  • What can I do as a parent to ensure my child's Ortho-K treatment is safe and effective?
    As parents, it is important to enforce the habit of wearing Ortho-K lenses every night (or as much as possible, given certain circumstances), as well as encourage proper cleaning habits, such as daily cleaning with a specialized lens sponge and biweekly soaking in protein remover solution. Should these disciplines not be followed, there will be an increased risk of eye infection due build up of dirt on the lenses, as well as reduced effectiveness in controlling your child's myopia. If it is not possible for your child to follow the above steps by themselves, parents must be ready to step in to help clean the lenses. If that too is not possible, we highly recommend seeking other myopia control options that may be more suitable. During your clinical visits, we will teach you and/or your child how to wear and care for the Ortho-K contact lenses. If you have any questions about how to do any of the above, our clinic staff will be more than happy to assist!
  • How effective is MiyoSmart?
    A 2 year study has shown that MiyoSmart can slow down myopia progression up to 60%. Ongoing studies have shown that MiyoSmart continues to have a myopia control effect on the subjects.

  • What can I do as a parent to maximize treatment effectiveness?
    Proper fitting for comfort and positioning is essential for both DIMS and HALT treatments to realize maximum potential. As a parent, you must check in with your child to see if the glasses are being worn properly, frequently, as well as if the glasses are bent or crooked. If you require adjustments or further tips on how to ensure effective treatment, our clinic staff are more than happy to help out!
  • How does Essilor's Stellest lens control myopia progression?
    Stellest uses H.A.L.T. (Highly Aspherical Lenslet Target), a myopia-controlling lens design developed by Essilor. The lens features 11 rings formed by contiguous aspherical lenslets, with the center of the lens providing the wearer with clear vision. H.A.L.T.'s design is unique in that it provides a "volume of myopic defocus", meaning that the myopic defocus effect that halts myopic eye growth maintains efficacy and clarity at multiple viewing angles through the lens, such as when viewing things far away, close, or to the side. This gives the wearer more flexibility and ease of use, especially for children who may not always be wearing the glasses in the correct manner.
  • How does the Hoya's MiyoSmart lens control myopia progression?
    Using DIMS (Defocus Incorporated Multiple Segments), a patented technology jointly developed by Hoya and Polytechnic University of Hong Kong, the MiyoSmart lens provides vision correction while creating a myopic defocus effect, of which is the key to slowing myopia progression. This myopic defocus is created through a series of honey comb-shaped, +3.50D lenslets that surround the periphery of the central optical zone. With proper fitting and constant wear, the myopic defocus can trick the eye into halting myopia-causing eyeball growth. This happens without the user's awareness, as the central optical zone still provides unobstructed clear vision for day-to-day wear.
  • How effective is Stellest?
    A 1 year study has shown that HALT lenses were able to slow down myopia progression in children by 67%, compared to children wearing single-vision lenses. Ongoing studies to this day have also confirmed that the lenses continue to be effective. See below for more information on research done with HALT: British Journal of Ophthalmology: One-year myopia control efficacy of spectacle lenses with aspherical lenslets
  • Are either of these myopia control lenses suitable for my child?
    We recommend this treatment for myopic children who are ages 6 and up. Most importantly, they must be willing to wear the glasses throughout the day at school and at home for the treatment to have maximum efficacy. We highly recommend making an appointment with our optometrist first before deciding on which myopia control treatment is best for your child.
  • How do I get started with Ortho-K?
    After a comprehensive assessment with our optometrist, we can give you a professional opinion about whether Ortho-K is suitable for you or your child, and guide you through the next steps.
  • Is Ortho-K safe?
    Ortho-k is non-surgical, reversible, and removes the need to wear glasses or contact lenses during the day, where recreational activities and dust in the air can cause displacement and discomfort. Should there be a need to do so, the treatment can also be paused at any time. However, it is important that the patient learn how to properly handle, clean and store the lenses each time after wearing. Close compliance with these steps, as well as eye checks, will ensure the eyes will not become infected or scratched. As one of the first few clinics in Hong Kong to offer Ortho-K in the 90s, our treatment program is time-honoured and effective, as many of our clients can testify. Many of our adult clients today are still wearing their night lenses since childhood.
  • How does Ortho-K work?
    Ortho-K lenses are designed to be worn at night during sleep, during which it will reshape the soft cornea of the patient's eye. After taking off contact lenses off in the morning, the patient will experience clear vision without the need for eyewear. In addition to clear vision, Ortho-K contact lenses also form an imprinted "defocusing ring" on the cornea. This "ring" is what creates a myopia control effect, sending a signal to the eye to halt horizontal eye elongation. Both the clear vision and myopia control effect can last up to 16 hours before they start to wear off.
  • How long/often must the lenses be worn?
    You gain the most benefit from wearing the Ortho-K lenses daily, every night before bed. This is important for effective myopia control in children and adolescents. Keep in mind that your clear vision will wear off over the course of several days if the lenses aren't worn during sleep.
  • Who can wear Ortho-K?
    Children 7 years old and up can start wearing Ortho-K, depending on their prescription. Adults up to the age of 70 are also potential candidates for Ortho-K lenses. Consider Ortho-K if you suffer dry eyes or irritation from day-time contact lenses, or simply want to enjoy daily life free of eye-wear.
  • Is Ortho-K effective?
    Studies from The Myopia Research Centre of the Hong Kong PolyU found that, when compared to children who wear spectacles, Ortho-K can slow down Myopia progression by up to 50%. This makes Ortho-K great for safeguarding better vision, especially for adolescents during key development stages. Ortho-K is also great for adults those who want the convenience of clear vision without eye-wear during the day. This is especially convenient for sports and work environments with lots of dust and other eye irritants.
  • What if my child is unsuitable for Ortho-K treatment?
    If for whatever reason your child is not suitable for Ortho-K treatment, we recommend looking into our other myopia control options: Myopia control lenses by Hoya (MiyoSmart) and Essilor (Stellest) Myopia control daily soft contact lenses by ACUVUE® (Abiliti™ 1-Day Soft Therapeutic Lens)
