This are like bracers for the eyes. This proven, non-invasive and fully reversible technique, uses hydraulic forces to shape the surface of the eyes, so that patients can see clearly in the morning without the need of contact lenses and glasses.
Many see this as a very good alternative to refractive surgery. These are the same lens used for children myopia control.
A pre-orthokeratology assessment is required to see if this is a suitable technique for the patient.
Patients with complex prescription may find it challenging to find suitable spectacles and contact lenses. If you have the following:
- High Myopia, those with -1300 degree and higher
- High Astigmatism, those with astigmatism of -250 degree and higher
- Above combined with Presbyopia (老花眼)) and want contact lenses and/or glasses
We are here to help. Contact us for more info.
These are special lenses for patients with presbyopia (老花眼), these lenses enable them to see far and near objects, without the need to wear special spectacles.

As post Refractive Surgery/ Lasik corneal is much flatter than normal cornea, thus normal contact lenses may not be suitable for them.
We require special contact lenses for these patients.
Many of these patients when fitted may experience better vision when compared to their glasses.
Come speak to us to understand more.
Keratoconus is a progressive eye condition that generally begins in late adolescence or early adulthood. It involves the cornea getting too thin and bulging into a cone-like shape.
This can cause distorted and blurry vision, as the light rays are no longer focused into your eyes the way they should be. It can cause nearsightedness and irregular astigmatism. In early cases, spectacle lenses and common contact lenses can correct their vision. In more advance cases, special contact lenses that are required for these patients to improve their vision.
If you have Keratoconus, and need help, do come speak to us., we will be happy to see how we can help you.
