What Is The Process For Getting An Ortho-K Fitting?
At our La Mesa, CA Ortho-K clinic, patients undergo a full Ortho-K assessment before any fitting is made. Our Ortho-K specialists, Jamie Starr Peters O.D. and Caroline Guerrero Cauchi O.D., will assess the health of your eye, your exact corrective prescription, and whether or not you are a good candidate.
Once you have been approved and assessed, the Ortho-K process works more or less in three stages:
The Ortho-K Fitting
Vision Solutions uses advanced technology to map out your specific corneal topography in order to get the exact custom shape of the lenses required to best match your eyes.
Diagnostic Shaping Lens Trial
After the initial fitting, patients will be provided with detailed instruction on how to insert, remove, and care for the Ortho-K lenses. After a few brief intervals, Our optometrists will perform check-ups to evaluate changes in refraction and corneal topography. We will also verify that the lenses continue to fit properly and effectively. Minor adjustments will be made where required.
Long-Term Ortho-K Treatment
Once we have established that the initial fitting is successful, you will be required to occasionally have the progress of the Ortho-K assessed with an occasional long-term checkup. Any minor changes or adjustments can be made in order to ensure maximal comfort and success.
