Ortho-K lenses have been shown to be an effective method of slowing down the progression of myopia while also having the benefit of providing freedom from glasses and contacts during the day.

Ortho-K lenses have a good safety profile and is reversible. So if you are looking for freedom from glasses or interested in myopia control call in to book a consultation!
