Dr. Robert Gerowitz, Optometrist PC, offers several corrective eyewear options. In addition to eyeglasses and contact lenses, we offer Orthokeratology, also referred to as corneal refractive therapy. It’s an effective alternative to traditional corrective eyewear choices.
Here are some of the things that make OrthoK a great vision correction option:
Ensures Your Improved Visual Acuity
OrthoK therapy is one of the safest and most reliable methods to treat common refractive errors. It was primarily developed to manage myopia (nearsightedness), but research has shown that it’s also very effective at correcting hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism.
Provides Unparalleled Convenience
OrthoK lenses are meant to be worn while you sleep. They are designed to gently reshape your cornea, so when you wake up the next day, you can remove the lenses and enjoy clear eyesight.
Lets You Enjoy Immediate Effects and a More Natural Feeling
As soon as you wake up, you may remove the OrthoK lenses and immediately experience sharper visual acuity. OrthoK’s effects usually last a whole day long without requiring you to use other corrective eyewear. You can enjoy a feeling of normalcy as go about your day, as if you have no vision problems at all.
Helps You Enjoy a Better Quality of Life
By using OrthoK lenses, you’ll have better visual acuity. The lenses are made of a gas-permeable material designed to maintain your comfort while you sleep. They make a convenient option as well since you don’t have to rely on corrective eyewear during the day. You’ll be able to do many activities without unstable vision holding you back, letting you enjoy enhanced quality of life.
