Ortho-K or Orthokeratology is a way of wearing contact lenses overnight to correct your vision during the day. Custom designed overnight contact lenses are worn while you sleep and then removed each morning resulting in clear natural vision all day long. Ortho-K has been around for several decades. With the development of modern instruments it has become more popular as the accurate measurements that we can now obtain can be used to create precisely manufactured, personalised contact lenses.
Ortho-K is ideal for
Sports enthusiasts-Wearing a night time contact lens removes the risk of damaging or losing glasses or contact lenses while involved in physical activity. Ortho-K lenses are ideal for those engaged in water sports and contact sports.
Allergy sufferers-Allows glasses free vision even during hayfever season.
Dry eye sufferers-Ortho-K lenses avoid the discomfort that can sometimes be caused by day time contact lenses.
How does it work?
Ortho-K corrects short-sightedness (myopia) which is a condition where the eye is effectively too long and images focus in front of the retina causing blurred distance vision. Ortho-K lenses are custom made to your prescription and cornea shape. They gently flatten the cornea by less than a hair’s width so that, on removal, rays of light coming into the eye focus correctly on the retina. To maintain this effect the lenses must be worn each nightCONTACT US
