Orthokeratology Near Buford GA


Love your eyes, love your future

What is Orthokeratology?

Some of your eye troubles could be relieved through orthokeratology. What is orthokeratology? Here’s how ortho-k works:

  • Special lenses are fitted to your eye.
  • You wear these lenses while you’re sleeping.
  • The lenses temporarily reshape the cornea of your eye.
  • You take out the lenses in the morning.
  • You enjoy the reduction in your eye problems — such as myopia, hyperopia, or astigmatism.

Our optometrists use orthokeratology to help aid a number of different eye conditions. This amazing technology improves your vision without the trouble of daytime solutions. If you think that orthokeratology might be a solution for you, then give us a call!

How Orthokeratology Works

Orthokeratology is a simple, non-invasive, and painless vision correction procedure. During the assessment, an eye doctor will map out and measure your corneas with a device that doesn’t touch your eyes. With the results of your exam, your doctor designs corrective lenses that will be worn while you sleep. These gas-permeable (GP) contact lenses are safe and comfortable to wear overnight, working to correct your vision with no changes to your daily life. 

How Long Ortho-K Takes To Work

It may take at least a couple of weeks of wearing your orthokeratology lenses overnight before you see optimal results. However, some patients experience improved vision in a matter of days. We’ll test your vision in follow-up appointments to check the results of this specialty eye treatment.

Ortho-k has the same possible side effects as regular contact lenses: corneal edema and staining. But they will not greatly damage your eyes.

Ortho-k is reversible and non-invasive while LASIK is not. Ortho-k may be a better route if you plan on stopping treatment.

Ortho-k was originally designed to be worn during the day, so yes, you can wear them while awake. However, since they are reshaping the eye, they’re not the most comfortable to wear while moving around and are better suited for nighttime.

best eye doctor near me

I left my visit pleased and with no questions.

Ivana B.

I had my first visit to this office a couple days ago and was nothing short of amazed! From the moment I walked in, front desk staff knew exactly who I was and were very welcoming. The doctor was also incredibly informative and did not leave me waiting long. Upon checkout, the ladies at the front were again very kind. I left my visit pleased and with no questions. Would definitely recommend anyone to make the switch to this practice!

The entire staff was professional and friendly.

Deborah S.

The entire staff was professional and friendly. I received the most thorough eye exam I’ve had in 40 years. Dr. Derrick spent plenty of time listening and recommending several options. New glasses were created in 15 minutes and I wore them home.

We had a very pleasurable experience.
