Ortho-K is short for Orthokeratology, which is an alternative procedure for LASIK. This non-surgical procedure improves vision by gently reshaping the front surface of the eye while you sleep using specially designed contact lenses. You just put the lenses in before bed and while you sleep and when you wake you have a crisper clearer vision. This effective treatment can correct farsightedness, nearsightedness, astigmatism, and Presbyopia safely. It’s a great alternative to LASIK for patients who don’t want to risk surgery.
