iSee Orthokeratology Contact Lenses
Are your kids nearsighted? Nearsightedness, also known as myopia, is a common vision problem that causes distant objects to appear blurry and out of focus. iSee orthokeratology contact lenses correct myopia and are worn at night. The lenses are placed before bedtime and gently reshape the corneal surface while you sleep. With the lenses removed in the morning, your child can enjoy a clear, natural vision for a whole day.
Many iSee lens wearers are children and young adults. The iSee OrthoK Lenses for Corneal Refractive Therapy take the worries and complications out of your child who wears glasses or other forms of vision correction during the day. Providing visual acuity comparable to wearing soft lenses on a daily basis, they are an excellent visual solution for outdoor sports such as swimming, soccer, football, and diving when glasses or contact lenses do not provide desirable performance. Enjoy the freedom without glasses and daily contact lenses
OrthoK (orthokeratology) is a non-surgical eye treatment that uses specially designed contact lenses to gently reshape the curve of the eye while you sleep to improve vision. OrthoK Retainer Contact Lenses are made of a highly oxygen permeable material that allows you to wear them safely while you sleep. OrthoK Corneal Refractive Therapy Lenses only affect the cornea of the eye. The shape of the cornea is critical to maintaining sharp optical focus on objects by diffraction of light entering the eye. Corneal tissue is soft and can be accurately modelled. OrthoK lenses float on the tear film and still offer enough pressure to reshape the cornea. ISee ™ OrthoK Therapy Lenses gently shape the first few micrometres of the cornea while you sleep.
Why iSee Orthokeratology (Ortho K) May Be Better Than Contact Lenses?
-Contact lenses can become dehydrated, especially during periods of extreme attention, while an athlete will no longer blink enough to keep them moist. If they get too dry, eyesight can fluctuate.
-Contact lenses can occasionally dry halfway or lose focus, especially during contact sports.
-Contact Lenses for astigmatism sometimes lead to unstable vision due to quick head movements and rapid postures.
-Hypersensitive eye reactions can cause problems when wearing contact lenses. Athletes who normally wear lenses will find it unbearable during hypersensitivity season, while pollen and various airborne irritants can adhere to the lenses.
Why iSee Refractive Corneal Therapy Is Ideal For Exercise And An Active Lifestyle?
-Clear vision without wearing anything on your eyes during activities.
-Unrestricted field of view and full peripheral vision without interference from glasses.
-No more glasses that fog up with sweat or that fog up when the temperature changes rapidly.
-Does not irritate contact lenses.
-It is not necessary to bring replacement contact lenses and contact lens solutions to practice and on game days.
-They will not get misty or wet with rain, mud, or sweat. Ensure a more stable view by moving the head and body rapidly.
