A fast-working, gentle way to improve your vision
Imagine living with clearer vision – without wearing contact lenses during the day! That’s the amazing benefit of Orthokeratology, also known as Ortho-K lenses.
Ortho-K is the no-recovery time alternative to invasive surgery.
Ortho-K is a non-surgical, reversible procedure that uses custom-made contact lenses to gradually, gently reshape the front surface of your corneas to provide clearer vision. Unlike traditional contact lenses, you wear Ortho-K lenses overnight while you sleep, and remove them each morning. Your reshaped corneal surface then lets you see clearly for the rest of the day – without the need for prescription glasses or contact lenses!
With Ortho-K lenses, you’ll usually notice an improvement to your vision the very next day, with your eyes stabilising after about a week of treatment. Because Orthokeratology doesn’t permanently change the surface of your eyes, they will revert back to their former state in about one to four weeks if you stop wearing the lenses.

Custom fitting Ortho-K lenses exactly to your eyes is a complex process, with a number of initial fitting and follow up appointments.
Ortho-K lenses pricing
Your total cost for Orthokeratology treatment at Eyefix Optometrists is $1,400. This treatment package includes a pair of 100% customised Ortho-K contact lenses, a contact lens care solution value pack, comfort drops, lens sucker, and as many appointments as you need over a 12 month period.
These fees are split into:
- a non-refundable payment of $150, payable after your first night of Ortho-K wear
- an additional non-refundable payment of $250, and
- a final payment of $1,000, payable after your first month of wearing Ortho-K.
If you decide between your one month and three month aftercare appointments that you can’t tolerate wearing Ortho-K lenses, we will refund the final $1,000 payment.
Replacement Ortho-K lenses are $400 per lens. The typical lifespan of Ortho-K lenses is 12-24 months, depending on how clean you keep the lenses.
