Overnight correction (ortho-k)
Here at Maloney Opticians we like to offer the latest specialist technology. We are also members of the European Academy of Orthokeratology which is dedicated to the advancement of this clinical procedure.
This form of correction is incredibly useful for:
People who dislike glasses
People who have a hard time wearing soft contact lenses
Sportswomen and Men
People who find contact lenses uncomfortable in challenging environments (VDU work, air conditioning, long distance driving…)
The lenses work by progressively flattening the cornea overnight, reducing the level of myopia so that you can see clearly without any correction through the day.
Interested? To be a good candidate for this type of correction you should…
Have regular sleep patterns and sleep ~7 hours a night (or more)
Be myopic with a prescription up to -6.00 dioptres – We can correct higher but the level of success drops the higher we go
Have a small amount or astigmatism or none at all – Again, we can correct higher levels but the success level is lower
No previous ocular surgery
The best thing you can do is to call us on 0161 905 1104 or take a trip into Sale and see one our lovely staff members. We can discuss your individual needs and decide if this is for you or not. Remember, unlike surgery this type of correction is completely reversible.
We have two schemes for our orthokeratology patients. Our normal package is £45 per month and includes annual replacement lenses, eye examinations, solutions and all scans / monitoring. Our enhanced package is £50 and includes all of the above but the lenses are replaced every 6 months and we provide replacements each year should you lose lenses.
