Can you imagine
the joy of waking up in the morning and not having to wear glasses or contact
lenses during the day? It would free you up for a host of activities that you
may otherwise avoid because of your need to wear glasses or contact lenses.
Now there is a revolutionary, non-surgical treatment that
improves your natural vision in a matter of hours - days - weeks. Your
nearsightedness and astigmatism may improve dramatically the next day after your
first fitting with the new
medical method is called Ortho-K and it works. The Ortho-K
procedure is achieved by wearing specially-designed contact lenses that have
been custom designed to gently change the shape of your cornea, the front
curvature of your eye, so as to safely and gently improve tour vision. This
marvelous new method of vision improvement is accomplished by applying a series
of accelerated contact lenses most often worn over a period of weeks or several
months to attain better vision.
Ortho-K is safe, effective, and best of
lenses are applied to your
eyes, we will measure the curvature of your cornea. This latest procedure of
and is done with our sophisticated computerized instrument called a Corneal
Topographer, that does Corneal Mapping.
The elevation, shape, and power changes of the cornea are displayed with
sophisticated colored maps, along with a variety of other computerized displays.
This latest method of measuring the cornea is truly state-of-the-art, allowing
us to analyze the initial topography of the cornea and subsequent changes as the
corneal molding therapy progresses.
Most of the visual changes that occur
rapidly with Ortho-K happen in the first few days and weeks. Because of
the rapid improvement in vision, there is a need for frequent examinations and
progressive lens changes. Following the accelerated change to better vision,
stabilization procedures then follow at a slower pace over the next few months.
