OrthoK is a contact lens worn at night that reshapes the front part of your eye to give you perfect vision when you wake up 👀☀️…very similar to braces giving you the perfect smile.😁
OrthoK also slows down the progression of your nearsightedness prescription so you do not end up with coke bottle glasses 🤓 👍🏻
Best of all, it is safe for children and our patient’s love it! 💜

Here is what our wonderful patient has to say:
“𝐒𝐢𝐧𝐜𝐞 𝐈 𝐚𝐦 𝐨𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐩𝐮𝐭𝐞𝐫…𝐈 𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐫𝐭𝐞𝐝 𝐭𝐨 𝐞𝐱𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐞 𝐞𝐲𝐞 𝐬𝐭𝐫𝐚𝐢𝐧…𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐝𝐞𝐜𝐢𝐝𝐞𝐝 𝐭𝐨 𝐭𝐫𝐲 𝐕𝐢𝐬𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐓𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐚𝐩𝐲. 𝐃𝐫. 𝐂𝐚𝐨 𝐢𝐬 𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐲 𝐬𝐰𝐞𝐞𝐭, 𝐩𝐨𝐬𝐢𝐭𝐢𝐯𝐞, 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐨𝐮𝐫𝐚𝐠𝐢𝐧𝐠. 𝐀𝐟𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝐚𝐥𝐥 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐬𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬, 𝐈 𝐞𝐱𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐞 𝐥𝐞𝐬𝐬 𝐞𝐲𝐞 𝐬𝐭𝐫𝐚𝐢𝐧. 𝐈 𝐡𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐥𝐲 𝐫𝐞𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐝 𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐭𝐨 𝐕𝐢𝐳𝐞𝐧!”
𝐂𝐨𝐧𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐠𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐞 𝐈𝐧𝐬𝐮𝐟𝐟𝐢𝐜𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐲 may be a factor in causing tired eyes for many patients. Convergence Insufficiency is when a patient does not have enough ability to cross their eyes when reading or on the computer leading to eye fatigue, headaches, difficulty concentrating, and many more!
