How can Ortho-k help you?

Ortho-k is a safe, easy alternative and non surgical process that uses custom fitted rigid contact lenses to reshape the cornea of your eye while you sleep.

No more glasses, day time contact lenses or laser surgery, making ortho-k a solution for many children and teenagers as well as adults.

Ortho-k (Orthokeratology) is a sophisticated non-surgical process that temporarily reshapes the cornea with special contact lenses while you sleep. You remove the lenses when you awake and are able to go throughout the day without any other vision correction. Ortho-k uses a specially designed oxygen permeable therapeutic contact lens for corneal refractive therapy.  If you stop wearing the lenses regularly while you sleep, your vision will return to its original state in as little as 72 hours.

Ortho-k treats short sightedness (myopia) with or without minor astigmatism. And because there are no age restrictions on ortho-k, it may be the perfect option for any member of the family including active adolescents. Optometrist Anthony Liska can provide more information about ortho-k and if it is right for you.  Book for an appointment
