Many contact lens wearers discontinue their contact lens wear because of dryness or discomfort. These symptoms are usually not an issue with Ortho-K because your lenses are only worn while you sleep.
Also, because your eyes are not wearing lenses while awake they receive more of the oxygen needed while awake to help maintain optimum eye health. At Visique Optometrists Lower Hutt, our clients that had not succeeded as soft contact lens wearers have succeeded with Ortho-K, with great results.
As these special lenses are worn while sleeping, eye irritation and dryness often associated with the combination of soft contact lens wear, extended computer use, air conditioning, outside dust, pollutants and allergens, are eliminated. Many of our happiest clients in Ortho-K came to us after such ongoing issues with soft contact lenses that couldn’t be resolved.
