Abstract: Purpose: To report the clinical performance of the orthokeratology (ortho-k) lens fitted with computer assisted system after 1-month of lens wear, in a group of children undergoing ortho-k treatment in a 2-year randomized myopic control study. Method: Children aged 6-11 years old were fitted with the ortho-k lenses using computerized fitting. The initial myopia was 4.00-0.50. D and the initial refractive astigmatism was within 1.25. D. Lens performance, in terms of centration, myopic reduction, vision, ocular health status and lens binding incidence, was evaluated at one night, one week and one month after lens wear. Only data from the right eye was presented. Results: The initial spherical equivalent refraction (SER) for the 51 subjects was -2.29 ± 0.81. D. The first fit success rate was 90%. The reduction of SER after one night and one week aftercare visit were 57% and 81%, respectively. At the one month visit, the mean reduction in SER was 89% with unaided logMAR visual acuity of 0.03 ± 0.11. Mild central corneal staining was found in 9-20% of the subjects at the aftercare visits. The incidences of lens binding at one night, one week and one month aftercare visits were 17%, 39% and 30%, respectively. Conclusions: Computer assisted system for Menicon Z Night lens fitting gave a high first fit success rate. Menicon Z Night lens was effective in myopic reduction and provided stable vision after one week of lens wear. Ocular health of the subjects after lens wear was generally unremarkable.
