Ortho K / Orthokeratology

Ortho K / Orthokeratology

  • Are you tired of wearing prescription glasses or contact lenses, but are not quite ready for LASIK?

  • Are you unable to wear contact lenses due to dry eyes or allergy sensitivities?

  • Do you feel glasses or contact lenses inhibit your or your child's ability to enjoy certain activities, such as swimming, hiking, skiing, or sports?

  • Does your child’s prescription change significantly each year?

  • Does your child have trouble handling or wearing contact lenses?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, OrthoKeratology may be the solution for you. OrthoKeratology – also referred to as Ortho-K – is a revolutionary and non-surgical procedure that involves fitting specially designed contact lenses that temporarily reshape the cornea during sleep, which allows you to function without the need for glasses or contacts during the day. They are essentially similar to “dental braces”, but for the eyes.

These specific Ortho-K contact lenses are designed to be used at bedtime, and removed upon awakening. Dr. Page also utilizes Acuvue Abiliti by Johnson & Johnson, which are Ortho-K lenses that are FDA-approved for Myopia Control and Management in children. Please contact us for more information.
