Ortho-K Vision Correction System

Have you ever wanted clear vision all day without glasses but didn’t want to try laser eye surgery?

Ortho-K is a specially designed contact lens that reverses the power of the cornea, at the front of the eye during overnight wear. Once the full effect has taken place, the eye is effectively ‘normal’ and can see clearly during the day. So all you do is wear the contact lens to sleep in, then take it out in the morning so you can enjoy clear vision all day without the need for glasses or other contact lenses.

What are the benefits?

  • Freedom from contact lenses and glasses during the day
  • Very easy adaptation, only overnight lens wear required
  • A comfortable, semi-permanent alternative for the correction of short sightedness
  • A safe and reversible vision correction therapy without surgery

Who is suitable?

  • Low to mid short sighted people.
  • Children. Please ask us about myopia control in children. We may be able to reduce the progression of myopia/short sightedness in children.

Can I really just sleep and see?

Yes, once the effect is complete you simply remove the lenses each morning and can see normally. Also - and this is really clever - you will be able to see clearly with the lenses in when you wake up in the morning (or in the middle of the night). It really is a clear future 24/7!

How quickly will it work?

After the first night most of the necessary correction has been achieved. Normally within a week your sight during the day will be ‘treated’ and you will no longer be reliant on glasses or contact lenses.

Is it safe?

Yes. Research and experience show that the whole process is 100% reversible. So if you decide to stop wearing your lenses for whatever reason, the eye will return to its original shape and you will see clearly with your glasses again. This makes it an excellent alternative to laser eye surgery and is readily available from the professional you trust with your eye-care.

How is it possible to wear lenses overnight?

Ortho-K lenses are made of one of the very highest oxygen permeable materials, Boston XO™*, for maximum comfort and safety during overnight wear. The other unique benefit is that unlike normal lens wear the eye spends its waking hours with natural oxygen levels, uninhibited by contact lenses.

How do I try?

Simply book an appointment for a suitability consultation (a fee will be charged for this important assessment). If you are suitable your eyes will be analysed on an eye-mapping instrument and from the data gathered, lenses ordered. Following lens collection and your first overnight wear,we will regularly monitor your progress until you only need 6 monthly assessments.
