What is Orthokeratogy

Are you fed up of wearing glasses or contact lenses throughout the day? Are you worried about your child’s vision worsening? You may want to consider Orthokeratology.

Orthokeratology (Ortho-K for short), is a contact lens that is worn at night. This advanced contact lens reshapes the front of the eye (cornea) to provide clear vision during the day without wearing glasses or contact lenses. Using this vision shaping technique, properly selected patients can go through the day wearing no correction and enjoy excellent visual acuity.

There are also studies which show Ortho K can slow down the progression of myopia (short-sightedness).
