conventional glasses & contact lenses increase myopia

Research now clearly show  conventional glasses & contact lenses causes hyperopic defocus on the peropheral retina. This induces elongation of the eye which cause myopia to progress.

AOK Eye Brace

image6

AOK (Accelerated orthokeratology or Ortho-K) is the fitting of specially designed high oxygen gas permeable contact lenses that you wear overnight.


While you are asleep, the lenses gently reshape the front surface of your eye (cornea) by gentle tear pressure that causes the migration of the corneal epithelial cells.  When you remove the lenses when you wake up, you are able to see clearly.

Clinical Studies confirms safety & efficacy of Myopia Control

image7

In 2016, Dr M Liu PhD, University of California, Berkley and Dr Xie, MD, PhD, Peking University publishes a major Review of 170 clinical studies that summarized the safety of orthoK.


"Conclusions: 

There is sufficient evidence to suggest that 

OrthoK is a safe option for myopia correction and retardation. 


Long-term success of OrthoK treatment requires a combination of 

1) proper lens fitting, 

2) rigorous compliance to lens care regimen, 

3) good adherence to routine follow-ups, and 

4) timely treatment of complications."

Multiple clinical studies clearly demonstrated AOK causes myopic defocus that slow down the progression of myopia between 50-90%

multiple research on AOK safety & efficacy

Since 1990, 

there has be an exponential number of studies 

overwhelmingly confirming 


both the 

efficacy & safety of AOK 

for myopia control

 in children

FDA approval since June 2002

Dr George Jessen created one of the earliest orthokeratology contact lens in the 1960s which he marketed as "Orthofocus" contact lens. In the 1990s, computerized corneal topography & high oxygen permeable lenses allowed orthokeratology becoming an overnight procedure that accelerated the cornea reshaping effect safely & effectively.  Hence, AOK, Accelerated Orthokeratology.


The FDA, USA Food & Drug Administration, approved the first  orthokeratology lens design made by Paragon Science in June , 2002. Prior to that, accelerated orthokeratology was an off label procedure.
