Ortho-k Lenses

Orthokeratology (Ortho-k) Lenses
Ortho-k lenses are specially designed, rigid, gas permeable contacts worn overnight. These lenses are customized to meet the needs of each patient and are FDA-approved for overnight wear. They non-surgically reshape the cornea over 6-8 hours while sleeping. In the morning, the lenses are removed and the temporary correction is good enough so patients can enjoy clear vision during the day without corrective glasses or contact lenses. To ensure the best outcome, patients are monitored at 1 day, 1 week and 1 month after initial evaluation and fitting.


Ortho-K: Corneal Reshaping - Innovative Eye Care

Ortho-k lenses are perfect for patients who:
  • Want a lens-free lifestyle during the day
  • Find soft contacts too irritating
  • Are too young for LASIK or are not a LASIK candidate
