Should I have Orthokeratology?

Imagine the freedom of working, studying, playing sport, or enjoying swimming, surfing and mountain biking, without the inconvenience or discomfort of contact lenses or glasses.

If you work in dusty, dirty or windy environments; if you have dry eyes or allergies; damaging, breaking or losing glasses – especially kids; then Ortho-K is an ideal means of vision correction.

In short, Ortho-K works best for people who don’t want to wear glasses or contact lenses during the day but don’t mind wearing contact lenses while they sleep.

What if I have been unsuccessful with contact lenses before?

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.

What about Children and Ortho-K?

Children are some of the best candidates for Ortho-K.

Apart from improving their vision, children and especially teenagers benefit from the improved self-esteem, the ability to play all sports, and the ability to wear fashion sunglasses. Furthermore, parents don’t have to worry about their child losing contact lenses at school or sport, because they’re left at home.

We routinely perform Ortho-K on children as young as 7 with complete safety.

What Does It Cost?

The procedure requires detailed care, specialised skills by a trained practitioner and state of the art technology involving several appointments.

For this reason, your initial costs are greater than conventional contact lens correction but less than 1/3 of the cost of laser eye surgery.

You can take advantage of our Interest Free option to help cover costs.
