Orthokeratology

Would you like to be free of glasses and contact lenses everyday?

Orthokeratology (or Ortho-k) might be suitable for you.

Ortho-K is a specialised contact lens and fitting. It involves wearing a rigid contact lens overnight which gently reshapes the cornea (the front of your eye). This means that during the day, you won’t require your glasses or contact lenses at all!

It is used to correct myopia and can also slow down how quickly your prescription can deteriorate. Ortho-K can be especially useful for those that are not good candidates for laser surgery, have dry eyes or work in conditions where wearing contact lenses throughout the day could cause problems.

Ortho-K lenses are completely customised for each and every patient, and require special measurement of the eye. Our optometrists will be able to walk you through each step of the fitting process.
