Do you want to see clearly during the day without having to wear glasses or daytime contact lenses? Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT), also known as orthokeratology, may be an effective option for you.
Here at Insightful Eye Care, we are proud to be among a handful of elite practices offering orthokeratology in Australia. With locations in Dingley and Richmond, our friendly and professional optometrist are here to assist you with orthokeratology in Melbourne.
Orthokeratology (Ortho K) is non-surgical and non-invasive, unlike alternatives like laser eye treatment. Ortho-K treatment involves wearing specially made contact lenses overnight while you sleep. These lenses reshape the cornea (front surface of your eye), allowing you to see clearly throughout the day.
When you wake up in the morning, you can remove the lenses and go about your day without having to worry about glasses or contact lenses.
Ortho-K treatment offers Melbourne patients freedom from their glasses without having to resort to surgery. As the treatment is fully reversible, you will have to continue wearing the Ortho-K lenses every night to give yourself the best vision but it also allows you the flexibility to stop at any time, if your lifestyle no longer suits or you want to go back to wearing daytime contact lenses or glasses.
Orthokeratology is one of the most effective treatments in the management of progressive myopia (short-sightedness), allowing us to control or slow down the growth of the eye and reduce the prescription for myopia control.
Ortho-K lenses are specially made contact lenses that you wear overnight, while you sleep. Rigid gas permeable, these lenses gently mould the corneal shape in order to address refractive errors such as myopia and astigmatism. Comfortable and easy to use, Ortho-K lenses offer Melbourne locals a convenient solution for improved vision. Orthokeratology is suitable for people of all ages, including young children and adults.
