Did You Know That Myopia Is Skyrocketing in the US & Canada?

50% of the global population is expected to be myopic by 2050.

Not only does it cause nearsightedness and make it harder to see far away objects, but myopia is also associated with other conditions, such as: 

  • Retinal atrophy
  • Macular degeneration
  • Higher risk of glaucoma
  • Greater likelihood of retinal detachment
  • Lattice degeneration

That's why it is critical to do something about your myopia right away!


How Orthokeratology Slows Myopia Progression

Imagine waking up every morning with clear and sharp vision. Thanks to these specialty lenses, you don’t have to wear glasses or contacts during the day, and best of all — this treatment is surgery-free!

Moreover, Ortho-K slows or halts eye elongation in children and teens, which radically reduces the risk of myopia progression!

Children and adults with myopia can use Ortho-K lenses to reshape the cornea. Simply insert at night before going to bed and remove them in the morning to see clearly.

Here's How Ortho-K Works

  • Worn While You Sleep

    Insert these custom-designed gas permeable lenses at night before going to bed.

  • Change the Shape of the Cornea

    Ortho-K lenses reshape your cornea overnight so you can see clearly the following day!

  • Enjoy Clear Vision the Next Day

    Remove the lenses in the morning and see clearly during the day, without the need for glasses or contact lenses.

  • Slow Myopia Progression

Dr. Quinton and Jules truly made for a wonderful experience at HD Eye Care. They made me feel comfor... table and listened to my concerns regarding my current prescription. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Dr. Quinton is awesome! She is very thorough and explains everything as she is doing the exam. The e... ntire office has great customer service. Always kind and prompt. I have never waited more than a few minutes for my appointment. They have high end equipment which makes the exam that much better. I highly recommend Highlands Ranch HD Eye Care.

We checked out HD eye care because my boyfriend had a really bad experience with his previous eye do... ctor. On the day of his appointment, there was a blizzard. We called and told them we might be late, and they were so pleasant about it. Upon walking in, they were just grateful we got there in one piece. The staff was so friendly, it kind of shocked me because all we have ever had were bad experiences. They also had such an amazing selection of frames. Dr. Quintin was so kind, knowledgeable, and really took the time to get his Rx right. Another thing that we loved was that we only payed for an eye exam; Dr. Quintin let my boyfriend take home a pair of contacts to try before he committed to purchasing a year supply. This meant the world to us being on a fixed income, as his previous eye doctor never got his script right; in the past, he payed for contacts that weren’t even his correct prescription. The fact that she let him take them home to try and make sure they were perfect meant the world to us. I loved Dr. Quintin so much that now I’M switching eye doctors to see her. We look forward to seeing her for years to come.

Everyone there is so nice! I was joking and laughing with them as soon as I walked in. I was given ... excellent service, and best of all, I can see again!! No more eye fatigue, sitting at my desk all day staring at a computer. Super cute glasses, so many to choose from. Hannah was so patient with me as I tried on darn near every pair of glasses until I found the right ones. Highly recommend.
- Oct. 11, 2023
Went to this office for the first time the other day after our previous optometrist closed. The staf... f, technicians, and Dr. Jacobs were all very kind and knowledgeable and I felt very well cared for. While I didn't get glasses from the office, they did seem to have a very big selection. Glad to be going here!

Ortho-K FAQs

Am I a candidate for Ortho-K?

Most people with mild to moderate myopia, with mild astigmatism and some cases of presbyopia are good candidates for Ortho-K. Children over the age of 8 and young adults who want to be free of glasses and contacts but who are not good candidates for refractive surgery due to age or other reasons (i.e., severe dry eyes, high costs, health risks) often are good candidates. Those who lead active lifestyles and who participate in contact sports also benefit from Ortho-K.

Can I use Ortho-K if I have astigmatism?

Our practice has seen fantastic results in patients with mild astigmatism, but high astigmatism is normally more complex in the design and fit. We can design a mold for your specific cornea, but it will depend on the individual case. An in-person consultation and eye evaluation at Highlands Ranch HD Eye Care in Highlands Ranch will allow us to better determine whether it's feasible.

How long does it take for Ortho-K to work?

Our patients consistently report improved vision after using Ortho-K. Some patients can experience perfect vision after a day or two of overnight Ortho-K. But higher prescriptions can take 2 or more weeks for maximum correction. Keep in mind that the refractive state regresses to pretreatment levels once the lens is no longer worn.

Can I use Ortho-K lenses if I have dry eye syndrome?

Ortho-K lenses don't aggravate dry eyes, since tear evaporation, a main cause of dry eye, doesn't occur when the eyes are closed during sleep. However, those with severe dry eyes may apply artificial tears or other drops before inserting Ortho-K lenses at night. Dry eyes resulting from arthritis or collagen-vascular disease may interfere with this treatment, but this can be determined during the eye doctor's assessment.

Does Ortho-K Hurt?

Ortho-K lenses do not hurt and should not hurt. Certain people may feel a slight foreign body sensation, but with time, the eyes become [desensitized] to the lenses.
