What is Orthokeratology?

July 1, 2022

Orthokeratology, or Ortho-k, is a specialised optometry service that uses specially designed and fitted contact lenses to temporarily reshape the front of your eye (the cornea). The aim is to improve vision. Most Ortho-k lenses are worn at night to reshape the cornea while you sleep. An advantage that Ortho-K has over laser eye surgery is that vision improvements are reversible. These improvements can be maintained if you keep wearing the lenses as directed by our optometrist.
