How long has it been since your last eye test?
Do you want to correct your vision without wearing prescription glasses or contact lenses? Are you looking for a non-invasive alternative to laser eye surgery?
For patients with short-sightedness, long-sightedness or astigmatism, orthokeratology may offer an effective solution. Book an appointment with Dr John Musumeci to correct your vision with orthokeratology. Our Fairfield team is available for appointments six days a week.
Also known as Ortho-K, orthokeratology is a non-invasive method for correcting your vision, which allows you to see clearly without glasses or daytime contact lenses.
All you need to do is wear specially made contact lenses overnight. While you sleep, these lenses will gently reshape your cornea, correcting the symptoms associated with myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. When you wake up in the morning, you can remove the lenses and enjoy clear, corrected vision for the whole day.
Ortho-K contact lenses worn overnight and removed in the morning have been shown to be effective in controlling the progression of a child’s myopia (shortsightedness) especially during the growth period of adolescence.
Age is no limit when it comes to orthokeratology. The treatment can be effective for patients of all ages and John can recommend if it is suitable for you. Ortho-K lenses are easy to insert and remove, and they usually pose no problems for children or adults.
Whether you want to correct the effects of ageing eyes or you’re interested in Ortho-K to control your child’s myopia, John would be happy to help you. In many cases, orthokeratology is recommended as part of children’s eyecare as it has been shown to slow the development of progressive myopia.
Most patients will see an immediate improvement in their vision after just one night of wearing Ortho-K lenses. For maximum vision correction, most patients need to wear the lenses for just two weeks. However, the effects of orthokeratology are not permanent. To maintain the desired vision correction, it’s important to continue wearing Ortho-K lenses every night.
