Overnight Vision Correction
Orthokeratology - Reversible. Safe. Gentle.
So effective, we call it "Eye Voodoo".
Orthokeratology is available in Gig Harbor.
Gain freedom from contacts & glasses.
ORTHOKERATOLOGY, also called ortho-K or OK, is an overnight service in which custom-designed contact lenses (retainers) are used to gently reshape the front surface of your eye. The contact lenses are worn at night when you sleep and removed when you wake up. These lenses gently reshape your cornea so you can see perfectly during the day.
Wear the lenses at night.
Be contact and glasses-free during the day.
Ortho-K Lenses are great for:
Medical Workers with masks and shields - no more fogging!
Sports - especially contact or water sports.
Working in dusty or dirty environments.
Dry eye or allergies.
Children with progressive myopia.
People looking for alternative to LASIK surgery.

Questions & Answers about Overnight Vision Correction
How Orthokeratology Works
Ideal prescriptions are up to -5.00 of nearsightedness and -1.75 of surface astigmatism. We can figure out at the consultation if you are a candidate based on your prescription, topography, and needs/wants.
Improvements can usually be seen the next day, with the procedure stabilizing after a week for most patients. OK does not permanently change the shape of the eye. Your eyes’ shape will revert back to original state within 1-4 weeks if you stop wearing the lenses.
Safe, effective, and reversible.
Ortho-K patients see improvements in a day.
Orthokeratology lenses are surprisingly comfortable to wear. Most people comment that they forget they have lenses in after the first week of wear.
Similar to disposable soft contact lenses, the main adverse event is infection…. with proper care and maintenance, the risk is minimized, so follow your doctor’s recommendations.
Orthokeratology gently reshapes the cornea to improve vision.

How Do I Know If I Am A Candidate?
1. The data from the vision exam tells a lot, but not all.
2. Topography is also needed. This instrument takes a map of the surface to help us determine astigmatism.
Getting an eye exam & topography of the eyes is the first step to qualify.
In just one visit, we can determine if Ortho-K is right for you.
