Correct Your Vision While You Sleep!
Corneal molding or Orthokeratology (OrthoK) is a safe non-invasive and reversible treatment technique to reduce or eliminate the need for glasses and daytime contact lenses. This is achieved by placing a corneal mold or lens on the eye before sleeping and removing it after waking. OrthoK treatment is great for kids and adults and can be used to treat myopia (nearsightedness) and astigmatism. To achieve this treatment Dr. Kelvin designs customized corneal molds specific to your unique corneal curvature and visual needs. Dr. Kelvin is a member of the American Academy of Orthokeratology and Myopia Control. To learn more about OrthoK, visit The American Academy of Orthokeratology and Myopia Control.
Myopia (Nearsightedness) Control
Does your child’s prescription keep increasing every year? Myopia progression is due primarily to lengthening of the eye typically from age 8 to 18. OrthoK can be used to slow or stop progression of myopia. Children in the Retardation of Myopia in Orthokeratology (ROMIO) Study (2012) showed a 43% reduction in myopia progression with OrthoK treatment when compared children who wore glasses.
