Ortho-K Contact Lenses in Danville

Book Appointment

Contacts That can Reshape the Future of Your Vision

A lot of refractive errors can occur because of the shape of your cornea. While this can be mitigated or even corrected through the use of glasses, regular contact lenses, or laser eye surgery, not all of these options are a good choice for all patients.

Ortho-K contact lenses have revolutionized contact lens technology, allowing you to have great vision without the need to wear glasses or contacts or undergo surgery.

Ortho-K contact lenses are designed to be worn at night while you sleep. During this time, the lens gently reshapes the surface of your cornea, correcting your refractive error and providing you with clear vision the next day, no glasses or contacts required.

If you think Ortho-K contact lenses might be a good match for you and your vision, book an appointment with us today!

What Is Ortho-K (Mandarin)

Who Can Wear Ortho-K?

Ortho-K contact lenses can be a good choice for almost any patient. Anyone interested in the lenses is more than welcome to see if they are a match. All you need to do is book an eye exam and let us know you are curious about Ortho-k.

Generally, ortho-k lenses are typically prescribed to patients with myopia, with children usually being the best candidates. Myopia is a common refractive error found in children and adults, and ongoing studies have found that Ortho-K contact lenses can help mitigate the development of myopia in children.

Children also live active lifestyles, meaning that having glasses or traditional contact lenses might hinder their daily activities.

What to Expect from a Fitting

An Ortho-K contact lens fitting is similar to our regular eye exams. The only difference is that your eyes will be evaluated and measured to determine if ortho-k lenses are a good choice for you.

An optometrist measures your eyes using a corneal topographer. This is an easy test that measures the shape of your corneal surface. Depending on what your optometrist determines during the eye exam, they will let you know whether or not ortho-k contact lenses are right for you.

What Can Prevent Me From Wearing Ortho-K Lenses?

Who can wear Ortho-K contacts is determined on a per-patient basis. Some patients might have trouble wearing any form of contact, and certain health conditions might make it difficult to wear Ortho-K contact lenses comfortably.

The only way to be entirely sure is to book an eye exam with your optometrist.

What To Expect From Ortho-K Lenses

For the first little while, you may need to try different prescriptions to help find the best fit for your eyes. Your optometrist may have the contact lenses in-office already, or they might have to order them.

Depending on your eyes, you will likely be required to wear the lenses every single night to achieve the best results. However, some patients might only need to wear their contacts once every couple of nights. Results differ from patient to patient, so your optometrist will let you know what your optimal schedule is.

For the first few days, you may find that your vision is still blurry. This is completely normal. In some cases, it might take a few nights to have your eyes get used to the new lenses. However, if you are experiencing persistent issues, please don’t be afraid to contact your eye care professional.

Your optometrist might also prescribe a pair of soft contact lenses to wear during the day. These could be worn temporarily but may be prescribed as a permanent solution to encourage your eyes to stay re-shaped during the day.
