Ortho-K Lenses

Reshape your vision with Ortho-K Lenses

Ortho-K lenses, short for orthokeratology, are a type of specialized gas-permeable contact lens that are designed to reshape the cornea of the eye while you sleep. By doing so, they correct a variety of vision problems such as astigmatism, myopia, and hyperopia, allowing you to see clearly without the need for glasses or contact lenses during the day.

Why Ortho-K?

Benefits of Ortho-K Lenses

There are several benefits to using Ortho-K Lenses. Some of them include:

Improved Vision

Ortho-K lenses allow you to enjoy clear vision throughout the day without the need for glasses or contact lenses.


Unlike other forms of vision correction, Ortho-K lenses are non-surgical, making them a safe and effective option for people who are not good candidates for LASIK surgery.

Suitable for Children

Ortho-K lenses are particularly beneficial for children as they can slow down the progression of myopia and help manage other eye conditions.

Long-Lasting Results

While patients should wear their lenses every night for best results, the effects of Ortho-K lenses can often last for up to two full days.


The reshaping of the cornea is not painful, as it is caused by hydraulic forces rather than squeezing or "squishing."

Covered by FSA/HSA

Ortho-K lenses are eligible for reimbursement through flexible spending accounts (FSAs) and health savings accounts (HSAs).

Scleral Lenses

What are Scleral Lenses?

Scleral lenses are large diameter rigid gas permeable contact lenses that rest on the sclera, the white part of the eye, rather than on the cornea. The space between the scleral lens and the cornea creates a fluid-filled reservoir that helps to fill in any corneal irregularities and create a perfectly rounded surface, resulting in clear and comfortable vision.

Why Scleral Lenses?

Benefits of Scleral Lenses

There are several benefits to using Scleral Lenses. Some of them include:


Scleral lenses are designed to be comfortable, with most patients reporting that they are the most comfortable contact lens they have ever worn.

Clear Vision

Scleral lenses can provide clear and sharp vision, particularly for patients with corneal diseases, dystrophies, and degenerations, corneal scars and irregularities, and those who have had corneal transplant or refractive surgery.


Scleral lenses can be used to correct a variety of vision problems, including keratoconus, myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism.


Scleral lenses can provide protection for the cornea, particularly for patients with severe dry eye or other ocular surface conditions.


With proper care and maintenance, scleral lenses can provide long-lasting vision correction.

Customizable Fit

Scleral lenses are customizable to fit the unique curvature and shape of your eye, resulting in a more precise and comfortable fit compared to traditional contact lenses.

According to the National Health and Wellness Survey, 16.4 million adults in the United States have been diagnosed with Dry Eye. It's also believed that many more millions have Dry Eye but have yet to be properly diagnosed.

This issue is especially prevalent here in our home state, Colorado. Due to the high elevation and climate, Dry Eye is very common in Colorado. Dry Eye is a multifactorial disease meaning it can be caused by a variety of factors such as:

• Arthritis

• Diabetes

• Rosacea

• and more

Dry Eye can also be caused by various environmental factors such as aging, smoking, electronic screen usage, contact lens wear, and dryer climates like here in Colorado.

Symptoms of Dry Eye

The patients that we see who have Dry Eye typically have eye burning, irritation, redness, tearing, or that sandy feeling in their eyes. These symptoms are usually exacerbated after more time has been spent outdoors or with more electronic screen usage. Some experience dryness in the morning, and some have dryer eyes that progress throughout the day. Whatever it may be, these are distracting and can cause significant issues and pain down the road.

Carbon Valley Eye Care is specially trained in diagnosing and treating Dry Eye by utilizing the latest in both diagnostic equipment and treatment options.
