Eye Dream Orthokeratology
Wear contact lenses overnight for perfect vision all day long
What is Eye Dream Orthokeratology?
Orthokeratology, also known as Ortho-K, Overnight Vision Correction or Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT), is a process where the front surface (cornea) of the eye is temporarily reshaped by wearing specially fitted contact lenses overnight, giving you clear vision without glasses or contact lenses during the following day.
Who is Ortho-K Suitable for?
The lenses are used to correct short-sightedness (myopia) and will work best with prescriptions between -0.75D and -4.50D, with astigmatism of up to -2.50D, although higher prescriptions can be considered as well – please feel free to call us or pop into practice with your latest eye test or contact lens specification, to enquire about your suitability.
What are the benefits?
The Ortho-K technique avoids the need to wear contact lenses during the day. This can be ideal for those who find their lenses dry out and become uncomfortable. It is a real benefit for those with varied hobbies that may include swimming and watersports (where contact lenses are not recommended).
Can Children Wear Ortho-K lenses?
Yes! In fact children are ideal candidates. The lenses are as easy to wear as soft contact lenses and since the child never leaves the house in their lenses, it avoids risks of the lenses getting torn or lost during the day.
Research has shown the the corneal shaping effect of the lens can help to reduce myopic progression in children aged between 8 and 13 and so can provide long term benefits as well.
