Orthokeratology/Corneal Refractive Therapy
What if you could correct your nearsightedness in a matter of days? Without surgery? While you slept?
It may sound too good to be true, but that’s exactly what orthokeratology makes possible. Orthokeratology (or ortho-K) is a revolutionary non-surgical process which treats nearsightedness by using contact lenses to flatten the cornea. At South Jersey Eye Associates, we specialize in a form of ortho-K called Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT). Painless, fast and safe, CRT is a non-surgical alternative for patients interested in correcting their myopia.
Best of all, CRT lenses allow for the possibility of overnight corneal reshaping while you sleep, minimizing the disruption of your daily routine.
