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.
