Orthokeratology or Ortho-K
Ortho-K specialized rigid lenses gently reshape the front of the cornea while you sleep. The lenses are removed in the morning, eliminating nearsightedness and astigmatism and retaining improved visual quality throughout the day. Most of the vision improvements comes after the first night of wear and can remain stable all day after just two weeks of overnight wear. Ortho-K is an important part of our aggressive myopia control program. By starting early when children first start showing a prescription we may be able to reduce much of the nearsightedness they may eventually encounter. We use the only FDA approved method and material: Paragon CRT.
Vision Therapy or VT
