Orthokeratology (or Ortho-K) is a process of gently reshaping the cornea by wearing a specially shaped contact lens while asleep to be able to see without correction (glasses or contact lenses) while awake. Imagine the joy of waking up, seeing well without any corrective lenses and not having to wear a correction the rest of the day!
An FDA approved procedure, Ortho-K has been in clinical use for over 40 years and has been shown to be a safe alternative to refractive surgery for most patients. A keen proponent of holistic approach to eye care and eye health, Dr. Kotecha actively seeks ways to reduce or minimize progression of myopia at any age but especially in children and young adults.
Dr Kotecha is a member of the American Academy of Orthokeratology & Myopia Control.
