Get the Edge with Ortho-k

Orthokeratology, commonly referred to as ortho-k, is not just a solution for managing myopia but also a groundbreaking vision enhancement technique for athletes. This revolutionary method, often referred to as "overnight vision correction," has become increasingly popular among athletes who seek clear vision without the encumbrance of eyeglasses or contact lenses on the sports field.

A Clear Vision of Athletic Success

Athletes rely on their vision for optimal performance. Whether you're an aspiring basketball player, a dedicated swimmer, or a passionate soccer player, you understand that clear and unobstructed vision is paramount in sports. The ability to track moving objects, maintain spatial awareness, and make precise judgments in a fraction of a second can be the difference between success and failure.

Ortho-k offers athletes a remarkable advantage. It works by gently reshaping the cornea while you sleep, temporarily correcting your vision. When you wake up, you'll enjoy crisp and clear vision throughout the day without visual aids. For athletes, this can make a world of difference.

The Benefits of Ortho-k for Athletes

In recent years, contact lenses have emerged as a promising avenue for myopia control:

  • Improved Performance:

    Athletes often perform at their best when they feel completely in tune with their bodies. Ortho-k enables you to focus entirely on your sport without distractions or discomfort from eyeglasses or contact lenses.

  • Peripheral Vision

    Sports activities demand excellent peripheral vision. With the benefit of ortho-k, you can experience an expanded field of view, allowing you to react quickly to your surroundings and competitors.

  • Consistency

    One of the challenges athletes face is maintaining consistent performance. Ortho-k ensures you have the same crystal-clear vision every time you step onto the field, regardless of the circumstances.

  • Reduced Risk of Eyewear-Related Injuries

    Eyeglasses and traditional contact lenses can break or dislodge during physical activities, potentially leading to eye injuries. Ortho-k eliminates this risk, allowing athletes to focus on their performance.

When we changed insurance, we decided to try a new optical company. We came to the Tesson Ferry loca... tion and I'm so glad we did. All 4 of my kids wear glasses, so it's an ordeal to get them all in for appointments. The staff here have always been so amazing. Taking the time to get to know my kids on a personal level. Making them smile and giggle with little jokes. Explaining to the kids what to expect because they are nervous. So many little things that add to an overall amazing experience! Again, I am highly impressed with the level of customer service we continue to experience at this location 💗
