Sometimes referred to as Ortho-K, orthokeratology is an eye treatment that involves the fitting of special gas-permeable contact lenses that help to gradually and gently reshape the cornea. Worn overnight, the contact lenses are removed in the morning, providing clear vision throughout the day. Orthokeratology is used to treat several eye conditions, including hyperopia, myopia and astigmatism, and may, in some cases, even eliminate their symptoms.
Behavioural optometry is an area of optometry employed to not only help prevent eye problems from occurring, but to also treat any that may have developed. Centred around the activities that we carry out on a day-to-day basis, from reading and writing to using computers, this form of optometry focuses on a number of eye issues, from coordination and distance focus to the assessment and management of a child’s vision processing.
