Why Choose Ortho-K for Sports Vision

Struggling with sports vision challenges? Ortho-K could be the solution! Those active in sports often face the hassles of wearing glasses, from breakages to foggy lenses, impacting performance and causing frustrations. Engaging in contact sports or adventurous activities becomes risky for glasses wearers due to potential mishaps.

Orthokeratology, or Ortho-K, may rekindle the possibility of enjoying these activities. These challenges extend beyond glasses wearers; contact lenses also pose issues for sporty individuals. Contacts may get knocked out, dry eyes limit wear time, and water-based activities are generally incompatible with contact lenses.

Ortho-K might offer the solution

Unlike regular contact lenses, Orthokeratology lenses (Ortho-K) don’t need daytime wear for vision correction. These lenses are worn only during sleep.

Wearing the lenses nightly and removing them in the morning results in clear, sharp vision throughout the day, freeing individuals from the need for glasses or daytime contact lenses.

Ortho-K is a safe, fully reversible treatment. It involves inserting customized lenses into the eye, exerting gentle pressure to reshape the cornea. This allows light entering the eye to focus correctly onto the back of the retina, maintaining clear and crisp vision. The process involves reinserting the lenses each night during sleep.

Advantages of Ortho-K for Athletes & Active Individuals

While Ortho-K has the potential to restore 20/20 (6/6) vision, results can vary widely. It may not be a one-size-fits-all solution, and caution is advised. Athletes exploring Ortho-K may discover lifestyle advantages not achievable with glasses or contacts.

For athletes, orthokeratology can elevate their engagement on the sports field.

The initial step to trial Ortho-K is to undergo an eye examination, including corneal mapping, to determine its suitability.
