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.
There are several benefits to using Ortho-K Lenses. Some of them include:
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.
Ortho-K lenses are particularly beneficial for children as they can slow down the progression of myopia and help manage other eye conditions.
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."
Ortho-K lenses are eligible for reimbursement through flexible spending accounts (FSAs) and health savings accounts (HSAs).
