Improve Your Vision While You Sleep

zlatinImagine being free from glasses or contact lenses all day long without the need of any kind of surgery. With a new process called Ortho-K you can improve your vision while you sleep.

Ortho-k is the process of using custom designed vision retainers to gently reshape the cornea while you sleep. These vision retainers resemble rigid oxygen permeable contact lenses. Wearers remove them in the morning and will notice a significant improvement in their uncorrected visual acuity, even after the first night. Ortho-K is safe, effective and FDA approved for both children and adults.

Several new studies indicate that Ortho-K can potentially reduce the progression of myopia (nearsightedness) in children and teenagers. So, if you try Ortho-K in your teens and then decide to discontinue wearing the reshaping lenses later in life, you may be less nearsighted as an adult than you would be if you had worn eyeglasses or conventional contact lenses during your teen years. It is great for many patients who are near sighted or near sighted with astigmatism.

Ortho-K is a wonderful option for athletes. In order to excel in sports, athletes need to have the best vision possible. Glasses can be knocked off or broken while participating in sports. Contact lenses can dry out, move off center, and do not correct astigmatism as well as eyeglasses. Eye allergies can also be a problem for contact lens wearers. Patients who opt for Ortho-K do not have to worry about any of these problems.
