Duncan Perry

Duncan Perry, a 33-year old sales manager from Fulham, west London, has been an Ortho K guinea pig for four months. Though only minimally short-sighted, without correction he squints and is very tired by the end of the day. ‘I’d rather not wear anything, but I didn’t fancy laser surgery,’ he says. ‘My optometrist recommended I try Ortho K, which cost about the same as my ordinary lenses. They are harder than normal lenses and at first were more uncomfortable to put in and take out. You have to use eye drops to lubricate your eyes. But I’ve got used to it and, of course you’re asleep while they’re in, so there’s no prolonged discomfort.’
