Orthokeratology

At Spectacle Hub, we now offer specialised overnight contact lens treatment to correct vision. These are specialised contact lenses which are specially moulded and only worn during sleep to correct vision during the day. This is a great alternative to laser corrective surgery. It works by gently re-shaping the cornea (the front surface of the eye) in a way which allows it to focus well without the need for contact lenses or glasses during the day. It is safe and effective for most patients and the results often exceed expectations.

Orthokeratology Contact Lenses Melbourne

What are Ortho-K Lenses?

Ortho-K lenses are very much like standard contact lenses. However, they are worn only overnight and overtime they reshape the eye to ensure that in future, your eyes should be working as best as possible again with no need for glasses or contact lenses.

How Does Ortho-K Lens Work?

Here are some basic facts about how Ortho-K works;

The ortho-k treatment process involves wearing a special set of rigid gas permeable (RGP) contact lenses every night for roughly six weeks. These lenses gently reshape the cornea into its proper shape over time when worn with orthokeratology sleeping eye goggles. This allows light from distant objects to be focused properly on the retina instead of being formed into blurred images. Ortho-k’s are worn during sleep only and removed upon waking up. This process takes time to complete and will vary from person to person depending on individual anatomy and visual needs. If you are interested in learning more about how Ortho-K works and whether it may be right for you, please contact one of our offices near you today.
