In terms of safety, Ortho-k has been FDA-approved for decades in the United States, but countries in Europe and Asia have been utilizing Ortho-k for much longer. There is a reason why optometrists fit their own children with Orthokeratology. It’s also why other optometrists in the San Gabriel Valley bring their children to Lumen Optometric to be fit with our custom Ortho-K lenses!
To maintain healthy Ortho-k wear, we take great lengths to educate our patients on the proper care of your eyes and the Ortho-k lenses. After all, these are your eyes that we’ve promised to keep healthy! With personal, one-on-one training, we teach all our Ortho-k patients an easy-to-follow routine and they all do very well. If this was not the case, we certainly would not be fitting our own friends and family in this technology!
