Vision issues are quite common and they can affect people at different stages in their lives, too. Annual eye exams are recommended for people of all ages for this reason, plus it is important to monitor the development of any present vision concerns you already have to make sure that your prescription lenses are always up to date. But for those who are tired of relying on glasses, there are alternatives, such as corneal reshaping. Our optometrist near Silver Spring

For vision concerns, vision screenings can help give Dr. Ely and Dr. Cohen more insight as to what your impairment is like and what can be done to improve your eyesight in spite of it. For many people, prescription lenses in the form of glasses or contacts is easiest, but there are other options too. Corneal reshaping can help reduce the need for prescription lenses during the day significantly. This can be achieved both surgically and non-surgically. Orthokeratology is the non-surgical, non-invasive option that is also a fraction of the price of LASIK surgery. Unlike LASIK, orthokeratology is not irreversible, and instead of surgery involves wearing special lenses at night that reshape the cornea to produce better vision during the day after they are taken out.
