Clear Vision for Kids with Ortho-K Lenses

f your kids are grappling with myopia, you understand the struggle – distant objects appear blurry, and dependency on glasses or contact lenses is a constant. What if there was a non-surgical solution to correct their eyesight and reduce reliance on eyewear?

Orthokeratology (Ortho-K) lenses can turn this wish into reality.

What Is Ortho-K?

Ortho-K, or Orthokeratology, involves using custom-fitted gas-permeable contact lenses worn overnight. As your kids sleep, these lenses gently reshape the eye’s surface. Upon waking, they can enjoy clear vision throughout the day without the need for glasses or contacts.

Ortho-K is primarily prescribed to correct refractive errors (like myopia or astigmatism) and slow the progression of myopia in children.

What to Expect

When your kids start Ortho-K, we’ll painlessly measure their corneas’ curvature, creating a topographical map. Existing lenses or custom orders may be used. Clear vision is achieved through temporary lenses until a specific prescription is reached (20/20 being the goal).

Initially, there might be a sense of lens awareness as they fall asleep, but most kids adjust over time.

Benefits of Ortho-K stands out for several reasons:

  • Effective control: Halts myopia progression in children.
  • Versatile treatment: Addresses hyperopia, presbyopia, and astigmatism.
  • Advanced design: Modern technology ensures precision and optimal fit.
  • Enhanced eye health: Improved accuracy and new lens materials enhance safety.
  • Reduced future problems: Manages myopia, promoting long-term eye health.

Getting rid of your thick eyeglasses with Ortho-K

Imagine a world where you can enjoy crystal-clear vision without the burden of thick eyeglasses or undergoing surgery. Our Ortho-K services in Punggol, Singapore bring this vision to life where the dedicated optometrist will tailor contact lenses designed to be worn overnight, offering a non-invasive solution to correct your eyes and enhance your vision.

Ortho-K Process:

As you sleep, these specially crafted lenses gently and painlessly reshape your cornea, addressing the misshapen areas that contribute to blurry vision. While the correction is not permanent, providing flexibility, the overnight lenses offer temporary visual clarity without the need for glasses or daytime contacts.

Understanding Corneal Reshaping:

The cornea, the transparent dome-shaped surface of the eyeball, plays a crucial role in focusing light onto the retina. Any irregularities in corneal curvature result in conditions like myopia, hyperopia, or astigmatism, causing blurred vision. Similar to how a retainer aligns teeth, our custom-designed lenses work to “straighten” the cornea’s curvature during sleep, allowing proper light focus for a clear image.

Ortho-K for Myopia Management:

Beyond vision correction, Ortho-K proves to be a game-changer in managing myopia, especially in children. This innovative solution has the potential to slow down myopia progression, potentially reducing the need for stronger prescriptions in the future.

Who are the candidates for Ortho-K?

  • Children with worsening myopia.
  • Patients are unable to wear daytime contacts due to allergies or dry eyes.
  • Patients seeking an alternative to refractive surgery like LASIK.
  • Active sports enthusiasts, both adults and children.
  • Water enthusiasts such as surfers or swimmers.
  • Professionals with jobs where glasses or contacts are cumbersome.
  • Those who simply prefer not to wear glasses or daytime contacts.

Free Consultation With Us:

Determining your eligibility for Ortho-K requires a consultation, which Eyecare 24/7 provides for free. This comprehensive session includes a wavefront corneal map, eye health examination, and prescription verification. These measurements help us ascertain if Ortho-K is the right fit for you.
