Ortho-K

Orthokeratology (also referred to as Ortho-KOvernight Vision CorrectionCorneal Refractive Therapy and CRT)

We use gas permeable lenses at night to shape the eye to wear no glasses or contact lenses are necessary during the day.

  • Candidates for Ortho K include but are not limited to:
  • Children who are nearsighted and their prescription continues to worsen each time they get their eyes checked
  • Patients over 40 years old who need distance and reading glasses and would prefer to be out of glasses
  • People who are outdoors all the time and would prefer to not deal with the hassle of wearing glasses or contact lenses
  • Athletes who need vision for their sports and would like freedom from their glasses and contact lenses
  • People who would prefer a non-surgical, non-permanent option for vision that would allow freedom from glasses and contact lenses

How is what we do different from other Orthokeratology providers in New Mexico?

  • The contact lenses we fit in our office is custom fit to each individual allowing us to work with prescriptions well outside of the typical ranges of these contact lenses
  • Because of the custom nature of the contact lenses we should see more success with helping to prevent further eye growth and nearsighted progression
  • We are able to neutralize astigmatism, myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and help patients with presbyopia with a contact lens that is custom designed for you eye
