Orthokeratology Treatment

If you dream of seeing clearly without the restriction of eyewear or the invasiveness of surgery, visit us at the office of Optical Outlets to find out if you’re a candidate for orthokeratology treatment. Ortho-k helps correct the curvature of the cornea while you sleep, eliminating the need for any corrective daytime eyewear. Our highly trained optometrist and professional team will customize treatment to meet your individual needs, prioritizing your comfort and convenience throughout your course of care.

Ortho-k lenses can effectively help children and adults who suffer from nearsightedness and astigmatism see more clearly. These lenses can correct refractive errors by gently reshaping the cornea, which is the outermost surface of the eye. When the cornea’s degree of curvature is too great relative to the length of the eyeball, or when the eyeball is too long relative to the focusing power of the cornea, nearsightedness can occur. Nearsightedness can be diagnosed with a visual acuity test during your comprehensive eye exam. If you experience difficulty seeing objects that are far away, such as road signs, movie screens or the blackboard at school, be sure to discuss these symptoms with our optometrist. To design your customized ortho-k lenses, we’ll determine the degree of correction needed and utilize advanced technology to map the exact curvature of your cornea. Ortho-k lenses are just like regular contacts, only you wear them while you sleep and take them out in the morning to enjoy clear vision throughout your day. Our team will take the time to teach you how to properly utilize and care for your lenses, for the most effective outcome of treatment.

Menu of Eyecare Services

At the office of Optical Outlets, our experienced eye doctor and team of eyecare professionals keep pace with advanced technology and treatment methods, to provide you with the highest quality care. As part of our comprehensive menu of eyecare services, we offer orthokeratology, which is a non-invasive option for correcting common refractive errors, such as myopia and astigmatism. Ortho-K treatment eliminates the need for daytime contact lenses or glasses, offering a comfortable and convenient alternative for improving the quality of your vision.

Ortho-k treatment works by gently reshaping the curvature of the cornea, using special gas-permeable lenses that are only worn at night. Ortho-k lenses can effectively treat mild to moderate cases of myopia and astigmatism as well as improve visual acuity for other types of refractive errors. To determine if ortho-k lenses are the right course of treatment for you, our highly skilled eye doctor will perform a comprehensive eye exam, which includes advanced diagnostic imaging of the cornea. After measuring the curvature of your cornea, your lenses will be customized to suit the unique shape of your eye, and the level of correction needed.

We will instruct you on how to correctly place and care for your ortho-k lenses to achieve the best outcome of care. Since the ortho-k lenses are only worn while you sleep, and removed upon waking in the morning, you can enjoy clear, crisp vision without the need for any corrective eyewear throughout the day. Ortho-k treatment is an excellent option for patients of ages. Because Ortho-k is completely reversible, other options in vision correction such as eyeglasses, contact lenses and LASIK procedures can always be explored.
