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.

This woman literally saved my eyesight. I was cleaning the toilets at work one day when I got bowl cleaner in my eye. My boss called the owner and she opened just for us. Tested my eye and rinsed it until the ph was correct. Apparently, toilet bowl cleaner can literally blind you, I may have lost the sight on one eye if it wasn’t for this doctor.
