Overnight Corneal Reshaping (Orthokeratology, Ortho-K)
Imagine being able to see all day long without wearing eyeglasses or contact lenses. Imagine not having to wonder if your child is wearing his/her eyeglasses in school. OCR is a safe, non-surgical, and reversible procedure that makes these things possible.
By wearing custom made corneal retainers overnight while you sleep, you will have clear vision all day long without wearing eyeglasses or contact lenses. Anyone who is not a candidate for laser refractive surgery (LASIK), prefers a non-surgical alternative, or has had difficulty wearing contact lenses may be a good candidate for OCR. Children and teens do very well with OCR, and it may slow the progression of myopia (nearsightedness).
Dr. Nisewonger is a member of the Orthokeratology Academy of America (OAA), an organization that supports, promotes, and works to advance orthokeratology by providing quality education and scientific informtion to all of its members. He is the only OAA member in the Richmond-Petersburg area.
We offer free consultations to discuss OCR with you and determine whether or not you would be a good candidate for this exciting procedure.
