Would you like to have freedom from glasses or contact lenses during the day?
Ortho-Keratology (or Ortho-K) is a non-surgical alternative to mainstream vision correction.
It may sound futuristic, but our optometrists can fit you with special contact lenses worn while you sleep that actually correct your short-sightedness or myopia. You can actually be productive while you sleep!
Ortho-K is the perfect solution for active people, children, teenagers, people who struggle with all-day conventional contact lens wear and anyone who’d love the freedom from daily contact lens or glasses use. It is ideally suited for low to moderate myopes with or without mild astigmatism so it is best to consult our optometrists to see if you’re a suitable candidate.
Ortho-K has also been shown to slow the progression of myopia in children and young adults. This is an ideal solution for an early myope – especially if one or both parents are short-sighted. It is a safe, reliable and reversible alternative to LASIK or refractive surgery.
Our optometrists use state-of-the-art equipment to assess your suitability to Ortho-K. Once suitability has been verified a custom-designed contact lens is used to gently reshape the cornea (the surface of the eye). This bespoke lens is worn only while you sleep, upon waking it is removed and you have clear vision like you’re wearing your normal glasses or contact lenses ALL DAY!
