Ortho-k

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!

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. As a Nuvo leader, her investments in our Vision have cultivated an ever-growing, positive reputation amongst the Ottawa community, and she sets herself apart by being one of the only eye doctors to provide Orthokeratology services in the Ottawa Region.

WHAT CAN IT HELP WITH?

Ortho-k is also one of the strategies used in our Myopic Control Program for children! Find out more about our Myopic Control Program for kids here.
