Ortho-K lenses are a painless and risk-free alternative to laser eye surgery, which will show improvements in your vision straight away.
We are proud to be one of the first practices in the UK to provide these fantastic lenses. Below, you will be able to see how they work and whether you will be able to benefit from them.
Ortho-K lenses are ideal for anyone who wants to enjoy clear, crisp and natural vision throughout their day. People that have astigmatism or shortsightedness can use the lenses to correct the condition too. They are mostly ideal for people with low to mid shortsightedness.
We recommend Ortho-K lenses to people who practice any sport or use computers and find that their usual eye-wear gets in the way. They are also suitable for all ages.
The treatment takes place whilst you sleep, allowing you to get on with your day with crystal clear vision. After a series of tests we will design your lenses specifically for your needs and then send the design away for manufacturing.
Ortho-K offers the same benefits as laser eye surgery, gently achieving the same results without any risk of damage to your eyesight. The lenses need to be worn every night in order to achieve optimum results during the day.
For short-sighted people, when your eyes are closed, the pressure from the eyelid pushes onto the lens, reversing the curvature of the cornea. This means that when you wake up, your vision will be completely in focus.
The first thing you need to do is to book an eye examination with our experienced optometrist. They will analyse your vision closely, and if your eyes are suitable for Ortho-K lenses, they will talk you through the process and take detailed measurements of your eyes, as well as explaining how you should look after the lenses effectively.
You will also need to visit the optometrist regularly so that the changes in your vision can be monitored.
