Fact or Science Fiction?

Ortho-K is the Future of Vision Correction.

Who doesn’t love Science Fiction? It is fun to imagine a future of hover cars, robot maids, and contact lenses that reshape your cornea so you don’t need to wear glasses anymore.   Hold the phone- that last one isn’t fiction!  It is Orthokeratology and Drs. Brenden White and Brittany Capstick at InVision Eye Health are your local experts.

Ortho-K is a non-surgical procedure that eliminates the need for glasses or daytime contact lenses. It improves vision by gently reshaping your eye WHILE YOU SLEEP using specially designed therapeutic contact lenses. You just put the specially fitted lenses in at bedtime, and when you awake, you will have clear, sharp, natural vision for your waking hours.

This safe and effective treatment can correct near-sightedness (including high prescriptions), farsightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia (blurred near vision). It is a great alternative to LASIK for those who don’t want the risk or are not ready for surgery.

Ortho-K is great for kids, 8 years and older, who struggle wearing glasses and contacts– it can even prevent their nearsightedness from worsening as they grow.

Ortho-K is also great for adults who struggle with contact lenses due to dry eye symptoms or allergies.  Maybe  you are tired of being blind without your glasses when you wake up in the morning or in the shower.  Wouldn’t it be great to snorkel and actually see the fish?

If you are interested in Ortho-Ks for yourself or your child, call us or come in for a no charge OrthoK consultation with Dr. White or Dr. Capstick.  They will be happy to answer your questions, explain the fitting and follow up process, and make sure that your eyes and Rx make you a good candidate.

We’re still waiting on the robot maids, but the future of vision correction is already here!
