WHY ORTHOKERATOLOGY WORKS FOR SO MANY

You have myopia or another correctable vision problem, and you're sick of wearing glasses or contacts during the day. Many people aren't ready for LASIK surgery but would like an option that corrects vision without daily contacts and glasses. That's where orthokeratology comes in. Get clear vision during the day by correcting your vision each night while you sleep.

WHAT IS ORTHOKERATOLOGY?

Orthokeratology is a vision correction process involving wearing special lenses while you're asleep. These lenses reshape your cornea at night, resulting in clear vision without contacts or glasses during the day. Though a number of factors contribute to vision problems, orthokeratology corrects the pliable cornea, which is enough to address many vision issues and provide clear vision to patients.

You may have heard orthokeratology referred to as Paragon CRT, or Paragon Corneal Refractive Therapy. The Paragon method is slightly different, because Paragon uses their own lens type and fitting process to reshape the cornea. The result is extremely similar; it is technically a different procedure, however.

WHO DOES ORTHOKERATOLOGY WORK BEST FOR?

Individuals with nearsightedness and mild astigmatism, are all candidates for orthokeratology. Your eye doctor will determine if you're a good fit for orthokeratology by evaluating the degree of your vision problems, the health of your eye, and a topographical map of your cornea. Orthokeratology is most effective correcting myopia at up to -6.00 diopters. Your eye doctor will determine whether you're a good candidate for orthokeratology.

WHEN CAN YOU EXPECT RESULTS?

Beginning orthokeratology is a complex process. After your first night of wearing the lenses, your eye doctor will examine you again to understand how the lenses are working for and with your eyes. Adjustments may need to happen, depending on the results. You might have to try out different lenses before getting a result as close to 20/20 as possible. Not everyone achieves 20/20 vision with orthokeratology, but most achieve at least 20/40, which is what you need to legally drive in the United States.

Be aware that it can take up to two weeks of wearing orthokeratology lenses at night before you see maximum results, depending on how difficult it is to correct your vision. In the meantime, your eye doctor can assist you with temporary vision correction for daily wear.

DOES THE PROCESS HAVE ANY SAFETY ISSUES?

Putting foreign objects into the eye always carries risks. With orthokeratology, eye infection is the most common problem. Proper hygiene and care, just like with regular contact lenses, is essential with orthokeratology lenses. Be sure to ask your eye doctor about any specific risks, and visit your doctor as soon as you feel any eye pain or notice differences in your eyes.

Does having clear vision all day without worrying about contacts or glasses sound good to you? Orthokeratology looks like the next vision correction avenue to explore. Talk to your eye doctor to discover if you're a candidate for orthokeratology. A simpler way to clearer vision could be just around the corner for you.
