Whether you have myopia, hyperopia, or astigmatism, the conditions can cause blurry vision and make tasks like reading and driving difficult. At Eye and Contact Lens Center in Kirkland, WA, we provide various treatments, such as orthokeratology, to improve your vision and overall quality of life. Before scheduling your appointment, learn more about these lenses below!


What is Orthokeratology?

Orthokeratology, also known as Ortho-K, is a treatment that is designed to help you see better throughout the day without eyeglasses or contact lenses. These lenses are worn while you sleep and temporarily reshape your cornea for clearer vision. Depending on your job or the hobbies that you enjoy, you may find Ortho-K highly beneficial.

How Do Ortho-K Lenses Help Improve Vision?

Ortho-k are thicker and firmer than standard lenses, but once you get used to them you won't even notice you're wearing them. You'll put the lenses in before you go to sleep and take them out when you wake up in the morning. It can take a few weeks to see maximum results, but over time you'll enjoy sharper vision since the corneas retain their new shape for several hours.

Is Ortho-K Safe and Effective?

Ortho-K is safe and effective for individuals of all ages. However, they may not be suited for those with certain eye conditions and require proper care. Our optometrist, Dr. Golitz, will perform a comprehensive eye exam and determine if the lenses would be beneficial for you. We will also help you with the insertion or removal process and provide instructions for at-home care.
