Orthokeratology (Ortho-K) is a FDA approved method of treating and correcting nearsightedness, also known as myopia.
Ortho-K corneal refractive treatment uses specially designed highly oxygen permeable contact lenses to gently reshape your corneas while you sleep. After removing the lenses in the morning, your vision is generally correct to 20/20 or better without the need for day time contact lenses or glasses. This effect lasts all day in most cases and may last for several days depending on your prescription and other factors. Several different types of Ortho-K lenses are available and the specific lens you are in will be determined by Dr. Simms after your initial visit. Our Ortho-K program, no matter which lens style you are in is referred to as Dream Vision Ortho-K.
