Who Is a Candidate for Ortho-k?

(480) 820-9880

Are You Considering Ortho-k Lenses?

Orthokeratology, often called ortho-k, is a non-surgical vision correction method that has gained popularity in recent years. It involves the use of specially designed gas-permeable contact lenses to temporarily reshape the cornea, thereby providing clear vision throughout the day without the need for eyeglasses or standard contact lenses. This revolutionary approach has shown promise in myopia management and has become preferable for those seeking independence from daytime visual aids.

However, ortho-k might not be suitable for everyone. The effectiveness and safety of this treatment rely on several factors, including your eye health, prescription, and lifestyle.

Ortho-k and Myopia: A Clear Solution for Nearsightedness

Ortho-k is primarily designed to correct nearsightedness, also known as myopia. You could be a potential candidate for this treatment if you have myopia and find seeing objects at a distance challenging. Ortho-k lenses can effectively reduce this condition, giving you clear vision throughout the day.

However, it's important to note that ortho-k is most effective for people with mild to moderate myopia. If a prescription falls within this range, there's a higher likelihood of achieving satisfactory results with ortho-k lenses. These lenses may be less effective for individuals with high levels of myopia or other complex vision problems.

  • Contact Lens Intolerance or Discomfort

    Ortho-k may be a suitable alternative if you've experienced discomfort or intolerance with standard contact lenses. These specially designed lenses are worn overnight while you sleep, so you don't have to worry about daytime discomfort or dryness often associated with traditional contact lenses.

  • Active Lifestyles and Sports Enthusiasts

    Ortho-k is an excellent option for individuals with active lifestyles or athletes. You can enjoy your favorite sports activities with unhindered vision without needing glasses or daytime contact lenses. Athletes and outdoor enthusiasts often find ortho-k lenses particularly convenient.

  • Children and Adolescents

    Ortho-k can be a valuable option for children and adolescents with myopia. Slowing myopia's progression during these formative years can have long-term benefits for eye health. If your child has myopia, speak to your 20/20 Image Eye Centers - Chandler eye doctor about ortho-k as a potential treatment option.

  • Daily Lens Care and Compliance

    Successful ortho-k treatment requires a commitment to daily lens care and compliance with your eye care professional's recommendations. You'll need to clean, store the lenses correctly, and follow the prescribed wearing schedule.

Dr. Milita waived an optical scan payment when a dilation procedure wouldn’t take. I found out th... ere is some abnormal issue with one eye but she assured me everything would turn out fine. She also recommended I get a second opinion if I choose to do so, which no eye care let alone health care provider has ever instilled in me. Great service and care all around.

Smooth process from beginning to end! I found all of the team members to be approachable, friendly,... and professional. Dr. Petrauskaite was extremely knowledgeable and able to give me an exact prescription to manage my post-operative vision needs. Soooooooo, the first time around, I was not happy with the way my glasses turned out (entirely my fault, when ordering 😳)! Thomas D. was gracious and empathetic towards my debacle, and the manager was understanding enough to allow the remake of the 2nd pair, which ultimately fulfilled my needs... I am truly appreciative and will absolutely recommend 20/20 Image Eye Centers to my friends and colleagues, moving forward! 🤗

I had a really good visit. I like the fact they were not just trying to get money but they made sure... everything was within my budget. They were not pushy trying to get me to get expensive frames but were able to find similar styles that were within my budget. The doctor was professional and pleasant. I didn’t have to wait at all for my appointment they took me right in the back to get started. I will make this my new eye doctor while living in Arizona.
