I have been using Ortho K overnight vision correction lenses for over three years and am delighted with the results. Before hearing about the procedure I had been considering laser surgery but was concerned about potential side effects so I was pleased to find something non-invasive and completely reversible. As a keen sailor I was also looking for a better solution than my existing glasses which were prone to condensation and smudging from rain or spray in rough weather making them far from ideal.
Since using the Ortho K lenses I have been very impressed with the dramatic improvement to my vision, so much so that I do not need to wear them every night. I can now see distant objects more clearly than ever before which is particularly useful when trying to identify navigation lights at sea in the dark, something I used to find difficult in the past even with my glasses. Driving is also much easier, particularly at night. Never having worn any kind of contact lenses before I was initially a little concerned about whether they might cause any discomfort at night but this has proved not to be the case and they have never disturbed my sleep. Overall I am very pleased indeed with the lenses and would recommend them to anyone interested in trying the procedure. I would also highly recommend the excellent service I have received from Charles Babumba at City Eyes Ophthalmic Opticians whose in-depth knowledge and professionalism have impressed me from the initial consultation right through to the continuing aftercare.
