Orthokeratology Treatment From Our Galveston Eye Doctor

At Texas City Eye Consultants, our Galveston eye doctor offers a wide range of eye and vision care services to patients in League City, Texas City, and the surrounding areas. If you have a less-than-perfect vision and are tired of having to wear daily contact lenses or eyeglasses, then it may be time to look into orthokeratology treatment as a means of improving your eyesight without the need for invasive surgery (such as LASIK).

We offer ortho-k service right here in our office, and it just might be the answer you've been looking for to your vision imperfections.

orthokeratology from our Galveston eye doctor

What is Ortho-K and How Does it Work?

Specifically, orthokeratology (also commonly referred to as ortho-k) is a vision treatment that involves the use of gas permeable lenses to temporarily reshape the surface of the cornea. These contact lenses are worn overnight, which allows them to re-shape your corneas as needed while you sleep. When you wake up, you can enjoy improved vision and temporary correction of any number of vision problems, including:

• myopia

• hyperopia

• astigmatism

• other refractive errors

For many people who are treated with ortho-k service, wearing these contacts at night allows them to go the entire following day with clear vision and without the need for corrective lenses!

Are You a Viable Candidate for Ortho-K?

Many people are viable candidates for ortho-k treatment, but we always recommend that you schedule a consultation with our optometrist as a means of determining whether or not this is the right option for you. Since the gas-permeable lenses used in this treatment allow for the re-shaping of the corneas, this treatment is best for people with vision problems related to misshapen corneas. Astigmatism is the most common vision condition that can be treated with ortho-k, but it is certainly not the only vision condition that can be temporarily corrected with it.

Keep in mind that you will also need to be diligent about wearing your contact lenses every night in order to see consistent and reliable results. This will also mean taking the time to properly clean and care for your gas permeable lenses. Our eye care team can walk you through the care and maintenance steps that will be necessary for our office so you can leave feeling confident.
