LASIK Vision Quality Better than Ortho-K Contacts

The quality of vision after LASIK is better than that provided by Ortho-K contact lenses. LASIK is a type of laser eye surgery that provides a method of vision correction to help people with common vision problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism see clearly at distance without being dependent on glasses or contact lenses. Ortho-K or Orthokeratology is a method of contact lens fitting used to temporarily reshape the cornea to allow people to see at distance and be independent of eyeglasses and contacts for periods of time throughout the day.

Recently researchers reporting in the journal Cornea compared the differences in visual performance between Ortho-K contact lenses and LASIK for the treatment of low-to-moderate myopia nearsightedness. The results in this study suggest that LASIK provides better vision quality outcomes than Ortho-K for the treatment of low-to-moderate myopia.
