Understanding the Technology
Exceptional oxygen permeability ensures that your eyes get the safe level of oxygen they need during sleep to promote eye health.
These medically designed therapeutic contact lenses, or "eye braces", are typically worn just six to eight hours every night. The result is the temporary correction of myopia (nearsightedness) and astigmatism, thereby providing clear natural vision when the lenses are removed.
Corneal Molding therapeutic contact lenses can be worn by patients of all ages. They are FDA- approved for children as young as six years of age.
Improve the quality of your life. Corneal molding lenses provide freedom for you to work, swim and play without the interference of eyeglasses or contact lenses. Imagine basketball, running, swimming, and other activities, and not being restricted by glasses.
Eye irritation or dryness that can be associated with contact lens wear due to dust, pollution, or computer use is eliminated.
Understanding the Procedure
No surgery! No pain! Great vision! Recent clinical research combined with the latest corneal surface mapping technology, computerized manufacturing and space age oxygen-breathing materials make this possible. Ortho-K offers a legitimate alternate to laser therapy for many people.
If your prescription changes, a simple lens design change will usually solve your new prescription needs. Unlike surgery, where a repeat surgical procedure may not be possible for prescription changes, we simply refit your eye with a new contact lens.
And, the procedure is completely reversible if the therapeutic lens wear is discontinued.
Corneal Refractive Therapy is a non-surgical process clinically developed to reshape your cornea while you sleep. The effect is the temporary reduction of myopia, nearsightedness, with or without astigmatism.
These therapeutic contact lenses gently reshape the cornea during sleep, and provide clear, natural vision when the lenses are removed upon waking. The result is clear, natural vision for all or most of your waking hours.
The procedure is free from surgical risk; it is safe, convenient, comfortable, and does not disrupt visual performance.
Active individuals can freely participate in sports without the interference of eyeglasses or the bother of contacts. Eye irritation or dryness due to dust and pollutants is eliminated.
Our office now offers the Wave Contact Lens System. Wave lenses use a computer-assisted design from a detailed digital map of YOUR cornea. Each lens, therefore, is truly custom-made for your eye.
In addition to Orthokeratology, Wave Contact Lenses are also available in designs for Single Vision, Bifocal, Astigmatism, Keratoconus, and Post-Refractive Surgery.
