate myopia (nearsightedness).

If ortho-k lenses sound like a good option for you—schedule an appointment with us and sit down with our experts at Port Royal Eye Care!

Vision Correction Without Surgery

Ortho-k lenses are designed to reduce your dependence on contact lenses and glasses throughout the day’s busy events. Ortho-k lenses are inserted at night and removed in the morning, allowing for clear vision all day.

The ortho-k process is convenient because you can still play your favorite sports and get to the gym without worrying about your glasses and contact lenses.

For the best results, it’s essential to wear your ortho-k lenses every night, or your prescription will begin to regress to its previous state.

The Orthokeratology Process

The first step in the orthokeratology process is to visit us for a comprehensive eye exam. During the exam, our team will map and measure the surface of your cornea using a corneal topographer to design a personalized lens for your eye’s specific measurements.

Ortho-k is an excellent option for most people with mild to moderate myopia or hyperopia. Patients who are seeking an alternative to glasses but do not qualify for laser vision correction can look into ortho-k lenses as a solution.
