How it works:
Ortho k involves wearing special moulding lenses while you sleep. When you wake up, you remove the lenses and can see clearly all day without wearing glasses or contact lenses.
Ortho K is adjustable at any time. If your eyesight changes, we can simply adjust the treatment. It is not permanent like Laser eye surgery where the eye tissue is permanently removed. In Ortho K, the eye tissue is just temporarily reshaped.
Ortho K is good for children and adults who don’t want to wear glasses or can’t tolerate contact lenses because of eye irritation, dry eyes, playing sports, etc. It’s a safe alternative to Laser eye surgery.
At Precise Vision we have the expertise and technology to deliver this treatment for your eyes.
An added benefit of Ortho k is freedom from glasses, which is good for children’s confidence and lifestyle.
If the right procedures are followed, Ortho K is very safe. Its risk is no greater than the risk of wearing ordinary contact lenses. Like anything else, Ortho K is not 100% risk free, but in the long run, it’s risk is far less than the risk of developing Macular Degeneration, Glaucoma and Retinal Detachment as a result of uncontrolled myopia.
Ortho K is adjustable at any time. If your eyesight is still changing slightly, we can simply adjust the treatment. It is not permanent like Laser eye surgery. In Laser surgery for eyes, the eye tissue is permanently removed, so if your eye changes you can not get that tissue back. In Ortho K, NO eye tissue is removed, it’s just temporarily reshaped, that’s why it’s adjustable. You can even go back to your glasses anytime you like.
