Orthokeratology

Orthokeratology, or Ortho-K, is a non-surgical approach to correcting vision problems, such as myopia, through the use of specialized contact lenses. This method can help you see clearly and is a viable alternative to glasses, daytime contact lenses, or LASIK surgery. Before visiting Wichita Optometry, P.A. in Wichita, KS, to determine if Ortho-K is right for you, learn more about this treatment below:

Orthokeratology

What is Orthokeratology?

Orthokeratology involves wearing specially designed gas permeable contact lenses overnight, which temporarily reshape the cornea. The corneal reshaping allows patients to enjoy clear vision during the day without glasses or contact lenses. It is also particular beneficial for children and adults who want to be free from corrective lenses during the day for sports, swimming, or other activities.

Benefits of Ortho-K

Ortho-K can provide a variety of benefits. Some of these benefits include the following:

•           Freedom from Daytime Lenses: Ortho-K provides most patients with clear vision for the entire day without the need for glasses or contacts.

•           Non-Surgical: It's a non-invasive alternative to LASIK, making it a suitable option for those who are not candidates for refractive surgery.

•           Myopia Control: Ortho-K has been shown to slow down the progression of myopia in children, which is a significant benefit for long-term eye health.

Is Ortho-K Right for You?

Our optometrists can assess your suitability for Ortho-K based on factors like your refractive error, corneal health, and lifestyle. The best candidates for Ortho-K are individuals with mild to moderate myopia, with or without mild astigmatism. It's also essential to have healthy eyes without any significant corneal issues or severe dry eye syndrome. If we determine that Ortho-K is right for you, our eye doctors will create a personalized treatment plan, including fitting you with the right lenses and monitoring your progress.
