The Ortho K Procedure
Works While You're Asleep
Ortho k involves first measuring the refraction of your eye, which tells the doctor the degree of nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism you have.
Next it will be necessary to map the shape of the front surface of the eye using an instrument called a corneal topographer. Based on this digital map of your eye, your eye doctor will determine the ideal shape of your cornea.
Then a series of special contacts are made according to your doctor’s exact specifications for your eyes. Initially they will be worn for about eight hours daily until the cornea is reshaped, proper correction is achieved, and your vision is improved.
Sometimes your doctor will actually prescribe a wearing schedule that allows you to only wear the lenses while you sleep. After that, the lenses may only need to be worn for a few hours a day for about three days a week to keep the cornea in the shape necessary for you to see clearly. The exact wearing schedule will depend on the correction your doctor thinks you need.
