OrthoK is a revolutionary eye treatment which corrects vision overnight. A specially designed contact lens is worn whilst you sleep, to reduce the power of the cornea to improve short sightedness. Kathryn Anthony introduced OrthoK earlier this year and has already begun treating patients.
Practice Manager, Sarah West, who has worn glasses and contact lenses for over 20 years, offered to trial OrthoK. We asked Sarah to keep a diary about her experience, follow her story here...
A VERY happy customer
"After a few weeks of starting with my OrthoK lenses I couldn't be happier. I've got used to the change in my routine of putting lenses in at night and removing them in the morning. My eyes are much less dry and my vision is even better than it was with my soft lenses. As a soft contact lens devotee I would never have considered it could be any better! I went to the beach at the weekend and normally this would end with dry itchy eyes from the salty sea air, but not anymore.
I went into this OrthoK trial with no real expectations of the end result, I just saw it as a great opportunity to try a product we offer our patients and experience what they would be going through. It was the best decision I have ever made for my eyes! I can't imagine going back to my old routine and will definitely carry on with these new lenses.
The only sad part is, after 20 years of needing glasses but not wanting to wear them, a small part of me will now miss creating different looks with frames – luckily I have access to the whole Kathryn Anthony collection at work, so can still sample all the styles!"
