Orthokeratology is a non-surgical, non-invasive and reversible process which reshapes (flattens) the cornea using rigid gas permeable contact lenses.
We offer ORTHO-K for myopic (short sighted) individuals with low degrees of astigmatism. It works by flattening the cornea reducing the focusing power of the eye.
The lenses are worn overnight. After the contact lenses are removed in the morning the cornea retains it flattened shape for all or part of the remainder of the day. A lens must be worn up to every night to maintain the flattening or the eye will revert back to its normal shape.
