Orthokeratology, commonly known as Ortho-K, is a treatment using custom contact lenses to reshape the cornea and is proven effective in correcting vision conditions like myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. The orthok contact lenses are worn overnight and help to correct refraction vision through gentle reshaping of the the surface of the eye.
Typically, our patients will see an immediate improvement after one night of use. Expect maximum vision correction in about two weeks. The treatment temporarily reshapes the cornea, so without consistent use, the effects will wear off. Wearing the contact lenses every night will provide the best results.
Initially, the contacts will take a little getting used to, but after a few nights, the contacts will feel quite natural. The contacts lenses can last for over a year with proper care, however, we may improve the prescription with our patients over time.
