What is Ortho-K?
Orthokeratology: also known as OK lenses, Overnight Vision Correction, Corneal Molding, and Corneal Refractive Therapy)
Ortho-K is the gentle and painless reshaping of the cornea to improve eyesight with our custom designed rigid lenses specifically for your eyes. They are worn while sleeping, in order to correct near-sightedness (myopia) and astigmatism. These special lenses are removed upon waking, the result is clear vision all day long.
Controlling Myopia Progression
This is one of the greatest requests by parents and another huge added benefit of Orthokeratology. For younger patients who suffer from continuing worsening of their nearsightedness (stronger glasses every year) Orthokeratology significantly slows down this progression
Overnight Vision Correction
Orthokeratology is the process of using specially designed molds to change the shape of the cornea. The molds are worn while sleeping, similar to a dental retainer. After waking up and removing the molds you can see great with nothing in the eye. It's completely safe and nonsurgical.
The Orthokeratology Treatment is considerably less expensive then Lasik surgery. Our treatment fee's are global and all-inclusive. This includes all exams, corneal molding lens, follows ups, and replacements for the year. Call us at 718-355-9656 for any Ortho-K related questions!
Simply sleep in our custom Ortho-K lenses and wake up to perfect vision!
My wife and I both got the ortho-k lenses and it has been life-changing (wife 4 weeks in and me 1 day). We had never heard of orthokeratology, but a trustworthy colleague who had gotten it done two years ago highly recommended it. We gave it a shot. It took my wife ~4-5 days to get perfect vision! I just received my lenses yesterday and believe it or not... I felt after 10 minutes of trying it on during fitting that my eye-sight had already improved. One night-- 10 hours of sleep in-- and I woke up to a different world. I can see the Exit Door sign on a building across the harbor from my window. We both did not want to get Lasik this early in our lives (especially with work requiring 10-12 hours in front of a computer all day) and this has been a miraculous discovery. Highly recommend!
Dr. Nguyen was so helpful and positive in my daughter’s Ortho K experience. Her eyesight used to get worse every year but it’s been stable for the past 3 years. Very satisfied with our experience.
