Orthokeratology: Experience Crystal Clear Vision

Do you dream of a life without glasses or daytime contact lenses? Orthokeratology is a groundbreaking vision correction technique that can make that dream a reality. At Diamond Valley Optical, we’re here to guide you through this incredible innovation, helping you enjoy the freedom of hassle-free vision.

How Does Orthokeratology Work?

Orthokeratology (ortho-k) is a non-surgical method that uses gas-permeable contact lenses to reshape the cornea, the clear front part of the eye responsible for focusing light. These lenses are worn overnight, gently moulding the cornea to correct refractive errors like myopia (nearsightedness) while you sleep. When you remove the lenses in the morning, you can enjoy crisp, clear vision throughout the day without needing glasses or regular contact lenses.

Who Are Good Candidates?

Ortho-k can work wonders for both kids and adults. Here’s who can benefit from this groundbreaking technique:

  • Little legends with myopia
  • Active little sport stars
  • Busy professionals
  • Adults with presbyopia or myopia
  • Dry eye sufferers
  • Adults passionate about sports or outdoor activities

Ortho-k is a highly individualised treatment, and not everyone may be a perfect fit. Consult with our optometrists to determine if ortho-k is right for you or your child.

FAQ: Answering Your Ortho-K Questions

How Soon Can I Expect Results?

You’ll notice some improvement within a day or two, but the full effect of crystal-clear vision might take a few days or weeks to kick in. During this transformation period, your vision may not be as sharp as with regular contacts or glasses. So, you might need a temporary pair of glasses or contacts for specific tasks like night driving. But hang in there; your eyes are on the road to greatness!

Is Ortho-K Affordable?

Ortho-k might cost a bit more than regular contacts upfront, but you save on glasses and daytime contacts in the long term. Plus, you can’t put a price on clear vision, especially for your little legends. It’s an investment in your eyes and lifestyle.

Can I have LASIK after Ortho-K?

Absolutely! Ortho-k is like a pit stop on your journey to better vision. If you decide down the track that you want to go for LASIK or another vision correction surgery, it’s usually not a problem. Your eyes just need some time to reshape after ortho-k. Discuss it with your optometrist, and they’ll guide you through the process.
