Vision Correction with Orthokeratology

Orthokeratology, or ortho-k, represents a modern and innovative myopia management treatment. This non-surgical approach involves custom-designed, gas-permeable contact lenses that temporarily reshape the cornea. These specialized lenses work their magic overnight, gently correcting your child's vision, and are removed in the morning for clear vision during the day.

The various benefits of ortho-k make it an appealing choice for many parents.

  • Daytime Freedom from Glasses or Contacts

    Ortho-k affords your child the freedom to see clearly throughout the day without needing eyeglasses or contact lenses.

  • Slows Myopia Progression

    Research has shown that ortho-k can help curb the development of nearsightedness, potentially reducing the risk of more severe vision problems in the future.

  • Convenient and Safe

    Ortho-k lenses are a safe and versatile option for managing myopia in children of various ages. They are easy to use and maintain, providing parents peace of mind.

  • Improved Self Confidence

    Ortho-k lenses can significantly boost your child's self-confidence with clear vision without visible vision correction.

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 💗
