Ortho-K is a non surgical method of reshaping the cornea to provide clear vision. It is also one of the most proven and effective methods of myopia (short-sightedness) control available in the world today.
How it works?
The patient wears a special contact lens while sleeping at night. This contact lens is designed in such a way that it will use the tears of the patient to gently reshape the cornea while the patient is sleeping.
When the patient wakes up in the morning, he/she will remove the contact lenses and be able to enjoy clear vision for the rest of the day.
Clear vision is achieved when the shape of the cornea is altered.
Recommended for those who:
- Want to see clearly without any daytime glasses or contact lenses
- Want to reduce eye power or slow down power increment
- Are too young to undergo laser refractive surgery
- Want an alternative to refractive surgery
