Contact Lens Fitting Options
What’s new with contact lenses?
For many of our patients, wearing contact lenses has been a transformative experience. Over the past decade, contact lens technology has become so adept that many users forget they are even wearing them. Making them ideal for anyone seeking freedom from their frames. Focus Medical Eye Centre have different contact lens fitting options, designed to make your eye wear more comfortable and easy to use.
But perhaps you have had a bad experience in the past? Or perhaps you have concerns about putting them in and taking them out again? At Focus Medical Eye Centre we offer contact lens trial appointments. We will guide you through the different options and give you the confidence to use your lenses safely.
Nowadays, there are contact lenses to cater for almost every lifestyle and prescription. Whether you’re short-sighted, long-sighted, or require multi-focal vision correction. And they are available in daily, weekly or longer-wear varieties. So if you have an active lifestyle, spend lots of time outside, or simply wish that you didn’t have to wear glasses all the time, why not book a trial contact lens fitting options session with us today?
You may soon be able to say goodbye to glasses and contact lenses altogether. With this cutting-edge contact lens technology that actually corrects your vision as you sleep. Using overnight ‘corneal reshaping’ lenses, OrthoKeratology works by gradually shifting and compressing the epithelial cells that cover the surface of your cornea. In this way your eyes are gradually reshaped as you sleep. So you won’t need any eye wear to see during the waking hours.
Orthokeratology, or Ortho-K, corrects myopia via overnight contact lenses that gradually reshape your cornea while you sleep. When you wake up, you can remove the lenses and see without the need for vision correction. The corneal reshaping is temporary – lasting only for a day or two. So you can always stop wearing them if you want to go back to contact lenses or glasses.
Ortho-K is the ideal solution for those with active lifestyles who don’t want to rely on eyewear during the waking hours. Anyone working in dry or dusty conditions, or young people not old enough for laser eye surgery. Research has shown that Ortho-K technology can also slow the progression of myopia in children.
How we can help
The Focus Medical Eye Centre team are highly qualified to fit your Ortho-K lenses. To measure the curvature of your corneas, we use a corneal topographer to create a topographical map of the surface of your eyes. We then supply you with lenses from our extensive inventory. Or, if your exact fit is not available, we’ll order custom lenses to suit your personal prescription. To attain the maximum vision correction, you may need up to three pairs of lenses. Please let us know what Contact Lens Fitting Options you are interested in, when you book your appointment with us.
