Orthokeratology (Ortho-K), also known as Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT) is a non surgical approach in using tailor made contact lenses to reshape or mold your front eye (cornea), making you have a Clarity sight at day time without the use of contact lenses or glasses.
The treatment results should equal the vision correction provided by traditional glasses to contacts. Ortho-K contact lenses are designed to slow down the nearsightedness (Myopia, Rabun Jauh 近视). Ortho-K may provide a solution that may not have been available through the use of traditional glasses or contact.
Yes. Wearing it is safe and effective. Even though the lenses are only worn while sleeping, wearing any contact lens has some level of risk. It is important to always follow the wearing schedule outlined by your eyecare practitioner as well as follow proper lens care techniques by cleaning and disinfecting your lenses each day.
Most patients see noticeable improvement by using Ortho-K in the first few days, and complete vision correction is expected within 1-2 weeks. The onset of myopia (Shortsightedness, Rabun Jauh 近视) at an early age brings with it the likelihood of life long eye care, which can affect visual performance in the classroom. Later in life, if not treated properly, high levels of myopia doubles the risk of serious ocular health problems such as retinal detachment, cataract and glaucoma, which can lead to vision loss and blindness. The causes of myopia (Shortsightedness, Rabun Jauh 近视) are both genetic and environmental. It is estimated that the number of people with myopia will continue to grow. Research and studies have shown that Orthokeratology (Ortho-K) is one of the most successful method to slow down progression of myopia (Shortsightedness, Rabun Jauh 近视) among kids and teenagers.
