Get started fitting Ortho-K lenses for astigmatic patients to help manage their myopia.
Myopia in children is on the rise at an unprecedented pace in the US and worldwide, and orthokeratology (Ortho-K) lenses for children has shown great potential as an effective myopia management treatment.
When fitting Ortho-K lenses, however, practitioners sometimes encounter clinical uncertainties or roadblocks when it comes to patients with astigmatism. Having astigmatism does not necessarily prevent patients from wearing Ortho-K lenses. With proper tools and knowledge, the process for practitioners can be easy and patients can enjoy the many rewards.
