Ortho-K: Correcting Vision While You Sleep!

Ortho-K in OhioCorrect Your Vision While You Sleep

Dr. , at our Richmond Heights Lenscrafters location, 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. Our patients who have tried Ortho-K have seen great success and are very happy with Ortho-K.

"I was pleasantly surprised that it worked and I didn't need any glasses or daytime contacts after 4 days. I run about 3-4 times a week and it is way easier since I started Ortho-K. I don't have to worry about the maintenance of my soft contacts, I have less dryness and the best part is that it makes wearing sunglasses much easier!!" - J.A. (Ortho-K patient)

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