Want to correct vision without the intrusiveness of surgeries? Well, now you’re in luck. Thanks to the wonders of advanced medical technology, make that change—yesterday. Use the restorative nature of Orthokeratology to get that vision back to a crystal clear view. Getting started on that journey is easy. All you have to do is visit Riverdell Family Vision Care and meet with our Emerson Orthokeratology doctor.
Now…before you go sprinting toward the dictionary with the speed of a hungry bear hunting after prey, we’ll clear up whatever confusion you have about what Orthokeratology is. In a nutshell, they are contact lenses that slowly alters the shape or curvature of the cornea, adjusting how light focuses on the retina. And what involves this re-shaping? Two things: a contact lens and sleep. That’s right—contact lenses. Ortho-K uses a specially designed gas permeable contact lens that is worn while you snore. The lenses slowly alter the front surface of the eye (as you’re sleeping), so you’ll see much better in the morning. It is mainly used for: correcting refractive issues (astigmatism, nearsightedness, etc.), and to slow the development of childhood myopia. Keep in mind that these results aren’t permanent, so the improved vision only lasts for a limited time. With that said, if you’re interested in moving ahead or if you’re wanting more information about it, don’t hesitate to contact Riverdell Family Vision Care. And then meet with our Emerson Orthokeratology doctor.
