The key to great vision without the need of spectacles or contact lenses during the day could be as simple as a good night’s sleep.
The revolutionary Ortho K contact lens is used at night to gently reshape the surface of the eye. Once the desired effect is obtained no spectacles are needed during the day.
Keratoconus is an eye condition where the front surface the eye becomes distorted and causes poor vision and can often lead to a corneal transplant.
In the past, small corneal hard lenses were fitted for these cases, but these lenses were very often uncomfortable to wear. Patients battled with symptoms of reflex tearing, lens decentration and constant lens awareness when blinking.
