Ortho-K (or Orthokeratology) is a simple yet breakthrough concept that’s effective for myopia control. It’s nonsurgical and reversible. Even kids as young as 7 years old can use it.
Here’s how it works: Your child wears specially designed rigid gas-permeable contact lenses that gently reshape the contour of their cornea (front surface of the eye) while they sleep. In the morning, your child takes off the lenses and experiences clear vision that lasts the whole day.
Parents no longer need to worry about their child losing or breaking their glasses. They can read, do crafts and hobbies, watch a movie, play in the park, engage in sport, swim, and do all the things they love to do without the need for spectacles or daytime contact lenses!
Ortho-K is one of the most effective treatment methods of myopia control in children, especially since laser corrective surgery isn’t an option for kids. Read why optometrists recommend Ortho-K.
