A simple guide to Ortho K:

  • Ortho K offers you freedom from glasses and additionally from all daytime contact lenses.
  • It is completely reversible.
  • It can correct moderate short-sighted prescriptions and some astigmatism.
  • It is also recommended for children as it can slow short-sighted progression.
  • Custom-made, highly gas-permeable lenses are worn each night.
  • It is a great alternative to laser eye surgery.
  • If you require any more information please have a look at the manufacturers website here.

 

Who can consider OrthoK?

  • Low to Medium short-sighted prescriptions (ask us if your prescription is within the treatable range).
  • Contact lens wearers who find they can’t get the comfort their lifestyle demands.
  • Those whose activities aren’t ideal for glasses or contact lens wear.
  • People who’ve considered laser treatment but are concerned about the risks or can’t be treated.kids

What is the procedure?

  • A current glasses prescription is needed to start the trial which can be our eye examination or we accept other opticians prescriptions.
  • Images are taken of the cornea using a Topographer which bounces light off the front of  the eye.
  • Custom-made lenses are worn only at night to gently reshape the front of the eye using it’s tear layer.
  • We show how to insert, remove and care for the lenses.
  • Further images are taken and prescription re-measured at each visit.
  • The number of visits to get full effect varies (usually between 3 and 6 over a period of 1 to 3 months).
  • Wear can be ceased at any time and the eyes then return to their previous prescription within a few days.

How much does it cost?

  • £100 on first ordering lenses.
  • £100 by direct debit 1 month later.
  • £40pm by direct debit after that.montaarge
