Orthokeratology in Takoma Park
The vision correction practice of Maple Lawn Eye Care Center will give you the best possible care to keep your eyes healthy and strong. Our optometrist believes that clear, comfortable vision is your right and your priority. Our team is committed to providing expert medical care using the latest technology and advanced training in a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. That is why many of our patients that are partially-to-legally blind who cannot be helped with standard glasses or medical treatment have come to us for low vision treatment and orthokeratology in Takoma Park
When standard eyeglasses, contact lenses, medicine or surgery cannot provide sharp sight and the impairment interferes with a person's ability to perform everyday activities, an individual is said to have low vision. Thanks to the developments in the field of vision rehabilitation, we can maximize the use of the remaining vision, improving the quality of life. Each type of vision problem requires a unique therapeutic approach. Treatment plans may include prescription of glasses, custom telescopic or microscopic glasses, therapeutic filters, full-spectrum lighting and/or video magnification. Our goal is to maximize visual function for activities of daily living. One option in particular for those with low vision that we are most excited about is orthokeratology in Takoma Park
. Orthokeratology, also known as Ortho-K, is a treatment for myopia which utilizes specialized rigid gas permeable contact lenses. These ultra gas permeable lenses gently reshape the front of your eye as you sleep. In the morning the lenses are removed and clear vision is restored throughout the day. Most often vision improvements come after the first night of wear and can remain stable all day just after two weeks of night wear. Correct your vision while you sleep with safe therapeutic lenses and enjoy great vision all day without the hassle of glasses and daytime contacts.
Success rates for Ortho-k tend to be higher for mild prescriptions. Call our office to find out if your prescription is within the range that can be successfully treated with Ortho-k. If you desire clear, comfortable vision and/or want to decrease your dependence on your prescription frames or contact lenses, then orthokeratology in Takoma Park
may be the solution you’ve been looking for. If you would like to make an appointment or have any questions, please call our office or consult our website.
