Imagine freedom from daytime contact lens wear

A new dawn for vision correction

Introducing Ortho K - a vision correction therapy that provides clear, comfortable vision without the need to wear contact lenses during the day. No more restrictions on how long you wear your lenses, no more irritation in dry, smokey environments or at the end of a long day.

Ortho K is ideal for low-mid short sighted people who:

  • Want clear natural vision all day - every day
  • Find soft contact lenses do not fulfil the comfort demands their life-style places on their eyes
  • Are involved in recreational and sports activities where periods without wearing contact lenses is ideal
  • Have considered refractive surgery because of the freedom it provides, but are worried about the risks

So how is this possible? Very simply, 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. With Ortho K you will benefit from:

  • 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

Ortho K is a vision therapy that brings a modern approach to a technique known as orthokeratology Ortho K lenses are manufactured from special highly oxygen permeable material. When worn during the night these lenses apply a controlled shape to the 'window' at the front of the eye (the cornea), eliminating your short sightedness.

The effect stays strong enough for you to function the entire day without spectacles or contact lenses.
