Orthokeratology, or Ortho-K, corrects an individual’s vision by wearing custom contact lenses while the patient sleeps. The contact lenses are made of a rigid gas permeable (hard) material and due to their unique curvature, reshape the corneas overnight.
Optimum vision usually occurs after 1-2 weeks of wearing the contact lenses each night and continued wear maintains excellent vision throughout the day without the need for glasses or soft contact lenses. Studies have proven that this is a safe non-surgical alternative for nearsighted patients. Both children and adults can benefit from the visual freedom that Ortho-K offers.
Because of the specialized fitting procedure, our office uses only FDA approved Orthokeratology custom contact lenses and our Optometrist, Dr. Margret Ritterbusch, has had extensive training and experience.
