Orthokeratology/Ortho-K/OK-lens is a specialty contact lens that is worn at night to gently reshape the cornea allowing clear vision in the day time without vision correction (ie. glasses, contact lenses). These lenses are a very effective way in reducing the abnormal eyeball elongation thereby reducing myopia progression.
Atropine is safe and effective in controlling the excessive eyeball elongation. Atropine can be used on its own or in combination with the other myopia control solutions. Atropine however, does not correct vision. The blurred vision will still have to be corrected using glasses or contact lenses during the day time.
