A happy Ortho-K early adopterOrtho-K contacts for kids and adults with active lifestyles
Asian Eye Institute now offers Orthokeratology or Ortho-K, a revolutionary process that temporarily reduces or eliminates nearsightedness and astigmatism by reshaping the cornea without surgery.
Ortho-K uses gas-permeable contact lenses that you can wear at night while you sleep. Since the contact lenses are gas permeable, it allows more oxygen into the eye, reducing risks of irritations, dryness and allergies. The lenses are more resistant to bacteria and safe to wear even in a dusty environment. It can also stop the progression of nearsightedness among children and is suitable for adults who are not qualified or ready for LASIK surgery.
Supracor treatment: Freedom from reading glasses
As we age, we inevitably experience some deterioration in the eye function. In presbyopia, the natural lens of the eye becomes less flexible and loses its focusing ability. This results in difficulty in reading small print or seeing at very near distances, thus the need for reading glasses. For some, this affects both style and lifestyle.
Asian Eye breaks ground in the treatment of presbyopia with new laser technology from Technolas. It is the only eye care facility in the Philippines with the Supracor and Intracor technologies for bladeless procedures that reshape the cornea for both distance and near vision. Supracor and Intracor lasers are also suitable for post-cataract patients who wear glasses for reading.
