If you have myopia but don’t want to wear eyeglasses during the day, orthokeratology, also known as ortho-k, may be for you. It's an eye care solution that can help give you the gift of clear vision without the hassle of glasses or contacts during the day. If you live in West Des Moines, IA, and are interested in finding out more about this technology, visit us at StylEyes to get eye care from an “optometrist near me.”


Understanding Orthokeratology

Ortho-k uses a set of special contact lenses that temporarily reduces the effect of myopia (nearsightedness). These contact lenses gently reshape the cornea to help correct vision and they are removed when the patient wakes up in the morning, allowing for clear vision throughout the day.

Monitoring and Check-ups

We will monitor your eyes and the progress of the treatment. Regular check-ups with an eye doctor on our optometrist team can help ensure that the lenses are fitting properly and that your eyes are responding well to the treatment. Regular checkups let us catch and fix any issues early.

Individual Considerations

It's important to note that the effectiveness of any vision correction procedure can vary from person to person. An eye doctor on our team will assess your individual eye health and determine whether ortho-k is a suitable option for you. When deciding if ortho-k is right for you, an eye doctor on our team will pay close attention to your eye health and any eye conditions that could interfere with the function of the lenses.
