Glaucoma and Orthokeratology

The damage of the optic nerve due to high intraocular pressure causes the glaucoma and if it is untreated than it will progresses to vision loss with the initiation of unobserved blind spots at the edges of visual field followed by tunnel vision and finally to blindness. The causes of glaucoma include optic nerve damage along with the several underlying causes which are unknown. According to world health organization (WHO) glaucoma is the 2nd major cause of blindness across the globe.

Orthokeratology is a process that uses specially designed GP contact lenses to temporarily reshape the contour of the cornea to reduce myopia (nearsightedness). Orthokeratology is nicknamed "ortho-k" and sometimes called corneal reshaping (CR), corneal refractive therapy or vision shaping.
