Who is Ortho-K for?

Overnight Vision Correction, otherwise known as Ortho-K allows people suffering from myopia, or short sightedness, to enjoy a life without lenses or specs during the day, whilst enjoying clear, natural, corrected vision
Ortho-K is available for patients with the following prescriptions:
Spherical Prescription of up to -5.00D
Astigmatism of up to -2.50D (Cyl)

Ortho-K is ideal for:

  • People who want clear natural vision all day – every day
  • Sporty or Active People
  • Young People – Ortho-K can help reduce the progression of shortsightedness
  • People who have considered laser surgery but are worried about the risks
  • People who find contact lenses uncomfortable or inconvenient


The Process:

Appointment 1. Evaluation
Patient must not have worn any contact lenses for at least 48 hours prior to initial appointment. Suitability is assessed and scans taken to accurately map shape of front surface of the eye.

Appointment 2. Fitting
Lenses are fitted, patient shown how to insert, remove, clean and store the lenses. Lenses to be worn that night.

Appointment 3. First Assessment
Morning after first wear patient returns to the practice wearing the lenses – Lenses removed and vision assessed.

Appointment 4. First Follow Up
Patient returns 5-7 days later for an afternoon appointment when lenses will have been removed upon awaking. It is anticipated that a good level of vision has now been achieved and is remaining stable throughout the day.

Appointment 5. Second Assessment
Patient returns approximately 14 days from first wear. Confirming successful fitting

Future Aftercare:

Patient returns every 6 months for a vision and eye health assessment. Lenses are replaced and new scans taken either every 6 or 12 months.


If suitable for scans, there is an initial fee of £189.00. This is the cost of all Initial appointments, your first pair of lenses, (plus up to 2 pairs of prescription changes should they be required), cleaning solutions and a storage case.

You will then be set up onto a direct debit scheme where a simple monthly fee will cover all future supply of lenses, (lenses are replaced either every 6 or 12 months) solutions, all future after care and sight tests.

What If I can’t get on with Ortho-K?

All Ortho-K lenses are specially manufactured individually to your unique specifications. In the unlikely event that you should you not happy with the vision that Ortho-K provides you then we will offer a £100 credit against any spectacle of contact lens purchase from us.

The supply of all Ortho-K lenses is subject to suitability and availability and is done so under the care and guidance of our Qualified Optometrist.
