Ortho-K night lenses?
OVERNIGHT ORTHOKERATOLOGY

Orthokeratology or Ortho-k is a treatment to improve vision through the reshaping of the cornea, it is the best alternative to eyeglasses and refractive surgery, ideal for those who want clear vision without the use of glasses or contact lenses during the day.

Ortho-k has its origins in the 1960's when it was discovered that contact lenses changed the corneal curvature and therefore improved vision.

New technologies such as corneal topography and computer assisted conception of new contact lens designs allow us to treat more severe miopía than ever before. Furthermore, new hyper oxygen-permeable materials make use at night even safer.

And now with PauneVision Ortho-k lenses it is also possible to treat astigmatism and farsightedness.

WHO COULD BE INTERESTED IN ORTHO-K?

The main objective of Ortho-k is to see freely, without glasses or contact lenses during the day. The freedom offered as opposed to glasses is ideal for sports. All those who work in environments with dust or dirt find glasses or contact lenses very annoying. Moreover, all professions that require good vision without glasses, such as policemen or fire-fighters, benefit from the virtues of Ortho-k.

Children with progressing myopia benefit not only from the advantages outlined above but also a slowing down of their myopia.

EVERYONE IS RIGHT FOR ORTHO-K?

The procedure works perfectly in low-to-moderate myopia associated or not with astigmatism. Top rankings (up to – 7.00 Diopters) can be corrected depending on the corneal response. Nowadays hyperopia is also possible.

The viability of each case is assessed based on the individual factors.
