Orthokeratology noninvasive vision correction now a local option

Contact lenses worn overnight mean daytime freedom from glasses
February 27, 2024

Utilizing a non-invasive vision correction procedure, the Contact Lens Institute of Delaware introduces orthokeratology as a cutting-edge solution for its patients seeking clear vision without the need for glasses or daytime contact lenses.

Orthokeratology, often referred to as Ortho-K, is a revolutionary technique involving specially designed gas-permeable contact lenses worn overnight to gently reshape the cornea. This results in improved vision during waking hours, offering a unique alternative for people with myopia (nearsightedness) and astigmatism.

Ortho-K means freedom from glasses and daytime contact lenses because it works while a person sleeps, providing crisp vision without the need for corrective lenses during the day.

Unlike surgical procedures such as LASIK, Ortho-K is a non-invasive approach, making it an appealing choice for those hesitant about surgery.

Ortho-K also has gained popularity among parents seeking myopia management for their children, potentially slowing down the progression of nearsightedness in younger individuals.

The Contact Lens Institute of Delaware is at the forefront of this transformative vision correction method, dedicated to providing personalized Ortho-K treatments tailored to each patient’s unique visual needs.

Dr. Michael Rebarchik, chief optometrist at the Contact Lens Institute of Delaware, invites those intrigued by the prospect of clear vision without the need for traditional eyewear to schedule a consultation to explore the benefits of Ortho-K.

The Contact Lens Institute of Delaware is at 34446 King Street Row #1, ​​​​Lewes.
