Corneal Reshaping (Ortho-K): The Near perfect Solution for Nearsightedness
Corneal reshaping (Ortho-K) is a non-surgical process which gently reshapes the eye cornea while you sleep by using specially designed vision retainer lenses. Simply sleep with your corneal reshaping lenses at night and remove them first thing in the morning and enjoy a great vision all day long without the interfering of glasses and daytime contacts. It is safe, convenient, reversible, non-surgical and FDA approved for all ages. Your days and your game will be better with corneal reshaping!
Corneal Reshaping also slows or even stop the progression of nearsightedness. This fact has been proven clinically and by many latest researches. As some children grow their eyesight may deteriorate; there is nothing more disheartening to parents than seeing their children’s prescription get worse year after year. We’ve found that nearsightedness does not progress as rapidly in children who wear Corneal Reshaping lenses.

Dr. Han’s Children: Rick & Jack
Dr. Han’s twin sons Rick and Jack both became nearsighted at a very early age. Dr. Han fit both of her sons with Corneal Reshaping Lens soon after the diagnoses and they have worn Corneal Reshaping lenses ever since.
Rick and Jack love their Corneal Reshaping lens so much because they love Hockey, Basket Ball and Swimming too, and they can participate without wearing glasses or contacts!!!
Rick and Jack’s vision, eye health and subsequent prescriptions have been very stable since they started wearing Corneal Reshaping retainer lenses nightly.
This fact is one of the major reasons Dr. Han has developed a passion for this technique and has focused a big part of her practice on helping other children through this process.
Corneal Reshaping (Ortho-K): Not New
Reshaping the cornea with contact lenses to improve vision isn’t new; some eye doctors have practiced it for decades. However, before FDA approval for overnight wear, the procedure had limited appeal. Now with safe, more oxygen permeable materials, the process has grown in effectiveness, safety and popularity.
