All About OrthoK is dedicated to taking eye care to new heights, helping you achieve better visual health and comfort. This is why we only offer the highest standard of eye care products and services in the area, especially when it comes to myopia control. Let your Orthokeratology specialist talk about some of them in detail.
Thorough Eye Exams
Comprehensive eye exams are the key elements of a solid preventive eye care plan. They help in the prompt detection of underlying sight-threatening conditions, paving the way for their early management. The sooner we treat them, the better chances we have of stopping their progression and maintaining your visual health.
Dr. Robert Gerowitz is a nationally recognized Optometrist who is best known for his contributions to OrthoK therapy. In fact, he is the Continuing Education Administrator of the American Academy of Orthokeratology and Myopia Control. This vision correction method involves using special OrthoK molds overnight, which are engineered to correct vision problems while you sleep. You may remove them in the morning and enjoy the rest of the day with enhanced eyesight without having to use your prescription eyewear. Studies show this method’s effectiveness at slowing the progression of myopia and other refractive errors.
Ocular Disease Management
When it comes to managing ocular conditions, an accurate diagnosis must first be established. Apart from your Optometrist’s many years’ worth of knowledge, training, and experience, we also use the latest technologies when assessing your eye structures and their respective functions. Our Optomap® retinal exam, for example, allows us to see your retina in a detailed, panoramic view. This way, we can pinpoint the root cause of the problem, serving as our guide when creating your individualized eye care plan.
We have a wide range of optical devices to help improve your visual acuity. Our high-quality eyeglasses and contact lenses come available in different designs, colors, and styles to match your lifestyle while giving you enhanced eyesight. Our Orthokeratology contact molds are also increasingly becoming popular for the convenience and improved quality of life they provide.
