Summary: Orthokeratology is a temporary reduction of myopia achieved by the programmed application of contact lenses to reshape the cornea. Modern orthokeratology achieves this using specially designed reverse geometry gas permeable ortho-k shaping lenses worn during sleep. Purpose: The aim of this work is to determine the orthotreatment results (one year experience). Material and methods: A total number of 28 patients (55 eyes) with myopia from -1.0 to -6.0D were examined before and after 1 year of orthokeratology reshaping. We used CKR (controlled kerato-reformation) ortholens design and EH-390 Topographer. Results: In the 3 study groups the mean refraction was -2.44D, -3.45D and -5.34D before orthotreatment and -0.15D, -0.28D and -0.56D after orthotreatment, respectively. The myopia did not change during the year. Conclusions: Orthokeratology is effective procedure, with good results of myopia correction and it probably may stabilize myopia progression.
