Ortho K

Natural Vision Correction While You Sleep...

Put simply, Ortho-K allows people suffering from Myopia (or short-sightedness) to enjoy clear, natural and corrected vision during the day without the inconveniences associated with wearing lenses or spectacles.

Also sometimes referred to as EyeDream, numerous studies have shown that Ortho-K can dramatically slow or even stop the progression of short-sightedness, making it a fantastic solution for many children as well as adults.

How does it work?

Ortho-k lenses correct your vision while you sleep. Simply pop your ortho-k lenses in before bedtime, remove them in the morning, and wake up to a world of clear, sharp, natural vision.

Ortho-k is ideal for:
  • People who want clear natural vision all day - every day
  • Sporty or active people
  • Young people - can help to reduce the progression of short-sightedness
  • People who have considered laser surgery but are worried about the risks
  • People who find contact lenses uncomfortable or specs inconvenient

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, once the effect is complete, the lenses are simply removed each morning and you can see clearly for the duration of the day. And even before you take the lenses out in the morning, or if you get up in the middle of the night, your vision will still be clear. So the benefits work around the clock for you.

After the first night of wearing the lenses, most of the important correction has been achieved. Usually, daytime eyesight is corrected within the first week, and there is no longer any need for specs and regular contact lenses.

Yes. Research and trials show that the process is entirely reversible. If you decide that ortho-k is not for you and want to stop wearing them, the eye will return to its original shape and eyesight to its former condition. This flexibility makes ortho-k an excellent alternative to laser-eye surgery.

The treatment is comparable in price to wearing a pair of quality, daily-disposable contact lenses every day. We recommend replacing your ortho-k lenses every six months in order to ensure that they continue to provide optimum vision correction.

Not at all, because ortho-k lenses are designed from a gas-permeable material. This revolutionary design allows oxygen to pass through the lens into the eye, preventing dryness and irritation. The lenses are incredibly comfortable to wear, and because no lens is required during the day, the eyes benefit from natural oxygen levels while they are not being worn.
