Our doctors use a technique called Orthokeratology to help patients obtain vision correction by wearing custom fit contact lenses at night while sleeping.
Our doctors use the exact prescription and shape of the eye to create a custom fit contact lens for each patient, which the patient wears only at night while sleeping. The lens acts as a retainer to safely reshape the front of the eye. The lens gradually corrects vision so the patient does not have to wear contacts during the day. Not only does this type of lens correct your vision, it can help slow down the progression of myopia.
The technique is completely safe and 100% reversible. If a patient simply stops wearing the lens, then the front of the eye goes back to its original shape.
Great candidates for orthokeratology include:
- Children wanting to slow the progression of their eye prescription and/or wanting freedom from wearing daytime glasses or contact lenses
- Patients who want but are not candidates for laser eye surgery
- Patients (of any age!) suffering from dry eyes while wearing normal contact lenses
