Ortho-k for Athletes: Enhancing Performance and Vision

(970) 224-9880

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.

I recently had the pleasure of visiting Dr. Kelly for an eye exam, and I must say, the experience wa... s nothing short of exceptional. From the moment I stepped into the clinic, I was greeted with warmth and professionalism. The atmosphere was welcoming, and the staff were incredibly helpful, making the entire process smooth and comfortable. Dr. Kelly stands out not just for her expertise but also for her ability to connect with patients on a personal level. She took the time to thoroughly explain each step of the examination, ensuring that I was comfortable and informed throughout. Her attention to detail and genuine concern for my eye health was evident, making me feel valued and well-cared for. What impressed me most was Dr. Kelly’s dedication to using the latest technology and her knowledge to provide the best possible care. She answered all my questions with patience and provided me with valuable advice on maintaining my eye health. I left the clinic feeling reassured and well-informed about my eye health. It’s clear that Dr. Kelly and her team go above and beyond for their patients, and I cannot recommend them highly enough. If you’re looking for an optometrist who truly cares about your well-being, Dr. Kelly is the one to see.

I had an eye emergency and tried to get in everywhere in town with no luck until I called Mountain V... iew. Even though they had no availability got me in last minute on a Friday afternoon and took great care of me. They were professional and thorough and I would recommend them to anyone who asked. I am incredibly grateful for their compassion and willingness to help.

Unfortunately, Mountain View isn't in my insurance network, however, I wanted to give these guys a g... ood review solely based on the through-the-roof customer service I received from their receptionist, Katie. That quality of service seems far too uncommon these days, so credit where it's due. Thank you, Katie!

I had interactions with 3 employees, Tasha who set me up in my room and initial assessment, then Dr.... kelly for the eye exam, and Isabel to help me pick out frames. Incredible experience, super knowledgeable Staff and incredibly friendly and patient. Out of 15 years of going to eye doctors this is hands down the best experience I've had. On top of it all, their prices are phenomenal and many discounts offered. I'll definitely be using them for as long as I'm in Colorado. A++++!

I worked with the Abel’s for 2 years in the past, and would recommend this optometric clinic over ... any other in Northern Colorado. Their equipment rivals the Eye Center of Northern Colorado, and the experience of Dr. Amy helped diagnose me with vision focus issues. They even offer vision therapy, which is incredibly find, as well. I’ll continue going here for as long as I live in Fort Collins/Loveland.
