What is Ortho-K?
Exciting news for Contact Lens wearers,
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.
Currently Ortho-K is more suitable for short-sighted prescriptions but we are working on long-sighted and even multifocal corrections.
