Different Names for Orthokeratology

Orthkeratology goes by many names:

  • Accelerated Ortho-K
  • CRT – Corneal Refractive Therapy
  • Driem Lenses
  • Fargo
  • GOV- Global Orthokeratology Vision
  • GVSS – Gentle Vision Shaping System
  • Molding Lenses
  • Natural Vision Improvement
  • Night Lenses
  • Overnight Lenses
  • OCR = Overnight Corneal Reshaping
  • VST – Vision Shaping Treatment, VIP – Vision Improvement Program
  • Wave Custom Ortho-K

Various LASIK procedures are named by their developer and are often merely a variation on a theme. Likewise Ortho-K developers name their own designs. Rather than adding to the confusion, let’s just “clear” things up, get the job done and have the best outcome. We want our patients to tell all of their friends so that that they can get the benefits too.

When asking one of our 16 years old Ortho-K patients, “What do you tell your friends when they ask you what happened to your eyeglasses? Why did you stop wearing them?” He answered: “I just tell them that I have MAGIC CONTACTS!”

WAVE is a unique system that enables us to customize Ortho-K to each individual’s unique corneal shape. Each cornea is shaped differently, much as each fingerprint is unique.


Teletherapy @ Home!


Dear Valued Patient,

At Family Eye Care, the health and safety of our patients and employees is our top concern.

Our office has a long-standing practice of disinfecting all areas of our office throughout the day, and all clinic areas are disinfected prior to every patient seen.

As always during the peak of flu season, and with the growing concerns around the Coronavirus, we have taken extra measures to increase frequent cleaning and have provided additional training and precautions to our staff to help keep their health and yours safe.

As a reminder, if you have fallen ill, have traveled abroad, or had close contact with someone who has traveled abroad within the past 14 days and are due to be seen for an appointment, please let our office know. We will be happy to change your appointment to ensure the safety of our patients and staff.

Feel free to contact us with any questions. Thank you.

Family Eye Care Team
