Ortho-k for Athletes: Enhancing Performance and Vision

(281) 242-2020

Get the Edge with Ortho-k

Orthokeratology, commonly referred to as ortho-k, is not just a solution for managing myopia but also a groundbreaking vision enhancement technique for athletes. This revolutionary method, often referred to as "overnight vision correction," has become increasingly popular among athletes who seek clear vision without the encumbrance of eyeglasses or contact lenses on the sports field.

A Clear Vision of Athletic Success

Athletes rely on their vision for optimal performance. Whether you're an aspiring basketball player, a dedicated swimmer, or a passionate soccer player, you understand that clear and unobstructed vision is paramount in sports. The ability to track moving objects, maintain spatial awareness, and make precise judgments in a fraction of a second can be the difference between success and failure.

Ortho-k offers athletes a remarkable advantage. It works by gently reshaping the cornea while you sleep, temporarily correcting your vision. When you wake up, you'll enjoy crisp and clear vision throughout the day without visual aids. For athletes, this can make a world of difference.

The Benefits of Ortho-k for Athletes

In recent years, contact lenses have emerged as a promising avenue for myopia control:

  • Improved Performance:

    Athletes often perform at their best when they feel completely in tune with their bodies. Ortho-k enables you to focus entirely on your sport without distractions or discomfort from eyeglasses or contact lenses.

  • Peripheral Vision

    Sports activities demand excellent peripheral vision. With the benefit of ortho-k, you can experience an expanded field of view, allowing you to react quickly to your surroundings and competitors.

  • Consistency

    One of the challenges athletes face is maintaining consistent performance. Ortho-k ensures you have the same crystal-clear vision every time you step onto the field, regardless of the circumstances.

  • Reduced Risk of Eyewear-Related Injuries

    Eyeglasses and traditional contact lenses can break or dislodge during physical activities, potentially leading to eye injuries. Ortho-k eliminates this risk, allowing athletes to focus on their performance.

Dr. Walls is an amazing eye doctor who specializes in fitting damaged eyes like mine with Scleral co... ntact lenses. These specialists are very hard to find and Dr. Walls is amazing. Theresa, along with the rest of the staff are wonderful to deal with. If you need an outstanding eye doctor that specializes in Scleral contact lenses, and want to get top-shelf service from a friendly staff, this is the place to go.

Also, the staff are nice and helpful, and I want to give a special shoutout to Sylvester! I had a problem with my lenses order initially, but he went above and beyond to make sure the issue is fixed and that I am a satisfied customer. Overall, I've had a positive experience and would recommend!

I have an eye diease called Keratoconus. I've literally been all over Houston to different doctors f... or the past year and nine months trying to get a contact to fit my irregular shaped corneal. It was at the point to where nothing worked. I was making plans on a corneal transplant until Dr. Goosey referred me to Dr. Arnold he said there's a lens called the EyePrintPRO I want see if Dr. Arnold can fit you. I made the appointment and they made a mode of my eye it took several visit and I thought this is never going to work. I received my lens last Saturday it's a true miracle!!! I'm over the moon happy I was reading the eye chart 20/80 before my EyePrintPRO now I can read 20/25! I can't Thank You enough you have changed my life I had major depression with my eye disease and even cried on a couple of visits now I have tears of joy! Thank You so much...
