EMME Visioncare is so much more than glasses. We are qualified in primary eye care, which means you are welcome to consult us about any eye concerns you may have. Our team of registered optometrists and opticians is endorsed by Singapore’s Optometrists and Opticians Board to prescribe ophthalmic lenses for vision correction and therapeutic contact lenses.
Orthokeratology — often called Ortho-K or OK lens for short — is a form of safe, reversible, non-invasive and non-surgical vision correction available to both adults and children.
Ortho-K is a special type of night-time contact lens worn during sleep to restore clear vision without glasses. You may have heard of them advertised as "Dream Lenses", "Good Night Lenses", or "Eye Braces" by some practices.
Ortho-K is precise corneal reshaping technology. A good way to understand orthokeratology is to think of them as "eye braces". The rigid contact lenses are customised to slowly and gently reshape the eye’s surface, like how Invisalign and braces shape teeth. As orthokeratology requires specific instruments, skills and training, not all optometrists can prescribe these lenses for you in Singapore. An optometrist with the expertise and experience in assessing and fitting Ortho-K lenses is sometimes called an orthokeratologist, analogous to how an orthodontist fits dental braces. Book an eye screening appointment with us today to check if you are suitable for Ortho-K.
Myopia, also known as near-sightedness, is a highly prevalent condition in Singapore, especially among children. If you or your child has myopia, the earlier you seek intervention and treatment, the better your myopia control will be.
Our optometrist will start with a detailed assessment of your child's eyes, analysing their past and current eyesight changes. We will also take their age, family history and risk factors into careful consideration before deciding with you on an individualised treatment plan to best manage your child's short-sightedness.
We graph your child's prescription changes to visualise their rate of myopia progression and forecast their eventual level of myopia with different treatment options. We will also closely monitor their progress during treatment to tailor and adjust the treatment plan for maximum myopia control.
