Who Is a Candidate for Ortho-k?

(301) 869-4070

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 Montgomery Village Eye Center 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.

I have seen many eye doctors in my life and never had the right prescriptions for my glasses. My rig... ht eye has different sight than my left. Dr Miller took her time checked my eyes and for the first time in my life I can see clearly. I am so glad to found this eye doctor. Last but not least, the workers from the front desk to the techs were very helpful and caring. It was my first time to come to this eye clinic I got lost and was late for my appointment after driving for 40 miles to get to their office. I was worried I will not be seen and will not have my eye exam. I called in a panic to ask them their location not only they guide me to their direction, I was able to see the doctor. As anyone can witness, it is rare to find people who are caring. These group of people are very unique. Thank you for being human.

Upon retirement my husband and I decided to try a new eye care facility closer to our current locati... on. After trying 3 other doctors, we are driving 2 hours, one way, to be able to get the fantastic service from Dr. Rubin and Dr. Miller. It's more than worth it.

I was a patient of Dr. Miller when I lived in Gaithersburg, MD a long time ago. However, I moved to ... PG County and have seen 3 different eye clinics but none of them have been able to match up to the level of service or care that Dr. Miller and her staff provide. Which is why after 5 years, I have returned to her office. I'm living in Upper Marlboro MD but Dr. Miller is worth the drive. Plus, she has state-of-the-art equipment!!!

My experience with the Montgomery Village Eye Center was nothing but a great one. All the associates... were very welcoming with broad smiles on their faces. The office spaces were nice and clean and my exam was done in a timely manner. This is a must visit Eye Center for anybody with Optometry needs.

I've never been to an eye doctor who could explain, in a succinct understandable manner, more about... how my eyes are behaving than Dr. Gabriella Miller. Other eye doctors had been reluctant to switch me to soft lenses but she was able to put me into lenses that helped my vision immediately and also were more comfortable. Her staff also helped me with glasses that were affordable and attractive. I highly recommend Dr. Miller.
