Orthokeratology

What is Ortho-K?

  • A corneal reshaping therapy using extended wear of uniquely designed rigid gas permeable (RGP) lenses
  • Worn during sleeping hours, and removed upon awakening to facilitate CLEAR VISION for the rest of the day
  • Corrects all form of refractive errors – Myopia, Hyperopia and Astigmatism
  • Safe and Reversible process, where change is temporary due to elasticity of our cornea
  • Unlike surgical methods, no tissue removal or damages
  • Provides Myopia Control

 

How are we different?

  • The modern generation of Ortho-K lenses use a design known as ‘reverse geometry’, which results in an ‘accelerated orthokeratology’ on account of technological, material and mechanical advances.
  • Computer Numberical Controlled (CNC) lathes allows detailed and patient – specific lens designs while high oxygen permeable rigid gas materials facilitate overnight wear.
  • Experienced Orthokeratologists ensuring comfortable and pleasant Ortho-K journey.

Each and every of our orthokeratology lenses are configured precisely to individuals’
retinal shape and ensuring maximum myopia control and visual quality.

Night lenses are suitable for…

  • Children with progressive myopia
  • All age groups
  • Dry eyes and problems with daily contact lenses

Suitability Depends On:

  • Refractive error
  • Corneal curvature and structure
  • Tear film integrity
  • Motivation and hygiene complicances
