Myopia Management

Modern medical research has proved that Orthokeratology is one of the safest and most effective methods of reducing the progression of myopia in children's youth. Children's myopic population is increasing in Asia, and many Ortho-k lenses are prescribed to suppress myopia progression. 


What is Orthokeratology?

Orthokeratology is a non-surgical myopia correction method

The lens used in Orthokeratology treatment is called an Ortho-k lens or OK lens. It is a Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) lens and is usually worn at night and removed the next morning. It changes the shape of the cornea and corrects your vision for a certain period so you can have a comfortable vision without wearing anything after removing the Ortho-k lens. The correction is temporary therefore you have to wear the Ortho-k lens on a regular basis. On the other hand, you can quit the treatment anytime and the shape of the cornea is restored.

Features of "Breath-O Correct"

High Oxygen Permeability

Oxygen is essential to the health of your cornea. Ortho-k lens is usually worn when you sleep, therefore the material of the Ortho-k lens has to be oxygen permeable. Our material has remarkably high oxygen permeability compared with others, so it is very safe to be used overnight.


High Durability

Usually, Ortho-k lens is made by hard but fragile materials, so sometimes it brakes when you are wearing or washing it. However, our material has high durability as shown in the diagram on the right. So, there is no worry about cracking just by applying a little force, it is highly safe and easy to handle.


Lens Design

The shape of the cornea is different between Western people and Asian people. Usually, the cornea of Western people is more protruding compared to Asian people. Therefore, Ortho-k designed for Westerners is hard to be prescribed for Asians. On that point, “Breath-O Correct” is designed for Asians, so it is easier to fit and gives a better effect on Asians.
