ORTHO-K FOR CHILDREN AND ADULTS
Orthokeratology, or Ortho-K can provide patients with complete freedom from glasses or contact lenses during the day and throughout waking hours. It’s a non-surgical, non-permanent solution which eliminates the discomfort and inconvenience of other vision-correction options, and allows users to experience clear vision on a daily basis.
Ortho-K is a technique which has been in use for over 50 years, and recent developments in research and technology have allowed for much higher accuracy, with predictable successes.
Ortho-K lenses are uniquely designed to be worn during sleep and removed upon waking. While the user sleeps, the lenses generate pressure in the eye, gently and temporarily reshaping the cornea to achieve the desired shape for clear vision.
The specially-designed rigid lenses used for Ortho-K are custom fitted, and can correct vision problems in patients suffering mild to severe myopia (up to -12.00), with or without astigmatism. As the effects are temporary, patients usually find that their daytime vision returns to normal after approximately 3 nights without wearing the Ortho-K lenses, and for best results they should be worn every night.
Orthokeratology is the ideal solution for anyone who hates wearing glasses, finds contact lenses unsuitable and doesn’t want to undergo surgery. The treatment is an easy and reversible alternative to traditional solutions to poor eyesight, and can transform the life of myopia sufferers.
