Orthokeratology or Ortho-K are hard contact lenses worn when you go to sleep. It enables clear vision without glasses or contact lenses all day. Unlike glasses, you will have unobstructed peripheral vision and won’t have to worry about glasses flying off your face while playing sport.
Dry eyes will also no longer be a problem if you suffer from contact lens related dry eye. Additionally, you will be able to swim and not have to worry about losing your contact lenses.
Another main benefit of Ortho-k lenses is that it is one of the few ways to slow the changes in your prescription. Recent studies have shown this and from our experience, your prescription is usually stopped in its tracks. Therefore it is very important for children with a changing prescription to begin treatment immediately.
