Orthokeratology,or Ortho-K for short, is a non-surgical alternative to LASIK. Ortho-K contact lenses are specially designed to gently reshape the curvature of the eye while sleeping at night, creating clearer vision during the day and eliminating the need for daytime glasses or contact lenses.  This is a safe, effective, and FDA-approved treatment for nearsightedness or myopia, astigmatism and presbyopia (blurred near vision). 

Dr. Cheryl Chapman is the leading orthokeratologist in the Midwest. She has attended several continuing education courses to stay on top of the latest in Ortho-K technology and provide optimal Ortho-K patient care. 

Risk factors for myopia onset and progression include:

  • AGE OF ONSET: 9 or younger

  • FAMILY HISTORY: parents, grandparents or siblings

  • RATE OF PROGRESSION: -1.00 Diopter or more per year

  • ETHNICITY: Asian heritage

  • NEAR WORK: 2 hours or more per day 

  • TIME SPENT OUTDOORS: 2 hours or less per day
