Orthokeratology For Adults | The Safer Alternative To LASIK
Orthokeratology (ortho-k) lenses are specialized custom contact lenses that reshape the cornea while you sleep, providing full-day, lens-free, clear vision. Ortho-k is a safe and surgery-free alternative to laser eye surgery, which is a good option for people who are not eligible for LASIK or who prefer a safer option. Ortho-k is ideal for those with nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism. After getting fitted by an optometrist, you can achieve 20/20 vision all day long by wearing the lenses overnight.
Compared to LASIK, ortho-k has almost no side effects and has been helping people see safely and comfortably since 1994. Ortho-k is an excellent option for those with very thin or irregular corneas, dry eyes, unstable vision, or high refractive error. Moreover, ortho-k is reversible, meaning the cornea will revert back to its original shape if you stop using the lenses. Ortho-k is also a cheaper option than corrective laser surgery and provides all-day clear vision, making it a great option for sports enthusiasts or athletes.
