Ortho K - Vikash Optometrist

Orthokeratology or ortho-k is the use of specially designed contact lenses to temporarily reshape the cornea to improve and correct your vision.

It’s like orthodontics for your eyes and the treatment is often compared to dental braces.

Simply Put, The Lenses Work As You Sleep And During The Day You Have No Need For Spectacle Or Contact Lens Use!

Who can use Orthokerathology lenses:

  • Ortho k lenses are ideal for adults and children
  • If you want freedom from spectacles and contact lenses
  • If laser corrective surgery is not an option
  • People who play sport especially contact sports and water sports
  • Management of progressive myopia
  • People working in dusty or dirty environments
  • Mild dry eyes where this interferes with the use of soft contact lenses


Prescription guidelines for Ortho Kerathology use

Ortho K lenses can be fitted with the following prescriptions:

-1.00D to -8.00D of myopia

+1.00D to +4.00D of hyperopia

Up to -4.00D of astigmatism

We use Ortho-k lenses for myopia (short sighted) correction and management.
