Eyecare. We Care.

Montgomery Optometrists are the first optometrists in East Lothian to introduce Ortho K (short for Orthokeratology) – a vision correction therapy that remoulds the cornea to give clear, comfortable vision without the need to wear contact lenses during the day.

The patient wears precision gas permeable lenses to reshape the cornea while they are asleep, so that they have perfect vision during the daytime, without any further need for spectacles or contact lenses. It is a painless, convenient, low risk and non-surgical alternative to laser eye treatment.

With Ortho K contact lenses like Nocturnals™ there are no more restrictions on how long you wear your lenses, no more irritation in dry, smoky environments or at the end of a long day.

Nocturnals™ are ideal for short-sighted people who:

  • Want clear natural vision all day, every day
  • Want freedom from contact lenses and glasses during the day
  • Are looking for a comfortable, semi-permanent alternative to correct short-sightedness
  • Find soft lenses do not meet the comfort their lifestyle requires
  • Play sports or have hobbies where contact lenses are inconvenient
  • Like the idea of laser eye surgery but are worried about the risks

'Orthokeratology', the name of this revolutionary new eye treatment, has in fact been around for some 40 years, but has only recently come into its own as a result of advances in corneal topographers, lens materials and manufacturing.
