Orthokeratology/Ortho-K | Cheltenham

WHAT IS ORTHOKERATOLOGY?

Ortho-K is a new way to control short-sightedness and we are one of the only opticians in Gloucestershire to offer this treatment.

These are specially shaped contact lenses which gently flatten the cornea so that the light focuses correctly on the back of the retina. Due to the fact that the cornea is elastic, it will retain the corrected shape for at least 36 hours. Ortho-K lenses are custom designed and are worn every night while you are asleep. By wearing special contact lenses to sleep in at night, it is possible to be free of wearing contact lenses and glasses during the day time. At Keith Holland Opticians we use the EyeDream Ortho-K lenses

Ortho-K is a great alternative to laser – it’s a cheaper approach, is reversible and can also act as a stepping stone to having laser eye surgery. To find out more, call us on 01242 233500
