Vision Correction with Orthokeratology

Orthokeratology, or ortho-k, represents a modern and innovative myopia management treatment. This non-surgical approach involves custom-designed, gas-permeable contact lenses that temporarily reshape the cornea. These specialized lenses work their magic overnight, gently correcting your child's vision, and are removed in the morning for clear vision during the day.

The various benefits of ortho-k make it an appealing choice for many parents.

  • Daytime Freedom from Glasses or Contacts

    Ortho-k affords your child the freedom to see clearly throughout the day without needing eyeglasses or contact lenses.

  • Slows Myopia Progression

    Research has shown that ortho-k can help curb the development of nearsightedness, potentially reducing the risk of more severe vision problems in the future.

  • Convenient and Safe

    Ortho-k lenses are a safe and versatile option for managing myopia in children of various ages. They are easy to use and maintain, providing parents peace of mind.

  • Improved Self Confidence

    Ortho-k lenses can significantly boost your child's self-confidence with clear vision without visible vision correction.

I’ve been here 3 times in the past 5 months. Once for eye exam and twice for medical issues with a... n eye (black eye skiing, scratched eye). All times staff was accommodating, friendly and patient. Wait times were reasonable and quick.

Just sharing my experience with what was called "One Hour Optical". During my time in Denver, CO. fr... om 1997 till 2019. This business which at the time had a contract with the VAMC to help veterans with exams and glasses for free. Got two pairs of glasses from them which was a pleasant experience until I moved to Minnesota in 2019. The Minneapolis VAMC has their own eye clinic and eyeglass store in the hospital itself. I like that arrangement better. But, I liked the employees at this business during my time in Denver, CO. Edit: A reply to the owner's comment. Thank you for the sentiment, but I am in Minnesota now and can't "see you soon". Lol.

The exam was very thorough, and the cost of all the proceedings was outlined before -- whether it wa... s already covered by my insurance, or it would be an extra cost. And I had the option to postpone anything that would incur in extra cost. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming.
