The process of Orthokeratology involves using specialized contact lenses to reshape your cornea. As your cornea changes shape, refractive errors that cause myopia/hyperopia/astigmatism are corrected.
Patients following our orthokeratology program wear their corrective lenses at night while they are sleeping. Because of this, they are generally not required to wear corrective lenses during the day.
Your cornea will undergo a period of rapid adaptation once you begin following the treatment program- typically within a few hours or days.
After 2-3 weeks your cornea will have completed its full adaptation. Ongoing treatment will ensure long-lasting vision correction.
When treatment is maintained, over 65% of patients achieve 20/20 eyesight again. The vast majority achieve at least 20/40, which is the minimum necessary for driving without the aid of corrective lenses like glasses or contacts.
Ask us about whether or not Orthokeratology is appropriate to treat your vision impairment. Our Optometrists will be happy to provide you a recommendation based on the current state of your eye health.
