Commonly Used to Treat Myopia

At the office of Optical Outlets, we keep pace with the most advanced technology and treatment methods to protect your eye health and vision. As part of our ongoing commitment to provide the most advanced options in care, our office now offers orthokeratology treatment. Orthokeratology works to reshape your cornea while you sleep, so that you won’t have to worry about corrective eyewear throughout your day.

Orthokeratology corrects refractive errors by temporarily modifying the curvature of your cornea while you sleep. Orthokeratology is most commonly used to treat myopia, also known as nearsightedness, as well as astigmatism. The specialized gas-permeable lens temporarily flattens the cornea, while you sleep, to allow light to properly focus on the retina throughout the day. Each night, you simply wear your ortho-k lenses while you sleep, and then take then out in the morning to enjoy crisp, clear vision. With ortho-k, you won’t have to worry about wearing glasses or contacts during the day, making it a great option for athletes, children and people with dry eye conditions. Our experienced optometrist utilizes state-of-the-art diagnostic tools to comfortably assess the curvature of your cornea and to determine the level of vision correction that is needed. We will then customize your lenses to precisely meet your needs. Throughout your course of care, we’ll keep you informed and relaxed, addressing any questions related to your treatment. Your ortho-k lenses are comfortable, easy to care for and deliver prompt, effective results when you begin wearing them. If you are tired of the limitations of your glasses or contacts, visit our office to find out if you’re a candidate for for ortho-k. Our experienced team of professionals will provide a thorough eye examination to determine the best solutions in care.
