Orthokeratology is defined as the use of custom designed (as per the patient’s needs) and fitted contact lenses that are used to improve vision. This is achieved by temporarily reshaping the patient’s cornea. Majority of these novel ortho-k lenses are worn at night, during the sleep cycle, to reshape the front surface of the eye. It is worth highlighting that the United States Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) has recently stated that ortho-k lenses are safe for use by patients belonging to different age groups, including young children and adults, as long as the specialized contact lenses are made from certain highly gas-permeable materials. Further, as per a recent study, 80% of patients who are treated with orthokeratology are successful.
These promising results, combined with increasing FDA approvals and multiple initiatives by the developers engaged in this industry are some of the drivers in this domain. Some of the recent developments within the orthokeratology lens market include:
- Signing of partnership agreement between Johnson & Johnson Vision Care and Menicon for the development of therapeutic contact lenses in order to curb the rising progression of Myopia in Children.
- Acquisition of DreamLens by Truform Optics, to augment the company’s orthokeratology product pipeline.
