About Us

This is William

He was a good soccer player before starting on the Gentle Shaping System. Then he did corneal reshaping with Dr. Rob and by the end of the season, he was one of the leading scorers on his team!

He told us that he didn’t want to wear sports goggles and was worried the wind and dust on the field might bother his eyes during games if he wore regular contact lenses. He also didn’t want to wear glasses for the eighth-grade dance.

We’ve really enjoyed working with William this past year and best of all, his prescription didn’t increase like it had been doing before we saw him!

Orthokeratology / The Gentle Shaping System is a terrific way to improve children’s lives by controlling their myopia. Call us to find out more and for a free consultation in our office.
