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.

Dr. L. As I call her is the best around! I have a very difficult prescription and schedule. She not only figured out my prescription which has two levels but, she also spent a long time trying to assist me in wearing contacts. Dr Smith is very accommodating. I am never rushed when I am there. I also have great frames thanks to her as well! Dr L does both pediatric and adult eye care and is well worth the trip if you aren’t from Sudbury !!! Thank you Dr L for the great care!!
