At the SEKAL center, specific contact lens tests and applications are carried out under certain circumstances for the patient’s refractive defect. Special cases are: ectatic corneal pathologies (eg keratoconus) or refractive defects in young patients. Following the doctor’s suggestion, the necessary tests are performed for the application of the right contact lenses to correct the vision defect.
Orthokeratology is a corrective method that uses rigid lenses, applied only at night, modeling the cornea, allowing the temporary correction (daylight hours) of the patient’s refractive defect. This method is particularly suitable for young patients with moderate ametropia who wish stop wearing glasses.
