ORTHO-K

Tired of wearing your glasses or contact lenses?  Not ready for LASIK?  Uptown Family Vision proudly offers a unique service known as orthokeratology (ortho-K).

Ortho-K is a non-surgical process in which special contact lenses are used to gently reshape the cornea of the eye.  By wearing these special lenses overnight, ortho-K eliminates the need for glasses or contact lens during the day.

Ortho-K is safe and great for kids!  Ortho-K is FDA approved for all ages to correct myopia (or nearsightedness).  If your child has a nearsighted prescription, schoolwork, sports, and other activities can be affected.  In most cases, myopia tends to progress over time.  An exciting side benefit is that studies have shown that ortho-K may reduce the rate at which myopia is worsening.
