Who Is a Candidate for Ortho-k?

(407) 656-3755

Are You Considering Ortho-k Lenses?

Orthokeratology, often called ortho-k, is a non-surgical vision correction method that has gained popularity in recent years. It involves the use of specially designed gas-permeable contact lenses to temporarily reshape the cornea, thereby providing clear vision throughout the day without the need for eyeglasses or standard contact lenses. This revolutionary approach has shown promise in myopia management and has become preferable for those seeking independence from daytime visual aids.

However, ortho-k might not be suitable for everyone. The effectiveness and safety of this treatment rely on several factors, including your eye health, prescription, and lifestyle.

Ortho-k and Myopia: A Clear Solution for Nearsightedness

Ortho-k is primarily designed to correct nearsightedness, also known as myopia. You could be a potential candidate for this treatment if you have myopia and find seeing objects at a distance challenging. Ortho-k lenses can effectively reduce this condition, giving you clear vision throughout the day.

However, it's important to note that ortho-k is most effective for people with mild to moderate myopia. If a prescription falls within this range, there's a higher likelihood of achieving satisfactory results with ortho-k lenses. These lenses may be less effective for individuals with high levels of myopia or other complex vision problems.

  • Contact Lens Intolerance or Discomfort

    Ortho-k may be a suitable alternative if you've experienced discomfort or intolerance with standard contact lenses. These specially designed lenses are worn overnight while you sleep, so you don't have to worry about daytime discomfort or dryness often associated with traditional contact lenses.

  • Active Lifestyles and Sports Enthusiasts

    Ortho-k is an excellent option for individuals with active lifestyles or athletes. You can enjoy your favorite sports activities with unhindered vision without needing glasses or daytime contact lenses. Athletes and outdoor enthusiasts often find ortho-k lenses particularly convenient.

  • Children and Adolescents

    Ortho-k can be a valuable option for children and adolescents with myopia. Slowing myopia's progression during these formative years can have long-term benefits for eye health. If your child has myopia, speak to your Macali Eye Clinic eye doctor about ortho-k as a potential treatment option.

  • Daily Lens Care and Compliance

    Successful ortho-k treatment requires a commitment to daily lens care and compliance with your eye care professional's recommendations. You'll need to clean, store the lenses correctly, and follow the prescribed wearing schedule.

Discovered this place on the fly, and found that the staffs were very friendly and helpful. I needed... a nose pad repair on one of my branded sunglasses, and they were able to find the right pieces to repair immediately. Highly satisfied with the service and recommend this place!

Exceptional customer service sets this eye care store miles apart from any others I've visited! A h... uge shoutout to Manager Andy, who has not only demonstrated an high level of kindness and helpfulness, but has also gone above and beyond to rectify a small mishap with an old pair of frames. The dedication and outstanding treatment I received from him and his team have not only resolved the issue, but have also secured them a customer for life!

Highly recommend!!! This was the best experience I have ever had in eye care. I came in with a not e... asy situation and Andy and Maray were beyond patient, helpful, and informative. They were recommended by a friend and they have now gained a new costumer today. I will continue to recommend them to everyone I know. This is the best customer service I have received in a very long time and cannot wait to pick up my new glasses!

My partner and I have been clients of Macali Eye Clinic for over 15 years. From scheduling, to exam... s, to eyeglass selections and fitting, everyone there is professional, competent, and genuinely accommodating. And, Dr. Macali has always been thorough with his exam assessments, along with a positive and comfortable bedside manner. Although we don’t have eye insurance, I highly recommend the full exam, because it’s more thorough and a good value, knowing that the annual exam results are also updated in our patient records. As a professional interior designer, I find the physical environment at this facility not only beautiful and carefully thought through, but also stress-free, calming and pleasant. For any type of small business to excel in all of these areas, seems rare these days. Thank you EVERYONE for making our eye exam experience worthwhile and positive… every time!

(Translated by Google) The attention of the boy who speaks Spanish was excellent, and Doctor Noble w... as very sweet. I am glad that there are people who speak Spanish, so we feel calmer and can communicate when we take the exams 🙂 (Original) La atencion del muchacho que habla español , fue excelente, y la Doctora Noble muy dulce , me alegro que hayan personas que hablen español , asi nos sentimos mas tranquilos y podemos comunicarnos cuando nos hacemos los examenes 🙂

Top notch eye care! The staff are very professional, and thorough. They have a full suite of equip... ment and conduct a comprehensive eye exam, and prescription determination. They are a bit more expensive than discount optometrists, but you get what you pay for.
