At the office of Palisade Eye, our experienced eye doctor and team of eyecare professionals keep pace with advanced technology and treatment methods, to provide you with the highest quality care. As part of our comprehensive menu of eyecare services, we offer orthokeratology, which is a non-invasive option for correcting common refractive errors, such as myopia and astigmatism. Ortho-K treatment eliminates the need for daytime contact lenses or glasses, offering a comfortable and convenient alternative for improving the quality of your vision.
Ortho-k treatment works by gently reshaping the curvature of the cornea, using special gas-permeable lenses that are only worn at night. Ortho-k lenses can effectively treat mild to moderate cases of myopia and astigmatism as well as improve visual acuity for other types of refractive errors. To determine if ortho-k lenses are the right course of treatment for you, our highly skilled eye doctor will perform a comprehensive eye exam, which includes advanced diagnostic imaging of the cornea. After measuring the curvature of your cornea, your lenses will be customized to suit the unique shape of your eye, and the level of correction needed.
We will instruct you on how to correctly place and care for your ortho-k lenses to achieve the best outcome of care. Since the ortho-k lenses are only worn while you sleep, and removed upon waking in the morning, you can enjoy clear, crisp vision without the need for any corrective eyewear throughout the day. Ortho-k treatment is an excellent option for patients of ages. Because Ortho-k is completely reversible, other options in vision correction such as eyeglasses, contact lenses and LASIK procedures can always be explored.
At the office of Palisade Eye, we’re dedicated to providing the highest quality of skilled and compassionate care. For more information on our office and the many services that we provide, give us a call today.
