WHAT IS DIFFERENT ABOUT iGO OVC ORTHO K OPTICIANS?
iGO selects opticians based on their experience and interest in contact lens fitting. You can only get iGO OVC overnight lenses from an accredited iGO ortho k optician. These opticians MUST have successfully completed an online training programme before they can fit iGO overnight contact lenses.
WHAT MAKES iGO ORTHO K OPTICIANS SO SPECIAL?
iGO's practitioners must invest in special computerised equipment including a topographer which is used to capture a precise image of the surface of each eye based on thousands of readings taken instantaneously across the cornea. This image map is used to determine the design parameters of the customised iGO OVC contact lenses which are made in the USA.
WHY DOESNT MY OPTICIAN OFFER ORTHO K?
All iGO Orthok opticians are independent practitioners since the bespoke treatment required for ortho k overnight vision correction demands a level of clinical expertise and service capability which is frequently not available through the high street multiples. Unless an optician has been specifically trained, and is an experienced contact lens fitter with all the necessary equipment they cannot offer ortho k treatment.
WHAT ELSE DO iGO ORTHO K OPTICIANS OFFER?
iGO ortho-k opticians offer a monthly iGO OVC aftercare plan to ensure you have full access to their expertise at any time should you encounter problems or simply want to raise a question with them. Through your aftercare plan, they will ensure your lenses are replaced at regular intervals, usually every six months and will also provide you with the recommended cleaning solution - Avizor GP Multi or Avizor EverClean - to enable you to keep your lenses in pristine condition.
