Wearing neither glasses nor contact lenses during the day, but still being able to see well is also possible for those with not so perfect vision. In Germany, Orthokeratology is not a well-known method, it involves wearing lenses at night in order to see clearly during the day. Special Ortho-K contact lenses are individually fitted to your cornea to change its shape.
This procedure is non-permanent, as the cornea slowly reverts back to its natural state. Nevertheless, by precisely adjusting the lenses overnight, we allow the cornea to adjust, so that clear vision is possible throughout the day without further visual correction.

Controlling and monitoring myopia
Recent studies confirm that it is possible, especially in children, to slow down the progression of myopia. The Christian Bartels Optometry Center is specialized in the field of controlling and monitoring myopia. The most successful control option, which slows down the increase of myopia demonstrably, has been the modification of special contact lenses. Our team includes ambitious experts in this field.
Fitting of contact lenses and follow-ups
Many of our customers are surprised when we inform them about being able to wear contact lenses. We can tell you in advance: There is a perfect contact lens for every eye.
In order to find the best product for you, one undertakes an intensive adjustment, which includes regular follow-up inspections by the specialists at the Christian Bartels Optometry Center. We offer a wide range from conventional soft lenses to individual custom-made lenses – depending on what is best for you and your needs.
Multifocal contact lenses
Everybody who wears varifocals (also called bifocals, multifocals or progressive lenses) is familiar with the principle – good vision is possible at all distances without changing glasses. This principle also works with contact lenses. Using multifocal contacts, one is able to see clearly at all distances from near to far. These contact lenses are the optimal choice for people over forty years of age. Our staff will be pleased to provide individual consulting.
Fitting of special contact lenses
Some eye conditions are difficult to correct only with glasses. These include for example Keratoconus (deformation of the cornea) and Keratoplasty (corneal transplantation; due to the operation, the cornea at times can be unevenly formed). The staff at our Optometry Center belong to the few experts in Germany dealing with the care for contact lenses of such special cases. Individually adapted, dimensionally stable lenses often enable significantly better vision than glasses.
Measurement of the anterior corneal surface
State-of-the-art equipment enable the measurement of the cornea to the nearest hundredth of a millimeter. With these exact results, not only conclusions can be drawn on eyesight and corneal curvature. They are further a perfect starting point for the optimal contact lens fitting. Additionally, the measurements allow good conclusion about the health of your cornea.
