Orthokeratology is a non-surgical corneal reshaping of the eye using night-time custom contact lenses; this process eliminates the need for glasses or daytime contact lenses. 


Ortho-K lenses are an excellent alternative for those who are uncomfortable with the risks associated with laser eye surgery.  The procedure is reversible and non-invasive.  Our comprehensive eye consultation will determine if you are a candidate for this procedure.  Visit our FAQs page for more information.

"I was looking for an alternative to daytime contact lenses and lasik, when a friend recommended Dr Kim and ortho-K lenses.  I love not having to worry about contact lenses making my eyes dry and not having to wear glasses.  Dr Kim is friendly and knowledgable, I highly recommend him."                                                                                                                            J.S.      Nov 2014
