Who Is a Candidate for Ortho-k?

(972) 442-2250

Are You Considering Ortho-k Lenses?

Orthokeratology, often called ortho-k, is a non-surgical vision correction method that has gained popularity in recent years. It involves the use of specially designed gas-permeable contact lenses to temporarily reshape the cornea, thereby providing clear vision throughout the day without the need for eyeglasses or standard contact lenses. This revolutionary approach has shown promise in myopia management and has become preferable for those seeking independence from daytime visual aids.

However, ortho-k might not be suitable for everyone. The effectiveness and safety of this treatment rely on several factors, including your eye health, prescription, and lifestyle.

Ortho-k and Myopia: A Clear Solution for Nearsightedness

Ortho-k is primarily designed to correct nearsightedness, also known as myopia. You could be a potential candidate for this treatment if you have myopia and find seeing objects at a distance challenging. Ortho-k lenses can effectively reduce this condition, giving you clear vision throughout the day.

However, it's important to note that ortho-k is most effective for people with mild to moderate myopia. If a prescription falls within this range, there's a higher likelihood of achieving satisfactory results with ortho-k lenses. These lenses may be less effective for individuals with high levels of myopia or other complex vision problems.

  • Contact Lens Intolerance or Discomfort

    Ortho-k may be a suitable alternative if you've experienced discomfort or intolerance with standard contact lenses. These specially designed lenses are worn overnight while you sleep, so you don't have to worry about daytime discomfort or dryness often associated with traditional contact lenses.

  • Active Lifestyles and Sports Enthusiasts

    Ortho-k is an excellent option for individuals with active lifestyles or athletes. You can enjoy your favorite sports activities with unhindered vision without needing glasses or daytime contact lenses. Athletes and outdoor enthusiasts often find ortho-k lenses particularly convenient.

  • Children and Adolescents

    Ortho-k can be a valuable option for children and adolescents with myopia. Slowing myopia's progression during these formative years can have long-term benefits for eye health. If your child has myopia, speak to your Modern Eye Care eye doctor about ortho-k as a potential treatment option.

  • Daily Lens Care and Compliance

    Successful ortho-k treatment requires a commitment to daily lens care and compliance with your eye care professional's recommendations. You'll need to clean, store the lenses correctly, and follow the prescribed wearing schedule.

Modern Eye Care is a great optometrist office. The staff is so nice and getting an appointment was s... mooth and easy. The technology the office uses was cool, they are able to take a photo of the back of the eye and no puff of air! Dr. Gandhi is thorough and explained things to me in ways that made sense. My glasses and prescription sunglasses were actually less than I’m used to paying at LensCrafters and Visionworks which I did not expect from a doctor’s office.

This place is great. The doctor is amazing too! I was getting my eye examination every year in diffe... rent commercial branches and they always gave generic examinations, but this doctor took his time to see my eyes and found I had some type of allergic reaction and that was why I got dry eyes and other symptoms and diligently gave me the reason and solution to handle it. Plus, eyeglasses’ lens and so high quality. This is the place forget about everything else.
