Custom Accelerated Orthokeratology

The Principle of Orthokeratology

Custom Accelerated Orthokeratology (CAOK or Ortho-K) is a non-surgical approach to correcting myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), and astigmatism associated with either condition. Ortho-K offers an extremely low risk alternative to LASIK Surgery and is completely reversible. This procedure uses specially designed contact lenses which reshape or mold the surface of the cornea to reduce or eliminate the need for glasses. The molding process occurs while you sleep

A specially designed contact lens is placed on the cornea while you sleep to re-shape the corneal curvature



The specially designed gas permeable lens fits closer to the cornea centrally, compared to the standard contact lens, exerting a gentle pressure on the tear film centrally.




As gentle pressure is exerted on the tear film centrally, the cornea is remolded into the peripheral portion of the contact lens.
