Corrective Corneal Contouring[TM]: The Most Effective Contemporary
Ortho-K Technique

You will benefit significantly when you bring a lot more patients to
your office by offering a service that few if any of your fellow
optometrists are offering to their patients. As you, doctor, fit
Corrective Corneal Contouring[TM] contact lenses to eliminate or
significantly reduce your patients' myopic refractive errors, these
pleased patients you serve so well, will always remain in 'your'
practice; visit your office twice a year for continued care; benefit
from your professional consultation on myopia treatments, and purchase
their custom designed lenses from you.

Today there are hundreds of thousands of patients who would like their
eyes strengthened by functionally eliminating their myopia.
Unquestionably no one is happy that they are myopic and you have the
ability to easily restore them to their natural vision with contact
lenses. And most importantly, you now have the opportunity to provide
this service completely independent of third party encroachment on your
practice. Instead of watching myopes leave your practice to obtain
precarious laser surgery, you will now safely restore their maximal
vision, and remain the primary physician for myopia treatments.
Certainly, doctor, this is a specialty that will attract many new
families to your practice.

Corrective Corneal Contouring is an advanced method of Orthokeratology
that differs significantly from previous forms of Ortho-K. When you,
doctor, do C.C.C.[TM], the goal is to totally reduce a person's myopic
refractive error to functional emmetropia without predetermined limits.
You can readily accomplish this with new third generation,
multicontouring lenses. The lenses are very precisely calculated so
that you can extensively contour specific areas of the corneal surface
in an innovative and unique way. This results in a rapid reduction of
refractive error with a very clear, sphericalized visual zone; and an
induced corneal topography that remains very stable over time.

Clinically, it is evident that there are essentially two categories of
C.C.C. based on the degree of refractive error and the duration of
active treatment. When you perform intermediate level C.C.C. you will
readily correct up to 4.50 to 5.00 Diopters of myopia with mild "WR and
AR" astigmia. This contemporary treatment will allow you to rapidly
reduce the refractive error to a state of functional emmetropia within
just days or weeks. You will use two distinct lens designs to achieve
your clinical goals - the C.C.C. and H.R.E.[TM] lenses, using primarily
the former for these intermediate type corrections. At your clinical
discretion, you may target varying amounts of myopia to be corrected by
each pair of lenses. Thus 2-3 pairs of lenses will be used on average
as you correct these moderate refractive errors.

You, the orthokeratologist, will be pleased to know that in the C.C.C.
procedure, the lenses fit, center and align very readily. And today the
primary role of the doctor is to maintain that corneal alignment and
lens centration as the case progresses. The biggest advantage for you,
doctor, is that lens design calculations are done by computer software
at the laboratory all through the case. Unquestionably, it is far
easier for doctors to learn and perform Corrective Corneal Contouring
than traditional Ortho-K. And your more rapid and high success rates
are attributable to the simplicity of the system and the highly
effective lens design computations.

The Corrective Corneal Contouring treatment is a multi-stage
therapeutic process. First you will contour the corneal curvature to
return the patient to functional emmetropia or low hyperopia. This is
achieved in days or weeks. This is followed by the embedding process of
prolonged lens wear. You will prescribe a sustained lens wear schedule
which is maintained until the patient is able to consistently achieve
clear vision without lenses for a period of 8-16 hours. Once the
embedding process is completed, you will reduce the lens wear to
retainer wear - the final process, which is to determine the minimal
wear schedule that will maintain the desired vision without lenses in
place.

For advanced level Corrective Corneal Contouring, the H.R.E. lenses
have been designed to aid you in correcting 5.25 to 10.00 diopters of
myopia. To date Dr. Kearney has corrected 9.25 diopters of myopia in
responsive cases. Typically you will correct the higher refractive
errors in 3-9 months depending on corneal flexibility. H.R.E. lenses
are also used with very flat corneae or where added lens centration is
needed. These lenses differ from the C.C.C. in that they have
additional lens curvature combinations that enhance lens centration.
You may also utilize these lenses to correct myopia combined with
higher amounts of astigmia (3.00 WR or 1.75 AR and these are not
necessarily limits). And it is strongly recommended that advanced level
C.C.C. be performed primarily by orthokeratologists with both extensive
Ortho-K education and clinical experience.

To benefit your patients and your practice, doctor, do Corrective
Corneal Contouring in your office. Add this specialty now and you will
enhance your practice through a worthwhile direct reimbursement
program. You will be able to now, doctor, offer a variety of myopia
treatments to a sizeable, new ophthalmic market in your community. And
to assist you in your efforts, we have developed approved COPE courses
for you to learn the high technology of Corrective Corneal Contouring.
At your request, these course will be given at educational meetings, at
seminars or in private consultation in your office. You will, doctor,
become one of the caring specialists who strengthen your patients' eyes
- instead of their glasses.

Now I know what that orthoK practioner was talking about when he said
he corrected a -10 lady with orthoK! The new, advanced CCC was used!
She of course also had very, very responsive eyes/corneas and other
factors that allowed such a humongous correction! She must also have
gotten a small/tiny treatment zone as well. Conventional accelerated
orthoK is still good, correcting up to -6 with a tiny zone, up to -4.5
with a medium-small zone, up to -3.5 with a medium zone and smaller
amounts with an oversized zone. Still with the advances in orthoK
technology, its going to displace lasik as its safer and also
reversable. That -10 lady would be at high risk with lasik, increasing
her risk for ectasia(due to so much cornea removed) poor night
vision(due to such an oblate, aberrated cornea) and she likley would
have regressed a little and back in glasses part or full time. IOLs
would be a much better choice for such high myopia of -8 to -10 and
higher. Lasik works pretty well for -4 to -8, but can be done on low
prescriptions but why when orthoK works great up to -4 and is much
safer? Now with CCC orthoK, those with really bad eyes have an
alternative to risky lasik!

wow.
between this fantastic discovery, and the fact that you now know that
you should never look through telescopes or binoculars again, it wont
be long before your eyesight is cured!

Dear AceMan,

1. What is the cost of CCC-Ortho-K? $1,600? $2,000?

2. How long does it last?

Best,

Otis

Your learning new things too! I say nothing wrong with looking into
glasses and binoculars as long as its kept to a minimum. A few minutes
use once a day isnt enough to accelerate myopia. In fact it takes a few
months of someone in a minus lens to increase a measurable amount of
myopia.



"Dear AceMan,

Could cost $4000 because you are a -6.5 which is very high
prescription. A price of $2500 for regular orthoK for -4 was quoted. Of
course it depends on the practioner, some charge as little as $500 for
regular orthoK for low myopes of -1, others charge several thousand. I
am gonna assume itll last at least 8-12 hours, enough to get by the
day. You could realize your dream of being a pilot if CCC improves your
vision to 20/40 to pass the DMV!

Try experience. Me and my friends had their vision get worse gradually.
If someone gets worse at .75 diopters after 6 months, thats 2 months
for .25 diopter increase in myopia. Trying someone's minus lens for a
couple minutes isnt gonna do a thing. Looking at a telescope or wearing
sunglasses isnt gonna do a thing unless you do it often then over years
you may become very slightly myopic.

Dear AceMan,

Subject: Try PURE SCIENCE concerning the NATURAL EYE's behavior.

Just take a population of natural eyes.

Measure the refractive STATE of all of them.

Divide them in half. Put a -3 diopter lens on 1/2 (the test
group) and keep the other half in their previous ENVIRONMENT.

These M.O. ODs keep on insisting that a minus lens has NO
EFFECT ON ALL FUNDAMENTAL EYES. OK, that is
the NULL HYPOTHESIS.

Now test them out.

Measure the refractive states of all eyes for 12 months.

What do you think is going to be the result on the
dynamic eye?

The null hypothesis (no effect) is proven, or
the dynamic eye is proven.

The result will determine who is correct in an
accurate preception of the fudamental eye's behavior.

What, the M. O. OD hates scientific facts and results.

The, that is the majority OPINION. That is never
a scientific fact.

Do this experiment youself, AceMan, and that is
how you determine scientific reality.

Best,

Otis
