Orthokeratology (Ortho-K) is an alternative to laser vision correction in patients who wish to be independent of their daytime glasses and contact lenses. Also referred to as Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT) and Corneal Reshaping, this advanced technology provides freedom from glasses and contacts all day without the need for surgical intervention.
Ortho-K utilizes specially designed therapeutic contact lenses that gently and temporarily reshape the cornea while you sleep. Due to their high oxygen permeability, these contact lenses have been proven to be safe and effective for patients of all ages, including children. Ortho-K is a non-invasive, non-surgical process to reshape the cornea while sleeping.
