Orthokeratology (Ortho K)
With Ortho K, you can correct your vision while you sleep. Ask us about the safe, reversible alternative to laser eye surgery.
Brazionis Eyecare is one of the few Melbourne-based optometrists that offer this revolutionary, non-surgical overnight vision correction that gently reshapes the eye with a custom-made contact lens while you sleep. We utilise the latest digital technology to map out the curvature of the eye (known as corneal topography), which then allows the creation of custom-made lens that are worn overnight to gently mould the surface of the eye. Ortho-K is an ideal treatment for those with appropriate prescriptions who wish to see clearly without the inconvenience of wearing glasses and day time contact lenses, or are apprehensive about the risks associated with laser eye surgery.
Ortho K is suitable for a large percentage of the population, including:
- Children – as young as six years old (potential to control progression)
- Short and long sighted people (-6.00 to +3.00)
- People with astigmatism (-2.00)
- Adults – reading glasses wearers
- People who play contact sports and water sports
- People afraid to lose their contact lenses or glasses during important tasks
- Dry eye and hay fever sufferers
- People working in dusty/dirty environments
- People not ideal for laser surgery
- People with changing/progressing prescriptions
Safe for your child
Have you considered Ortho K for your child? Ortho K is a great treatment for children with short-sightedness (Myopia) because it can slow down the rate of Myopia in children. As children get older, their vision can worsen, which may lead to increased risk of complicated eye conditions. Ortho K can help to minimise the progression of Myopia with the added benefit of your child not having to wear glasses or contact lens during the day time.
At Brazionis Eyecare, we have a very high success rate with Ortho K, particularly with children. Our team can provide guidance to you and your child to ensure that Ortho K is an easy, safe and convenient treatment. We teach you and your child how to use the contact lenses. In some cases, clear vision can be achieved overnight, but for most cases, it only takes a few nights of wear for results.
