HOW ARE ORTHO-KERATOLOGY LENSES FITTED?
The fitting of Ortho-K lenses follows a similar procedure to conventional contact lenses. A corneal topographer is used to map the exact contours of the eye using thousands of points of reference. This data is then used to produce individually tailored lenses to suit your precise needs. The topographer is also used to check the eye after the lens has been worn.
There are many different manufacturers and schemes to wear Ortho-K lenses. Some have a high initial purchase cost and the lenses are worn for several years. A more popular scheme by Nocturnalens has a reduced initial cost and monthly direct debit with a fresh pair of contact lenses fitted every year. Your Optometrist at Mackey Opticians will be able to give you more advice and choose the best scheme for your eyes.
