  • Procedure

We at Family Eye Care of Roswell are committed to providing the best technology and quality care to our patients. So we are offering a noninvasive technique that corrects most people's vision almost overnight. This procedure is called Orthokeratology (Ortho-K for short). The procedure involves using specialty rigid oxygen permeable contact lenses that you wear only when you sleep! This method is safe and 100% reversible. It can even be used on children! We use a cutting edge design, which combines computer assisted laser cut lenses with a custom digital map of your cornea.

  • Ortho-K Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How does Ortho-K work?

A: Specially designed shaping lenses gradually reshape the cornea, similar to lasers in reversing nearsightedness, however, unlike surgery, the effect is temporary and is reversible.

Q: Is Ortho-K permanent?

A: The treatment is only maintained by wearing the lenses overnight. If the lenses are not worn, the cornea will simply go back to the old shape.

Q: How long does it take for the process to stabilize and give good vision for the whole day?

A: Typically, four to seven consecutive nights of wear will achieve good results.

Q: How much correction will I realistically be able to expect using Ortho-K?

A: The upper limit is around 5.00 diopters of myopia reduction. Lower amounts are faster and easier to correct.

Q: Will Ortho-K correct astigmatism?

A: It depends on the amount of astigmatism and the type. Please consult the doctor as there are several types of astigmatism.

Q: If I decide to go back to wearing glasses, can my vision be restored as it was before treatment?

A: Yes. It typically takes about two weeks for the eye to go back to its original shape.
