“Centre of Clinical Excellence”

We are proud to be the first practice in Cyprus to introduce Orthokeratology!

Orhokeratology or Ortho-K also known as Overnight Vision Correction, is the use of specially designed Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) contact lenses to change the shape of the cornea (the transparent part of the eye) to correct low-moderate levels of myopia and astigmatism.

“Imagine wearing contact lenses only while you sleep and enjoy clear natural vision during the day without the use of glasses or contact lenses!!”

No more restrictions on how long you wear your lenses, no more irritation 
in dry, smoky environments or at the end of a long day!

   

Ortho-K lenses are worn nightly and gently reduce the power of the cornea leaving you with clear, comfortable vision without the need to wear annoying glasses or uncomfortable contact lenses during the day.




Is Ortho-K safe?
Yes it is safe. Research and experience show that the whole process is completely reversible. If you decide to stop Ortho-K your corneas will return to their original shape and you will see clearly with your glasses again.



Who is suitable for Ortho-K?

  • Myopia up to -5.00D
  • Astigmatism up to -2.50D

 

Ideal solution for people who:

  • Want clear natural vision all day, every day
  • Find soft contact lenses are not comfortable enough for their lifestyle
  • Are involved in sports and recreational activities where glasses or contact lenses are not ideal
  • Have considered having refractive surgery but are worried about the potential risks that come with it

 

With Ortho-K you will benefit from:

  • Freedom from contact lenses and glasses during the day
  • Only overnight lens wear required
  • Comfortable, semi-permanent alternative for the correction of myopia
  • Safe and reversible vision correction process without refractive surgery

How do I try Ortho-K?
Simply book an appointment for a suitability consultation. If you are suitable your eyes will be analysed on an eye-mapping instrument
 and from the data gathered, lenses ordered. Following lens collection and your first overnight wear, we will regularly monitor your progress until you only need 3-6 monthly assessments.
