Centre Eyes is an independently owned and operated optometrist in North Sydney. Our high standards for eye care extend to prescription glasses, various types of contact lens and Orthokeratology for North Sydney residents.
Orthokeratology North Sydney
Clients who want unaided vision during the day can use orthokeratology contact lenses at night. This is a non-surgical method that uses rigid lenses to correct the physical shape of the eye while the patient is asleep. They must be designed specifically for each patient, but their ability to correct vision is impressive, and many find wearing contacts at night preferable to longer daytime wear. Centre eyes prescribes lens for and supports orthokeratology; neutral bay residents have several options for vision correction.
Ortho K North Sydney
This is another term for Orthokeratology, where lens worn at night correct daytime vision. Because lenses are only worn at night, for 7 – 8 hours while the eyes remain shut, many clients find this preferable to wearing glasses or contacts for the duration of the day.

Keratoconus Contact Lenses North Sydney
Keratoconus is a degenerative disorder of the eye in which the cornea becomes conical in shape rather than curved. This condition strongly compromises vision, and will steadily worsen over time. Though the resulting poor vision can be compensated for with glasses Keratoconus is often treated with contact lenses and Orthokeratology. This contact lens system tends to use hard lenses to reshape the cornea rather that soft lenses to refocus the light. It also helps slow the degenerative vision loss. Individuals who suspect they have any vision problems including keratoconus should have an immediate eye exam.
