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.

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.
