ORTHO-KERATOLOGY: YOUR FREEDOM FROM GLASSES!

Ortho-K is a treatment that has been around from the 60’s and great for those who don’t want to wear glasses or contact lenses all day, every day . Contact lenses are used to reshape the cornea gently, without touching the cornea, to reduce or correct focussing problems of the eyes. This technique corrects short sightedness, long-sightedness and astigmatism.

Lenses are used overnight, with results in days and retainer lenses are used infrequently long-term to keep the new shape.
