Managing Myopia

Myopia is an eye condition which causes near objects to be clearer than objects in the distance. Myopia is affecting more and more people every year. Myopia is a condition that can be managed and minimised through the use of certain medical devices and activities.

Myopia usually progresses the fastest in children under the age of 10. It is important to pick myopia up early to reduce its lifelong impact.

Trevor Williams Optometry is proud to provide treatments for myopia management in Brisbane, Australia.

Orthokeratology (Ortho-K)

After Trevor concludes the fitting of the Ortho-K lenses with instruction and lessons on insertion and removal, the wearer fits the lenses at bedtime and removes upon waking. The treatment works by gently reshaping your eye while you sleep. It is safe and effective in correcting nearsightedness, longsightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia.

Orthokeratology is a fantastic alternative to procedures like LASIK.

An appointment with Trevor will decide your compatibility to this innovative treatment.
