What Does Orthokeratology (Ortho-k) Cost?

There are numerous factors to consider in determining the cost of Ortho-k therapy.  Orthokeratology costs will vary by practitioner.   Typically corneal refractive therapy will cost much less than Lasik surgery.

Major Orthokeratology cost components include;

  • the doctor’s experience and reputation,
  • the prescription complexity,
  • whether a spare/replacement pair of Ortho-k lenses is included,
  • whether there is partial performance guarantee included and
  • the location of the eye care professionals practice.

Lasik and Orthokeratology Cost Comparison

Typical Per Eye Price Range*
Low Range            High Range
$500                      $1,000     Orthokeratology Cost
$1,000                   $2,250     Lasik Cost

Typical Price For Both Eyes*
Low Range            High Range
$1,000                  $2,000     Orthokeratology Cost
$2,000                  $4,500     Lasik Cost

$1,000                  $2,500     Typical Savings with Ortho-k
50%                        56%     Ortho-k Savings Percentage

* Typical price ranges vary based on many factors as discussed above.
Lasik costs have additional cost factors including the type of laser equipment used.

After your first year, the annual cost of corneal refractive therapy  is about the same as wearing traditional contact lenses or glasses.  Generally for both eyes, the initial exam and scheduled follow-up fitting appointments for Ortho-k ranges from $900 to over $2,000 depending upon the cost components previously mentioned.

Many eye care practitioners offer optional payment plans such as CareCredit. Consult with your eyecare practitioner for specific information on their corneal refractive therapy payment plans.

You may also want to consult with your employer about Flexible Spending Accounts. A Flexible Spending Account (FSA), (also called flex plan, reimbursement account, Flex 125, Tax Saving Plan, Medical Spending Account, a Section 125, or a Cafeteria Plan), is an employer-sponsored benefit that allows you to pay for eligible medical expenses on a pre-tax basis. Most elective procedures are covered by a Flex plan including, corneal refractive therapy.  It’s recommended you talk to your benefits manager to determine FSA qualification prior to making any allocations to your Flexible Spending Account for Ortho-k Therapy.

Attempts to reshape the cornea have been tried since contact lenses were first fit. The process, referred to as orthokeratology, would take years to complete and the results were not nearly as favorable as GVSS. For this reason, many doctors and patients elected not to participate in orthokeratology. Now with technological advancements with the diagnostic equipment used to measure the corneal shape and the materials being used to make the vision retainers, GVSS is now a viable alternative for many nearsighted or astigmatism patients.
