We are proud to offer Ortho K

Are you considering LASIK but wary of eye surgery?
Want to wake up and see the alarm clock?
Are your contact lenses drying your eyes out?
Is your child's prescription getting stronger every year?
Are your glasses bothersome when you go swimming or play sports?

Dr. Ben Gellis, at our Dr. Richard E. Hults & Assoc., Inc, is now offering orthokeratology (ortho-k) for ages 8 and up.

Ortho-K involves wearing a custom-designed contact lens only while you sleep. The lens safely reshapes the front surface of your eye and improves your vision overnight.

Enjoy clear vision WITHOUT the need for glasses, daytime contact lenses or LASIK surgery.

Most people, like Dr. Gellis (who is now glasses-free thanks to ortho-k), notice a dramatic vision improvement after the first night of wear.

Numerous research studies demonstrate a significant slowing down of myopia (nearsightedness) progression in children wearing ortho-k lenses, compared to those who wear glasses or soft contacts.

Call 440-442-4930 to set up a consultation with Dr. Gellis. We look forward to discussing the vision treatment that can CHANGE YOUR LIFE!!!
