Ortho -K

Ortho-K provides clear comfortable vision without the need to wear contact lenses during the day.

Ortho-K is an exciting technique to gently reshape the cornea overnight using gas permeable lenses to alter your prescription, so giving clear comfortable vision during the day. No more tired irritable eyes during the day or worry about them falling out. Studies also show that wearing Ortho-K lenses can have a stabilising effect on myopic progression in children. I’m sure everyone is familiar with the seeming need for ever stronger glasses, this can now be controlled and is a proven method of myopia control.

What is Ortho-K?

Exciting news for Contact Lens wearers,
especially children.

Ortho-K provides clear comfortable vision without the need to wear contact lenses during the day. No more restrictions on how long you wear lenses, no more irritations in dry atmospheres in front of the computer or at the end of a long day.

So how is this possible?

Ortho-K is a specially designed contact lens that you wear overnight that gently reshapes the front (cornea) of your eye to alter the eyes focus until it is effectively normal and you can see clearly through the day.  You will notice an improvement after only 1 night of use with full effect after a week.
