SPECIALIST CONTACT LENSES
We help our patients choose specialist contact lenses, including lenses for patients with high magnitude refractive error, astigmatism or keratoconus. Such lenses are then manufactured individually for each patient – on the basis of detailed parameters measured during examination.
We also offer Myopia Control, a process aimed at slowing the progression of myopia in children and young people by using special soft lenses or ortho-corrective lenses.
SwissLens is a Swiss manufacturer of contact lenses which offers high quality contact lenses in an unlimited range of parameters and materials. We also offer a so-called myopia control, which is a process that may help to slow down myopia progression in children and adolescents through the use of special soft lenses or ortho-K lenses. Stiff contact lenses can correct virtually any type of vision defect. They guarantee ideal vision acuity, because they do not change their shape while being worn. Moreover, they may prevent the defect in short-sighted children from progressing (so called ortho-correction). Stiff contact lenses are produced from modern materials which of high oxygen permeability, therefore they are the healthiest and the safest solution for our eyes. With the use of stiff contact lenses we can correct:
Graduate of Clinical Optometry at Pennsylvania State College of Optometry, Salus University, and postgraduate studies in optometry at Karol Marcinkiewicz Medical University in Poznań. She has been working in this field since 2007. For over five years, she has been working in optometric offices which specialise in the evaluation of vision acuity and the selection of the most suitable glasses and contact lenses. She constantly improves her professional qualifications through participating in numerous courses and contact lenses workshops. In her private life she is a dog lover, she spends her leisure time travelling, doing yoga and cycling.
Ortho-correction, also called orthokeratology, is a reversible, nonsurgical method of correction of myopia which is an alternative to laser vision correction. It is based on wearing specialist contact lenses while sleeping and taking them off in the morning. During the night the lenses gently model the shape of the cornea in order to ensure acute vision during the day without wearing glasses or traditional contact lenses. What is more, as numerous studies have proven, it is a safe and effective way to inhibit the progression of myopia in children and young people.
Because ortho-correction is a process, it requires a few follow-up visits.
1st visit – qualifying examination (ca. 40 minutes)
After a positive qualification, individually manufactured lenses will be ordered. The manufacturing and shipping takes about 2 weeks.
2nd visit – (ca. 90 minutes)
3rd visit – in the morning after the 2nd visit (ca. 40 minutes)
4th visit – after one week, in the morning (ca. 40 minutes)
5th visit – after one month (ca. 40 minutes)
Follow-up visits – every 6 month (3 months for children)
Renewal of the lens – after one year
