Abstract

Purpose: Orthokeratology is a technique of temporarily correcting myopia and slowing its progression by gently flattening the central cornea [7-9]. The goal of this article is to analyze the Ortho-k evolution, parameters selection, designs, and fitting of ortho-k lenses, the role of Ortho-k as well as its influence on the corneal surface, to temporarily correct myopia and slow its advancement.

Keywords: Orthokeratology; Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT); Vision Shaping Treatment (VST)
