Trevor Williams Optometry is proud to provide treatments for myopia management in Brisbane, Australia.
Also known as Ortho-K. This revolutionary, non-surgical treatment eliminates the need for glasses and traditional contact lenses.
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.
