The Science

- Safe, comfortable and effective vision correction

Ortho-k lenses gently reshape the curvature of the eye overnight. The cornea plays a key role in creating a sharp, optical focus. Upon waking, the slight change in cornea curvature is enough to create clear, sharp vision for the duration of the day.

In addition, it is believed that the refocusing of light on the peripheral retina can slow down the progression of short-sightedness in children.  

Ortho-k has been in used in the UK since 2002, and is only ever fitted by an optical specialist. It is non-invasive, comfortable, effective and safe and has already transformed the lives of thousands of people.
