Ortho-k: We provide Orthokeratology services or "Ortho-k", a non-surgical corneal refractive procedure that involves wearing "retainer" lenses while you sleep. The result is clear vision during the daytime without the aid of daily glasses or contact lens wear. Ortho-k is a great alternative to LASIK in nearsighted prescriptions, and even children can benefit from it. Multiple recent studies indicate that ortho-k may help slow or stop the progression of myopia. If you or your child is becoming increasingly nearsighted, there is finally something you can do about it! Read more about orthokeratology HERE: ORTHO-K at Huntsville Vision Center.
