Orthokeratology

Orthokeratology is a technique that slows the progression of childhood myopia. It consists of wearing specialty, rigid contact lenses overnight in order to reshape the cornea. This new shape corrects the aberrations on the peripheral of the retina, which slows the elongation of the eye and therefore the progression of myopia. Another advantage of this method is that during the treatment period, the daytime vision is greatly improved, often without correction. This treatment involves an initial contact lens adjustment as well as several follow ups, in order to ensure that the correction is adequate. The corneal topography is very useful for orthokeratology as it provides a precise view of the treatment zone. Many studies have been conducted around the world and confirm the success of this treatment. For further information and to find out if you are a good candidate, visit your optometrist at Optika Eye Care.
