We’re really excited to be able to bring Orthokeratology – also known as Ortho-K – to Leicester and Irthlingborough. This treatment offers a large number of people the chance to have perfect vision all day, without the need to wear glasses or contact lenses,whilst removing the costs or risks which can be involved with surgery.
The science of Orthokeratology involves wearing corrective contact lenses overnight. We use the EyeDream system. These lenses, which are comfortable to sleep in and made from a specially oxygen permeable material, gently reshape the cornea at the front of your eye, eliminating your short-sightedness. The effect is strong enough that the cornea holds this new shape for all of the next day, so you can see, read and drive without needing glasses or daytime contact lenses. This halts many problems experienced by contact lens wearers such as lenses drying out during the day.
