Ortho-K, Myopia Control

alt : Ortho-K

Contact lenses custom designed by us to wear while you sleep at night for the temporary correction of myopia (nearsightedness) with or without moderate astigmatism. While you sleep, the gentle pressure from your eyelid on the lens is transferred to your tear layer changing the shape of your cornea which improves your vision overnight. If you wake in the night you can see through these special Gas permeable lenses.  When you remove the lenses in the morning, you can see well without lenses or glasses. Perfect for those with a busy lifestyle, for swimming or active watersports for example.

                                                                        

Ortho K is also used for children to help slow the progession of their myopia. By wearing these special lenses every night their vision remains constant during their teens when the body is growing and there is the potential for myopia to increase. Our young ortho k wearers are very successful and enjoy the many benifits of Ortho K lenses.

Ortho K provides the opportunity to be free from both contact lenses and spectacles for the waking hours. The procedure particularly appeals to short-sighted spectacle and contact lens wearers and is ideal for sportsmen, those who work in dusty and dirty environments or people who find spectacles or conventional contact lenses inconvenient.
