Myopia control with Ortho-K at Top One Optical

Are you tired of wearing glasses or contact lenses every day? Imagine waking up each morning with clear vision without needing to reach for your glasses or pop in your contacts. This isn’t a dream; it’s the reality that orthokeratology (Ortho-K) offers. At Top One Optical, we’re excited to bring this revolutionary vision correction method to our patients. Let’s dive into what Ortho-K is, who it’s for, and how we can help you achieve clear vision.

What is Ortho-K?

Orthokeratology, commonly known as Ortho-K, is a non-surgical process that uses specially designed contact lenses to temporarily reshape the cornea while you sleep. You’ll wear these lenses overnight, and in the morning, you’ll have clear vision that lasts the whole day without needing glasses or contact lenses. It’s like having LASIK surgery every night, but without the surgery!

Who Can Benefit from Ortho-K?

Ortho-K is a fantastic option for people with myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), astigmatism, or presbyopia who want a break from daytime eyewear. It’s particularly appealing for:

  • Active Individuals: Whether you’re into sports, outdoor activities, or just enjoy a lifestyle on the go, Ortho-K frees you from the inconvenience of glasses or contact lenses during the day.
  • Children and Teenagers: Ortho-K is not only about clear daytime vision; it’s also proven to slow the progression of myopia in children, making it an excellent preventive measure for young eyes.
  • Professionals: For those who work in environments where glasses and contacts aren’t ideal, Ortho-K offers a hassle-free solution to keep you focused and efficient.

How Does Ortho-K Work?

The magic of Ortho-K lies in the cornea’s flexibility. The custom-designed lenses gently and safely reshape the cornea’s surface overnight, correcting refractive errors. This reshaping focuses light directly onto the retina, providing clear vision throughout the day. The effect is temporary, so the lenses need to be worn each night for continuous clarity.

Is Ortho-K Permanent?

No, the corneal reshaping achieved through Ortho-K is temporary. The procedure works by adjusting the cornea’s front surface, compressing it in certain areas and expanding it in others to correct vision. This effect starts to diminish once Ortho-K lens wear is discontinued, with the cornea naturally reverting to its original shape over a few days.

Think of it like leaving an imprint on a couch cushion after sitting for an extended period; the cushion eventually returns to its normal shape. Similarly, consistent Ortho-K lens use is required to maintain the vision correction, typically taking about a week of nightly wear to see the full benefits. However, this effect is reversible, offering an advantage over permanent surgical options like LASIK. This reversibility is particularly beneficial for children, allowing for adjustments in lens design as their eyes grow and change, with most Ortho-K effects reversing within the first week of not wearing the lenses.

Can Ortho-K Lenses Help With Myopia?

Myopia, or nearsightedness, is on the rise, especially in children, posing risks to long-term vision and eye health. However, strategies like using specialized eyewear, encouraging outdoor activities, and limiting close work can help manage its progression.

Ortho-K lenses stand out as an effective myopia control treatment, proven to significantly slow myopia’s progression in children. They are backed by extensive research, making them a leading option for managing nearsightedness.
