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 have received care Dr. Labiento-Smith since 2012 when I first moved to Sudbury. My wife and I have received great care. I ultimately got ICL surgery from Dr. Hu and was also very satisfied with his care. We now plan to take our daughters to Dr. Labiento-Smith as we have received such great care.
