Orthokeratology

Orthokeratology more commonly referred to as ‘Ortho-K', is the use of contact lenses to reshape the highly elastic cornea (front surface of the eyes) in order to reduce levels of myopia and astigmatism through a flattening effect, improving vision during the day.

The lenses are worn at night whilst sleeping and removed in the morning for improved vision during the day. The effect generally lasts for the waking hours (approx 16hrs) at which point the lenses are inserted again before sleeping and seamless clear vision can be maintained.

Safety is paramount with any type of contact lens, and orthokeratology lenses are made from the safest and highest oxygen permeable materials to maximise ocular health.

The Orthokeratology patient, once successfully fitted, is then free from wearing spectacles or conventional contact lenses during the day, improving lifestyle at the same time as vision. It is an ideal solution for persons who have issues in air conditioning with regular daytime contact lenses and for those who wish to play sport freely.
