    Understanding How Orthokeratology Works

    Last updated 9 months ago

    When most people think about modifying their vision, they think of popular surgical options like LASIK. However, did you know that there are other non-surgical choices available? Orthokeratology offers a vision correction alternative that can be used to treat nearsightedness, astigmatism, hyperopia, and presbyopia. Before scheduling an appointment with your optician, learn more about this exciting option.

    Overview
    Orthokeratology is a common treatment used by opticians who specialize in contact lenses fittings. Specially designed, gas-permeable (GP) contact lenses are used to gently reshape the surface of the cornea. The lenses are worn during the night while you sleep, and once they are removed in the morning, they can offer clear vision all day long without the use of contact lenses or glasses.

    Process
    If your optician feels that orthokeratology may be a good fit for you, he or she will prescribe specially designed GP lenses for use at night. Over the next two to three weeks, the lenses will gradually change the shape of your eye surface. During this time, because your vision will be changing, you will need to wear soft disposable lenses during the day. Once the initial treatment is over, you will just need to use your lenses at night to maintain their effects. You will also need to schedule regular appointments with your optician to monitor their fit and to help ensure that your eyes are healthy.

    Uses
    Candidates for orthokeratology include adults under the age of 40 and children over the age of eight. Orthokeratology is particularly appropriate for individuals who participate in sports or for those who work in dirty, dusty environments that can interfere with traditional contact use. Because the results of orthokeratology are similar to those of LASIK, this treatment strategy is also great for children or teens who are not yet eligible for LASIK.

    To find out if orthokeratology may be appropriate for you, contact 10/10 Optics. Our experienced and professional team of optometrists and opticians can help you care for and protect your vision. Call our Manhattan-based practice at (888) 508-4018 today to learn more.

    What Happens During a Contact Lens Exam?

    Last updated 9 months ago

    If you are interested in contact lenses, your first step will be to schedule a contact lens exam.

    During the exam, you optometrist will ask you to look through a refractor that will allow him or her to present different lenses to you. Using a series of charts, your optician will ask you to evaluate which lenses result in the clearest picture. If you already have contact lenses, the refraction will be done with your lenses in place to determine if a prescription adjustment is needed. The optician will also evaluate the overall health of your eyes to help ensure that your eyes are well enough to support contact lens use. To learn more about what to expect at a contact lens appointment, watch this short video from 10/10 Optics.

    10/10 Optics offers superior eye care in Manhattan. Contact us at (888) 508-4018 today to schedule an appointment with one of our trained optometrists and opticians. We also offer new and trendy eyewear fitted just for you.
