When the cornea of the eye is misshaped or deformed, as is seen in a majority of vision conditions, the incoming light or imagery is obstructed and consequently does not properly focus on the retina. This misplacement hinders the retina’s ability to transduce the information that has passed through the eye, ultimately causing a proprietary vision condition such as nearsightedness.
Traditionally, patients correct this ineptitude with eyeglasses or daytime contact lenses. If the patient wanted to eliminate the need for this eyewear, he or she would consider LASIK, a surgical procedure undergone to drastically improve natural vision.
What if the patient desired to discontinue the use of glasses or contacts but was hesitant or unable to endure the surgery? Look no further! Des Plaines Eye Care Center offers Orthokeratology as an ideal solution.
Orthokeratology offers an avenue to achieve clear, restored vision without having to experience surgery. How does it work? Patient-tailored orthokeratology contact lenses work while you sleep to reshape the cornea in order to provide you with unobstructed, sharper vision upon waking.
Is this process limited to nearsightedness? Quite the contrary. This method can treat near-sightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia. Check us out for orthokeratology in Des Plaines!
