You’ve made the decision to undergo LASIK laser eye surgery, and you are in good company. To date, more than 40 million LASIK procedures have been performed worldwide, making it the most popular elective surgical eye procedure in humans in the world. LASIK makes it possible for those patients that choose it to experience clear, concise vision with little or no need for prescription vision aids such as glasses or contact lenses.
Orthokeratology, also called ortho-k, is an innovative new treatment that enables patients to see clearly without glasses, contact lenses or laser eye surgery. It involves the use of bespoke designed and fitted contact lenses to temporarily reshape the cornea to improve patient vision.
