What is Orthokeratology?

Orthokeratology (ortho-k) is the fitting of specially designed gas permeable contact lenses that you wear overnight. While you are asleep, the lenses gently reshape the front surface of your eye (cornea) so you can see clearly the following day after you remove the lenses when you wake up. Ortho-k lenses are prescribed for two purposes:
To correct refractive errors (primarily nearsightedness, but also astigmatism and hyperopia). In some cases, ortho-k also is used to correct presbyopia.
To slow the progression of childhood myopia.

Back to School is Approaching...make sure to book that Eye Test!

Hope that everyone has had a great Christmas!
Only two weeks until our kids head back to school. Remember to make sure that they have had their comprehensive eye exam before then. Eye exams for children are extremely important, as early identification of a child's vision problem can be crucial and children often are more responsive to treatment when problems are diagnosed early.
For school-aged children it is recommended that they should have an eye exam every two years or as directed by their Optometrist.
Use our simple Online booking portal to make an appointment.
