Orthokeratology, or “ortho-k,” is the non-surgical process of reshaping the eye with custom designed rigid gas permeable (GP) contact lenses. Ortho-K is effective in slowing or even halting the progression of myopia. Kids whose myopia are progressing benefit the most from Ortho-K by wearing Ortho-K at night and enjoying clear vision at daytime without wearing glasses. Other names for orthokeratology are CRT, corneal refractive therapy, overnight corneal reshaping, et al.
