What Is Orthokeratology?
Orthokeratology (Ortho-K) is another successful method of myopia control. Ortho-K is a hard lens designed to change the shape of the cornea and correct the near-sightedness while a patient sleeps. The patient then does not require glasses or contact lenses during the day.
The cornea re-shaping changes the way light focuses in the back of the eye and greatly slows Myopia progression in a large group of patients. There is no age minimum for treatment.

I visited Sudbury Eye Care for the first time this morning and had a fantastic experience. There was trouble with my insurance company and Sudbury Eye Care took the liberty to contact the company directly and make sure everything was correct. Dr. Labiento Smith has a great practice and I highly reccomend to anyone looking for an Eye Care Professional. It’s always nice to stay/support a local business and even better when you receive great service!
