Among the many different vision therapies and treatments that we offer, Ortho-K is quickly becoming one of the most popular. Formally known as orthokeratology, which means reshaping the cornea, Ortho-K is a non-surgical treatment that can correct your vision through the use of comfortable, customized lenses that you can wear while you sleep. With over 17 years providing successful orthokeratology treatments, Dr. Brooks examines the procedure by answering a few common questions about Ortho-K lenses.
For your vision to be as clear as possible, light has to hit your retinas directly, with exact precision. If the light is off by even a fraction of a millimeter, then the images you see will be blurry. Ortho-K, also known as orthokeratology (or corneal reshaping) is the gentle, non-surgical process of reshaping the cornea to ensure that light hits the retina more accurately. Using comfortable corrective lenses that can be worn at night, Ortho-K treatment can help children and adults enjoy clearer vision in as little as two weeks, without the need for contact lenses, glasses, or eye surgery.
