A Safe, Revolutionary Method of Vision Correction
Orthokeratology (Ortho-K) is a non-surgical vision improvement therapy that controls nearsightedness and astigmatism through the use of specially designed gas permeable contact lenses (RGP) that are specially to gently reshape the curvature of the eye to improve vision.
What are the benefits of Ortho-K?
Safe Alternative to LASIK
Patients seeking a safe alternative to LASIK vision correction surgery, or those who have worn 30-day continuous wear soft contacts who wish they didn’t have to wear contacts throughout the day, may be candidates for this revolutionary alternative.
One of many benefits of Vision Shaping Treatmentâ„¢ over LASIK is that Vision Shaping Treatmentâ„¢ is reversible. You have not surgically changed the surface of the cornea and if the lenses are no longer worn, your vision will return to the way it was before you used VST.
