Orthokeratology (Ortho – K)
Orthokeratology also called corneal molding, or Corneal Refractive Therapy, is a unique technology for overnight vision correction of Myopia (short sightedness). It is an easy non surgical process that uses custom fitted rigid contact lenses to reshape the cornea of your eye while you sleep. After you remove the lenses in the morning, the result is clear vision for the whole day, while at work, home, outdoors or playing sport.
The Ortho – K lens is specially designed oxygen permeable therapeutic contact lens, making it safe to wear at night. Wearing these contact lenses during sleep time, ensure that neither glasses nor contact lenses are required during the day. It does not cause permanent ocular changes, giving you ultimate control and flexibility of your vision correction unlike refractive eye surgery.
