Vision correction is a general term used to describe a variety of optometric techniques for correcting less-than-perfect vision.

Corneal Reshaping (Corneal Refractive Therapy)
Orthokeratology, also called Corneal Refractive Therapy is a procedure for correcting myopia (nearsightedness) and mild astigmatism by gently reshaping the cornea with special contact lenses, which the patient places in his or her eyes overnight. Our office uses Paragon Corneal Refractive Therapy contact lenses which have been FDA-approved since 2002. One of the doctors’ children has successfully worn these contact lenses for the last 9 years!
When successful, patients will experience clear vision during the day without contact lenses or eyeglasses. However, the results are temporary, so the patient must continue to wear the lenses regularly at night to maintain optimum results. It is an exciting technology that helps prevent a child from becoming more near-sighted as they grow. Visit the Paragon website for more information.
