Envision Optical provides comprehensive eye health care to patients of all ages in Tweed Heads, NSW and Burleigh Waters, QLD. One of the treatments we offer is called orthokeratology.
Orthokeratology, or Ortho-K, can be effective for nearsighted (myopic), farsighted and astigmatic patients. Ideally, a patient’s prescription for Ortho-K falls between +2.00 to -6.00, with a maximum of -1.75 diopters of surface astigmatism. However, optometrists may attempt higher prescriptions in some cases.
Ortho-K involves specially-designed and fitted contact lenses and can be considered orthodontics for the eyes. It’s a safe, non-surgical and reversible method of vision correction for adults and children.
Patients wear Ortho-K contact lenses during sleep, and these lenses temporarily reshape the cornea to improve or promote clear vision. With Ortho-K, patients can enjoy clear vision without wearing daytime contact lenses or glasses.
