What is Ortho-K (Orthokeratology) or OK Lens?
Ortho-K or “OK Lens” is a revolutionary non-surgical process that improves your vision and eliminates the need for glasses or daytime
contact lenses. It works by gently reshaping the front surface of the eye (cornea) by wearing a specially designed high oxygen rigid
gas permeable (RGP) lens while you sleep. You will have clear, sharp and natural vision during waking hours.

Optimal vision can be achieved within one to four weeks. However, it is very common for some to reach excellent vision in the
next day or two. Duration of the treatment depends on the severity of the initial prescription. While the cornea is being reshaped
during the first few days, it may be necessary for some to be fitted with a temporary soft contact until optimal treatment result
