Orthodontics corrects teeth.
Orthopaedics corrects skeletal injuries.
Orthokeratology corrects the cornea (front surface of the eye).

Visique Hutt Optometrist Eyecare Forge SoftwareVisique on High Street is proud to offer custom Ortho-K lens fitting using the latest revolutionary fitting-software and manufacturing technology. This exciting development allows us to give even clearer, longer-lasting and more predictable vision than ever before!

The Forge Ortho-K lens is breaking the mould for what is possible with Orthokeratology. It is now possible to correct higher amounts of all forms of correction previously not thought possible with Orthokeratology including short-sightedness, astigmatism and long-sightedness.

Regaining clear vision is so easy you can do it with your eyes closed!

Ortho-K explained

Ortho-K is a revolutionary non-surgical, non-invasive, safe and reversible treatment to gently reshape the cornea (front surface of your eye).

New state-of-the-art developments in night-wear contact lenses will modify or eliminate myopia (short sightedness), the need for reading glasses (presbyopia), hyperopia (long sightedness) and astigmatism (irregularly shaped cornea) while you sleep.

Although Ortho-K has been practised for decades and many thousands of people have been successfully treated, it is only recently that high technology instrumentation has become available to accurately scan and digitally map the cornea. On the basis of these digital maps precision lenses are manufactured via computerised lathes that will achieve a controlled, precise and accurate reduction in the eye’s optical imperfection. In conjunction with developments in specialised space-age polymer contact lens materials this has enabled safe overnight wear.

The technique of modern Ortho-K is a safe and reversible alternative to refractive surgery. Ortho-K will also halt the progression of short sightedness, especially in children and teenagers. This is known as ‘myopia control’ and is the only means of controlling myopia that has been repeatedly supported by rigorous and respected scientific research.

The cornea, whilst being mouldable, reverts to its original shape if lens wear is stopped – hence this procedure is completely reversible and safe. Ortho-K is exceptional, specialised and is managed and fitted by eye care practitioners highly trained in this area.
