I emailed Dr. Maller and got a reply. He can indeed address big pupils
by making a larger custom orthoK lens. I will recieve more answers
tomorrow. I asked whats the largest zone he can make based on a 12mm
average cornea. If he can make 8mm zone, thats fantanstic! The least
ill accept is 7mm zone. I also asked him how much reduction of myopia
can be achieved. Maller is amazing by the way, he treated a -10 lady(I
asked him if he treated it fully) because that must be a world record!
I also think the zone to treat -10 diopters must be smaller than 5mm.
He has treated -4 diopters cylindar as well. Wow orthoK could displace
or even replace lasik if it can treat such high pescriptions! I
remember decades ago orthoK was only good up to -1 and was used mostly
by pilots to go from something like 20/30 or 20/40 to 20/20 or better.
In the last 5 years orthoK has become alot more effecient. I have been
reading about orthoK for high myopes and it looks like it has become a
reality now! Those considering lasik should try orthoK first or
instead!
