At Clear Vision Optical we now offer specialised overnight contact lens treatment to correct vision. These are specialised contact lenses which are specially moulded and only worn during sleep in order to correct the vision during the day. This is a great alternative to laser corrective surgery. It works by gently re-shaping the cornea in a way to allow it to focus well without the need for day contact lenses or glasses. It is completely safe and effective for many patients and the results often exceed expectations.
Achieve Clearer Vision Without Surgery, Glasses or Soft Contact Lenses.
Ortho-K is a safe, non-invasive alternative to laser eye surgery. With Ortho-K, you'll see a clearer vision right from the start. The process involves contact lenses worn only overnight, giving you clear vision all day without the lenses in.
An Ortho-K lens is a special type of contact lens worn while you sleep that gently reshapes the front surface of your eye to correct nearsightedness. It's a non-surgical procedure proven to be effective in a large majority of patients. It can be used as part of a comprehensive treatment plan for nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), astigmatism and presbyopia. While sleeping, the lenses gently reshape the eye’s front surface, thereby eliminating your dependence on glasses or contact lenses during waking hours. This is done by gradually increasing the curvature of your cornea through a series of lenses over time.
Ortho-K works by gently reshaping your cornea to help you see clearly without glasses or contacts. The process starts with a thorough examination of your eyes. A computerised analysis is run on the data collected by the doctor, which creates an individualised treatment plan for you. The treatment plan may include several different prescriptions, depending on the severity of your myopia. This is where Ortho-K differs from other methods of vision correction such as LASIK, PRK and alternate day wear soft contact lenses. In other methods, only one prescription is used for everyone regardless of their level of myopia or astigmatism. The basic premise of Ortho-K is that you can alter the shape of your eye to make it easier for you to see clearly. With Ortho-K, also known as corneal refractive therapy (CRT), you wear a specially designed contact lens nightly to reshape your cornea over time. This treatment does not require any incisions or other invasive procedures.
