Non-Surgical Alternative to LASIK: Ortho-K
Patients who are not candidates for laser vision correction or who would rather not undergo a surgical procedure to correct their vision, may want to consider ortho-keratology, or Ortho-K. This innovative, non-surgical vision correction treatment uses a revolutionary nighttime corrective gas-permeable lens to gently reshape the cornea. This allows light entering the eye to properly focus on the retina for clearer vision. The lenses are removed in the morning and patients are able to see clearly for the rest of the day. There is no surgery involved.
