Orthokeratology Featured on ABC News

I came across this video on orthokeratology .  I believe it is from 2002, however it is still very relevant and the information still applies to how ortho-k is a safe, viable, non-surgical option to vision correction.  Studies have also shown that overnight ortho-k may prevent or slow the progression of nearsightedness in children.

    Thank you for the link to the video. I have really enjoyed orhtokeratolgy and the benefits that it provides.

    • I had Lasik surgery in 2003 – 2004, but in fall of 08 my vision became worse, so now I wear glasses again. Is Ortho-K a viable treatment for me?

      • That is a good question…. maybe. It depends on many factors. I would not rule it out, however, no one could really give you odds on the chances of success. I don’t see a lot of down side to trying since Ortho K is reversible. If orthokeratology did not achieve the success you desire you would not be making it worse and could go back to the way you were merely by discontinuing the contact lenses.

  3. I just posted a list of studies that indicate orthokeratology can slow the progression of myopia. I was skeptical when I first heard about it but the evidence is growing. Check it out Clear View Eye Care
