This non-permanent solution allows an easy switch back to conventional eyewear or consideration of LASIK later on. Our goal is your daily comfort, and our dedicated doctors are here to guide you through the process. To explore the potential benefits, schedule a consultation at Art of Optiks, where we take pride in personalized care and years of experience in Long Lake. Your journey to enhanced vision and comfort begins with us.

What is Corneal Refractive Therapy?

Embark on a vision transformation with corneal refractive therapy, also known as Ortho-K, at our practice. We’re genuinely passionate about providing a non-invasive solution to improve your vision. Our dedicated eye specialists use rigid, gas-permeable contact lenses to gently reshape your cornea, addressing your unique needs, be it myopia or occasional astigmatism.


Imagine wearing the lenses overnight, subtly molding your cornea while you sleep. Upon waking, the lenses are removed, unveiling clear vision throughout the day, free from contacts or glasses. Our skilled eye physicians conduct a thorough eye exam, tailoring the corneal reshaping lenses to your specific requirements. Your genuine satisfaction and visual well-being are our top priorities on this authentic journey to a clearer and brighter future.

Children and Teenagers

Navigating the challenges of wearing glasses at a young age can be tough, especially when your child’s vision is changing rapidly. Concerned parents often worry about the ongoing changes and the potential need for stronger prescriptions as their children grow. Enter Corneal Refractive Therapy, a promising treatment option for children, renowned for its reported ability to slow or even prevent the progression of myopia or nearsightedness. Parents have found that children opting for Corneal Refractive Therapy experience less vision decline compared to those relying on glasses or contact lenses.


For teenagers engrossed in contact sports like football or hockey, Corneal Refractive Therapy proves to be a game-changer. If your student-athlete shows a dip in performance during crucial games or mentions difficulty seeing the whiteboard in class, our doctors suggest exploring Corneal Refractive Therapy as a viable alternative. It’s not just about vision correction; it’s about enhancing your child’s overall experience, both on and off the field.


Bid farewell to the inconvenience of traditional eyeglasses with Corneal Refractive Therapy – a cutting-edge solution perfectly tailored for those with active lifestyles or working in challenging environments. Designed to eliminate the hindrance of glasses or contacts, this innovative approach is particularly beneficial for adults who enjoy riding, swimming, skiing, golfing, or biking.


Beyond recreational activities, Corneal Refractive Therapy extends its advantages to professionals working in dusty or unclean conditions. It’s the go-to choice for those seeking comfort while managing allergies, dry eyes, or other eye disorders. Experience the versatility of Corneal Refractive Therapy, where clear vision meets convenience and comfort. Join us on a journey where daily activities are enhanced and visual comfort is prioritized.

What to Expect

Once our doctors determine your eligibility for Corneal Refractive Therapy, we employ a corneal topographer to measure the curvatures of your corneas. This painless procedure, lasting just a few minutes, generates a topographical map of your eye’s surface. After a thorough review of the measurement results, our doctors curate custom lenses tailored specifically for you. In certain cases, a set of up to three lenses may be necessary to achieve the desired prescription.

Initially, you may be aware of the presence of the lenses before falling asleep, but as time progresses, they become increasingly comfortable. Eventually, you’ll reach a point where you are no longer conscious of the lenses in your eyes. It’s a gradual process designed to ensure your comfort and seamless integration into your nightly routine.



Beyond the liberation from traditional glasses or daytime contacts, our patients have generously shared numerous additional benefits experienced with Corneal Refractive Therapy:

Improved Image Sharpness and Clarity

The lenses employed in Corneal Refractive Therapy are crafted to reshape your corneas by smoothing out irregular curves. This process ensures that incoming light rays are more evenly distributed, leading to sharper images and enhanced clarity.

Instantaneous Effects

Feel the difference in vision from the first night with Ortho-K lenses — a unique awakening of clarity when you wake up and remove them. Corneal Refractive Therapy isn’t a permanent solution; providing the freedom to choose. Whether returning to traditional eyewear or considering LASIK in the future, it’s a distinct and personal journey of vision improvement.

Feeling of Normalcy

The Ortho-K lenses are exclusively worn at night while you sleep, eliminating the need for traditional eyewear during the day. This newfound freedom allows you to navigate your daily activities with enhanced vision and a heightened sense of normalcy.

Enhanced Quality of Life

Corneal Refractive Therapy brings an improvement to your quality of life, offering a notably low-risk procedure compared to alternative corrective methods. This translates to the ability to uphold your overall health, enhance daily task efficiency, and see the world with improved clarity. It’s a subtle yet impactful enhancement designed to elevate your daily experience.

Are You a Candidate?

Our doctors will check if Corneal Refractive Therapy suits you during your regular eye exam. It’s a simple assessment during your routine visit, ensuring your eyes are healthy and you’re currently dependent on glasses or contacts. If you’re someone with an active lifestyle, enjoy playing sports, or work in a dusty environment, Corneal Refractive Therapy might be a good fit. Unlike LASIK, it’s a temporary solution with minimal risks. And the best part? If you decide to go back to glasses or contacts, it’s as simple as stopping the use of the lenses. It’s a practical and personal approach to improving your vision.
