Caring for Your Ortho-K Lenses

Inserting your lenses:

Removing & cleaning your lenses:

To see these methods in action, feel free to check out this video!


Important to Remember: 

  • Fill lens with solution to the brim prior to insertion.
  • In order for the treatment to work, it is important to have a minimum of 6-8 hours of sleep every night.
  • Make sure that the lenses are always centered correctly. If not centered the following morning, re-center before removal and contact us for follow up to check lens fit.
  • Lens must be moving before removal. If the lens is not moving, add a few tears until they move freely with the blink of the eye.
  • Stop lens wear if you experience persistent discomfort or redness.
  • Always check your contacts for any cracks, chips or scratches to the lenses. If any damage is found, stop use of lenses and contact our office about a replacement set.
