Orthokeratology, Ortho-K Lenses
How it Can Help Short-Sightedness
If you suffer from short-sightedness, and not a fan of wearing glasses; you might feel that there are only two options available to you. Whilst contact lenses and laser eye surgery are very popular and are viable solutions for you, you might not know there is in fact a third option – Orthokeratology from Eyedream. If you suffer from short-sightedness and are looking for a non-invasive way of ditching your specs during the day, we think Orthokeratology might be for you.
This process is also known as Overnight Vision Protection. It involves wearing custom lenses whilst you sleep that help to correct your vision. Whilst this might sound quite miraculous, EyeDream Orthokeratology is safe and effective. It has already transformed the lives of thousands of people around the world.
Additionally, as this is such a simple process; using Ortho-K lenses should be able to easily fit into your daily routine.
Whilst this is an incredibly popular treatment, Orthokeratology is only specifically for people who suffer from mild to moderate short-sightedness.
How Does Orthokeratology Work?
Orthokeratology is a really simple process. When you put in the Ortho-K Eyedream lenses in overnight, the lenses gently reshape the curvature of your eyes. When you wake up in the morning, you’ll find that you’ll have perfect vision.
This process is non-invasive and means that you can enjoy your day without glasses or contact lenses getting in the way. It would be perfect for people who have a more active lifestyle.
Great for Children!
Along with the clear benefits of wearing Ortho-K lenses, it has been shown that they also help to reduce the progression of Myopia in children and adults.
Ortho-k is fantastic for children, giving them the freedom to enjoy a life without limitations. Numerous studies have also shown that ortho-k can dramatically slow or even stop the progression of short-sightedness. Subsequently they can reduce the risk of developing associated problems, such as glaucoma, once in adulthood.
Parents are often faced with fees for replacement framesfor the many possible accidents . Because a child only wears ortho-k lenses when they are indoors and in bed, there is far less likelihood of damage and loss. Parents are free of worry and added expense and children can get on with enjoying their childhood.
