Ortho-K: The Key to Effortless, Clear Vision

Ortho K LensesIf you thought that Ortho-k lenses are only for nearsighted children, think again. While Ortho-k lenses do slow the progression of childhood myopia, they’re also a great option for adults who are nearsighted, farsighted or have astigmatism.

If you’re tired of wearing glasses or contact lenses all day, call us at in Tukwila today to schedule an Ortho-k consultation.

Q: What are Ortho-k lenses?

A: Ortho-k lenses are special contact lenses designed to change the shape of your cornea, the clear front part of your eye, while you sleep. By reshaping the cornea, Ortho-k lenses can correct refractive errors, so you can wake up to clear vision.

Q: Are Ortho-k lenses safe and comfortable?

A: Ortho-k lenses are made of comfortable materials, and they are approved by the FDA for overnight wear. They are easy to put in and take out and won't interfere with your sleep.

Q: Can Ortho-k lenses improve the quality of life for people who wear them?

A: Yes! Ortho-k lenses can be life-changing, especially for people who lead an active lifestyle or play sports.

Q: Are Ortho-k lenses easy to care for?

A: Ortho-K lenses are easy to care for and only need to be worn overnight. They are removed in the morning and cleaned with a special solution. They’re stored in a special case when not in use.
