Discover the alternative solution to correct vision without relying on prescription glasses or daytime contact lenses. Orthokeratology, also known as Ortho-K, offers a unique approach to vision correction using specialised contact lenses worn only at night.
Certain vision problems stem from irregular corneal shapes or imperfect spheres in the eye. This slight misfocus of light entering the eye can result in blurred vision. Ortho-K lenses work by gently reshaping the cornea while you sleep, providing clear and sharper vision upon waking.
The effects of Ortho-K lenses are temporary but can last for a day or longer. By consistently wearing the corrective lenses during the night, you can enjoy clear vision throughout the following day.
In addition to providing short-term clear vision, Ortho-K lenses offer the added benefit of slowing down or preventing further vision decline over time. They not only address immediate vision needs but also contribute to long-term vision preservation.
Ortho-K lenses are particularly suitable for individuals with myopia (short-sightedness) who prefer to avoid wearing glasses or contact lenses during the day. By wearing Ortho-K lenses at night, you can achieve clear vision without the need for daytime corrective eyewear.
