Summary: Orthokeratology is the procedure using reverse-geometry gas-permeable lenses for the temporary reduction of myopia. The aim of the study was to evaluate efficacy of low to moderate myopia reduction with high gas-permeable Rinehart -Reeves Ortho-K lenses. 9 patients (18 eyes) aged 18-56 years, with spherical equivalent from -0.75D to -4.5D were enrolled to the study. Baseline examination included visual acuity, refraction, baseline corneal topography, tear film analysis, biomicroscopy. Ortokeratology was performed according to the fitting procedure. The follow-up time ranged from 2 to 8 months - visual acuity, refraction and corneal topography was examined. In all eyes improvement in visual acuity was observed, in 16 eyes achieving 0.8 - 1.0. Ortholenses have been well tolerated. There have been no serious complications during follow-up. Orthokeratology could be an effective alternative method of myopia correction.
