Wouldn’t it be great if you can correct your shortsightedness and achieve good vision without spectacles or contact lens during day time – without even having to undergo LASIK or any kind of surgery?
It might sound unimaginable, but it’s a reality now. Introducing Orthokeratology (Ortho-K), also known as Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT). Ortho-K is a non-surgical procedure that uses a specialized contact lens to reshape the eye surface (cornea) at night, providing good vision at day time without the use of spectacles or contact lenses.
Besides that, Orthokeratology (Ortho-K) is also the most successful method to slow down progression of shortsightedness (myopia) and to control it’s progression among children and teenagers.
how it works?The eye surface or cornea, is the outermost transparent layer of the eye and functions as a light focusing mechanism for the eye to achieve clear vision. In the case of shortsightedness, it’s either the cornea possesses a steep curvature or the eye ball had elongated excessively, hence causing light to falsely focus in the eye.
