Orthokeratology lenses (Ortho-K) are specially designed lenses that non-surgically corrects your vision. It gently reshapes your cornea while you sleep. The correction works for myopia (short-sighted), hyperopia (long-sighted), and astigmatism.
Both children and adults can use Ortho-K lenses. The main benefit for children is to slow down myopia progression, and to facilitate an active lifestyle free from spectacles.
As Singapore has one of the highest rates of childhood myopia in the world, Ortho-K is a common option for myopia control.
These lenses are individually customized to temporarily eliminate your refractive errors and focus your vision.
Just by using Ortho-K lenses while you sleep, you can enjoy improved vision during the day without spectacles or contact lenses!
