Myopia Is Generally Treated With Orthokeratology
To temporarily reshape the cornea using specially crafted and fitted contact lenses in order to enhance vision, a procedure known as orthokeratology, or ortho-k, is performed.

Orthokeratology enhances eyesight by gradually reshaping the eyes while sleeping using specially developed therapeutic contact lenses that you simply put on while sleeping. These efficient and safe procedures can help you correct your near-sightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia.

It is an excellent option to LASIK for individuals who do not want to take the risk of surgery or are not yet ready. In order to achieve 20/20 vision without the need of glasses Orthokeratology reshapes the cornea using hard contact lenses. While Orthokeratology is widely recognised, rigid lenses are often not as pleasant as soft lenses overnight since wearing stiff lenses during the day might feel uncomfortable due to the sensation of the eyelids brushing against the borders of the lenses as you blink.

 Since Orthokeratology lenses are worn while you sleep, there is no blinking, and as a result, there is typically no after-adaptation lens sensation. The cornea is responsible for 60% of the eyes focusing capacity. The cornea is incredibly sensitive to even the smallest adjustments. For instance, a 6um flattening of the corneal thickness alters myopia by 1 diopter. In order to gently push the cornea into the proper form for focused vision, a lens with a certain shape might be utilised.
