What is Orthokeratology?

Orthokeratology (Ortho-K) is the fitting of a custom-designed hard contact lens that is worn overnight. The lenses gently reshape the cornea (front surface of the eye) while the wearer is asleep. After removing the lenses, the wearer will be able to see clearly during the day without the need for spectacles or soft contact lenses.

Ortho-K lenses are mainly fitted to correct refractive errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Ortho-K lenses are also fitted to slow the progression of childhood myopia.

The corneal reshaping effect is reversible. This means that Ortho-K wearers can discontinue lens wear at any time and can wear spectacles or soft contact lenses when the refractive error returns.

Who is suitable for Ortho-K lenses?

Good candidates for Ortho-K lenses include individuals who want to be spectacles-free, play contact or water sports, and have mild to moderate refractive error.

At Lifetime Vision Care, our optometrists will use a topographer to map the shape of the front surface of the eye. And thereafter, a tailor-made Ortho-K lenses can then be fitted. The topographer is also used to monitor the change in corneal shape when the Ortho-K lenses are worn overnight.
