Myopia correction without contact lens or lasik

Today learned of a new technological stuff called Ortho-K (orthokeratology or Corneal Refractive Therapy) which I have been given to understand as being able to correct my myopia (short-sightedness) without eye glasses, without contact lens, without lasik. It is a non-surgical procedure to reshape the corneal. This diagram would summarize how it is done:

I would dearly love to get it for myself so I can rid of this nuisance called optical eyeglass or spectacles. I dread people making cuts on my cornea and don't fancy a contact lens in contact with my eye, well, at least not in the long term. Unfortunately Orthokeratology is too late for me already with children and grandchildren in tow.

Ortho-K is only suitable for:

  • Children from the age of 6 years old
  • Children with Myopia up to -6.00 DS and Cylinder up to -2.00DC
  • Children who always breaks / cracks or loose their glasses
  • Children who feel uncomfortable with eye glasses
  • Children who’s myopia keep increasing yearly
  • Parent’s who wants to control the rate of myopia increase
  • Kids who are active in sports and finds wearing glasses a nuisance.

Never mind, it may benefit my grandchildren or other kids with myopia. You can bet your life that I will let my children and grandchildren any parents with kids that may benefits from Ortho-K knows about it.

  1. ortho-k contact lenses is the nonsurgical way to vision correction. One needs to wear the ortho-k throughout the night while you sleep. And after removing it in the morning, your corneas will retain their shape which will give you a clear and comfortable vision throughout the entire day.
