Orthokeratology is a safe alternative to laser eye surgery. Laser eye surgery can be expensive and complicated. This irreversible process can result in side effects such as hazy vision, dry eye syndrome, and a higher risk of cataracts.
Following laser surgery short sightedness can return after a period of time. Laser companies sometimes offer ‘retouch’ to try and eliminate the new prescription. Not everyone is keen on having laser again and further treatment cannot guarantee the eye remaining stable.
Fitting with Ortho k lenses has proven successful in correcting prescription changes after laser. A lens in one eye may be all that is required to restore clear comfortable vision again. Candidates usually are former contact lens wearers so have little trouble adapting to the Ortho k lenses.
