Orthokeratology… but let’s all agree to call it “Ortho-K”… It’s much easier!
WHAT IS IT?
In a nutshell, Ortho-K is a safe, non-surgical alternative to laser surgery. With the use of custom, oxygen-permeable contact lenses worn at night while you sleep, you can have clear vision for the whole next day without the use of any conventional eyewear!
Ortho-k is also one of the strategies used in our Myopic Control Program for children!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
But— HOW does it work? It’s simple, really. When you wear your ortho-K lenses at night, they reshape your corneal surface and correct your vision! Take them out in the morning, and experience clear vision for the rest of the day! Cool, right?
WHO DOES IT?
Dr. Corina Buettner is the head of Ortho-K services at both Nuvo locations. Want to know a little more about her? We don’t blame you; she’s pretty awesome.
