Ortho-K: The Nighttime Contact

Ortho-K is the nighttime contact. Think of it as a retainer for your eyes at night, much like you would use a retainer at night for your teeth. An Ortho-K lens is a specially designed rigid lens that is to be worn while sleeping. Ortho-K is for those patients with vision problems, but embrace the idea of enjoying vision correction without having to wear eyeglasses or contact lenses. Specifically for those that are nearsighted. Orth-K is also a good option for those that are not good candidates for laser eye surgery. At See Life Family Vision Source, we offer you this advanced corneal reshaping technology - orthokeratology, or Orth-K for short. This is a non-surgical technique that can produce changes to the way your cornea reflects light. If this is something you are interested in, please give our office a call to schedule your consultation.
