Many patients come to us every day struggling to get through their daily lives with their current choice of vision correction. Some have eyeglasses that do not sit properly on their face or feel that their peripheral vision is hindered by the frames. While contact users may find the lenses uncomfortable or have them fall out at inconvenient times. For these patients, we are pleased to offer orthokeratology, or Ortho-K, a revolutionary way to help you see clearly throughout the day without having to wear glasses or contacts and without having to get laser eye surgery.
Myopia has become an increasing epidemic throughout the world. While it may seem like a common condition, it is actually associated with several serious eye diseases that can threaten one’s ability to see. Increased screentime in our society has caused myopic progression ranging from young children to adults at high levels. Ortho-K is a revolutionary way to help you see clearly throughout the day without having to wear glasses or contacts while slowing down or halting myopic progression. This reduction can help reduce ones risk of retinal tears, glaucoma, and myopic maculopathy.
