Orthokeratology (Corneal Refractive Therapy)

What is Orthokeratology?

Orthokeratology is a non-surgical process clinically developed to reshape the cornea (optical surface of the eye) while you sleep.

Is Orthokeratology new?

Contact lens corneal reshaping is not a new concept, but the technique has undergone many improvements. Now specialized contact lenses (corneal molds) can be utilized to reshape the surface of the eye and correct near sightedness and mild astigmatism, allowing you to be free of daytime contact lenses and glasses, gaining great vision without undergoing surgery! Recent developements in corneal surface mapping technology, computer guided lens lathes, and space age oxygen-breathing materials have brought new science to corneal reshaping.

With inherent risks of refractive eye surgery, consider orthokeratology as a safe and effective alternative to regaining natural vision.

Our doctors specialize in using advanced computer design software for a more accurate corneal molding experience.
