Corneal Reshaping (Orthokeratology/Paragon CRT)

Orthokeratology is a method for solving nearsightedness, also known as myopia, and also can help with mild forms of astigmatism. This is achieved with the use of a special contact lens which very gently reshapes the cornea. These special contact lenses are worn at night and the correction takes place while the patient sleeps.

If applied correctly, you will experience completely clear, sharp vision during the day without the need to use glasses or contact lenses. The clear vision experienced during the day is temporary, so to ensure best results these special contacts will need to be worn every night. This type of correction is most popular with adults and kids whom are involved in sports as a convenient alternative to regular contacts or eyeglasses.

LASIK

LASIK (Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis) has become one of the most popular vision correction procedures available. This surgical treatment involves reshaping the cornea with the use of a laser beam. Patients most likely to benefit from LASIK surgery are those who are farsighted, nearsighted or astigmatic.

Although this procedure has been widely successful, with millions of patients seeing positive results, it is not suitable for all patients. Dr Hayden will need to carry out a comprehensive examination of your eyes to find out if LASIK surgery is the right procedure to correct your vision.
