Refractive errors happen when structural irregularities compromise the normal light bending process in your eyes. In addition to using corrective eyewear or undergoing vision therapy, Clear View Vision Care offers orthokeratology as another reliable vision correction option.
Here are some of the many visual benefits ortho k offers:
Improved Image Sharpness and Overall Visual Clarity
Having a cornea that’s unusually shaped or unevenly surfaced often results in refractive errors. Corneal reshaping therapies intend to correct these structural deformities for your better visual acuity. Ortho k lenses, in particular, are engineered to modify your cornea as you wear them overnight. For those who are nearsighted, for example, the ortho k lenses will gently flatten your overly curved corneas.
One of the best things about orthokeratology is it offers a feeling of normalcy. Orthokeratology lenses are supposed to be worn while you’re sleeping, which is why this method is also called “overnight vision correction.” The technology behind the lenses allows the gentle reshaping of your corneal surface, so you can wake up to improved vision. As soon as you wake up, you may remove the lenses and experience better visual clarity without having to use other corrective eyewear. You get to enjoy a good day’s worth of sharper vision, as if you had no refractive errors.
With ortho k, you’re sure to experience the effects immediately. After wearing the ortho k lenses for just one night, you will have better vision the next day. These results often last at least a whole day. For optimum results and your convenience, we recommend using the ortho k molds every night.
Better Quality of Life
Your eye doctor shares that the most important benefit of choosing orthokeratology is an improved better quality of life. With the natural vision you’ll have, you’ll be able to perform your everyday tasks hassle-free. You’re free to enjoy your hobbies, like swimming, without poor vision holding you back.
