Orthokeratology – Safely correct your vision in your sleep
You should not wear contact lenses to sleep- except when you are correcting your vision overnight with FDA-approved Orthokeratology custom- designed contact lenses! Orthokeratology, also known as Ortho-K, helps reshape your cornea using custom contact lenses to correct nearsightedness in just hours. This process is becoming increasingly popular especially in Danville and in the San Francisco East Bay Area for those looking for alternative options to regular glasses and contact lenses.
How Does it Work?
The cornea is the surface of the eye and gives you the most focusing power. Even changing the cornea shape slightly can influence the prescription produced for corrected vision. Ortho-K reinforces a firm contact lenses to gently mold your cornea so that you can wake up with clear vision. It’s recommended to wear it every night since the effects last about 24-48 hours until your cornea returns to the original shape.
