If you are looking for an alternative to laser surgery that can improve your vision in a similar fashion, you may be interested in orthokeratology, or more commonly known as “ortho-k”. Ortho-K involves temporarily reshaping the cornea through the use of specialized contact lenses.
Our main Ortho-K lens for myopia control is the Moonlens and Misight. We also use Atropine.
Although these lenses are not very common and most people still prefer laser surgery to ortho-k, the reshaping method gained more attention and approval after the contact lenses were designed to be worn while sleeping. If you have more questions about orthokeratology or would like to see if it might be the right path for you, call us at (954) 840-8776 to schedule an eye exam with us today.
