Imagine a vision correction that works while you sleep. Imagine waking up to clear, comfortable vision in the morning, without the need to wear specs or contact lenses during the day. Well, imagine no more. Introducing… Ortho-K
Live for the WOW
Orthokeratology (ortho-k) corrects your vision while you sleep. Simply remove the custom lenses upon waking and enjoy a world of clear, natural vision throughout the day.
Ortho-K is safe and effective and has transformed the lives of thousands of people across the world.
Ortho-K is perfect for people who suffer from mild to moderate short-sightedness and wants to enjoy clear, natural vision all day, without the use of contact lenses or specs.
Unlike laser eye surgery, Ortho-K is non-invasive and reversible, making it the best choice for anyone who has considered refractive surgery, but are concerned with the risks.
Without the limitations that come with soft lenses, Ortho-K is ideal for people who want to enjoy an active lifestyle.
Ortho-K lenses gently reshape the curvature of the eye overnight, creating a slightly flatter cornea. The cornea plays a key role in creating a sharp, optical focus.
Ortho-K lenses use a tried-and-tested design and is only ever performed by a trained optical specialist, which is non-invasive, comfortable and safe.
Is Ortho-K for Me?
Ortho-K is recommended for patients with mild to moderate myopia:
- A spherical spectacle description of -0.75D up to -5.00D
- Astigmatism of up to -2.50D.
Ortho-K is perfect for people who:
- Want clear natural vision all day
- Find that soft contact lenses aren’t comfortable
- Are involved in sport and other recreational activities
- Have considered laser surgery but are concerned with the risks
Ortho-K for Children
Numerous studies have indicated that Ortho-K lenses can dramatically slow the progression of short-sightedness in children – subsequently reducing the risk of developing associated problems, such as glaucoma, in adulthood. Ortho-K brings real hope for parents – an opportunity to delay, or abate, myopia in their children.The improvements vary for each child, and the treatment has never been known to exacerbate Myopia, making it the best, safest option available now.
How much are Ortho-K lenses.
The treatment is comparable in price to wearing a pair of quality, daily- disposable contact lenses every day. We recommend replacing your Ortho-K lenses every six to twelve months in order to ensure that they continue to provide optimum vision correction.
