This handy infographic will be a helpful reminder on what to look for when assessing suitability for fitting orthokeratology (OK) to slow progression of myopia. Developed by Dr Paul Gifford from Myopia Profile, and modified for Contact Lens Update in collaboration with CORE and the University of Waterloo, this guide steps you through obtaining good corneal topography images, how to assess likelihood of correcting full refraction from OK, and decision making for correcting astigmatism.
