Orthokeratology or Ortho-K is a non-surgical process, which reshapes the cornea while you sleep using specially designed oxygen permeable theraputic contact lenses. You remove the lenses when you awake and are able to go throughout the day without any other correction.
Ortho-K is designed for individuals with low to moderate myopia (nearsightedness up to -6.00 diopters) with or without astigmatism (up to -1.75 diopters). Most patiends expereince rapid improvement in the first few days and achieve optimum vision in 10-14 days.
