Dr. David Zucker, a member of the American Academy of Orthokeratology and Myopia Control, manages kids with myopia (nearsightedness) in a new and improved way. He focuses on prevention and protection of your child's eyesight.

Myopia can be controlled and corrected with Ortho-k, which is a technology that gently reshapes the cornea, while you sleep.

In other words, Ortho-K is not only used to slow down the progression of your child's myopia and stretching of their eyes, it also gives your child the opportunity to have 20/20 vision during the day without wearing glasses or daytime contact lenses.Imagine growing up with clear vision all day long without glasses or daytime contacts.

Ortho-K can be life changing:

  • Give your child more confidence when playing sports and swimming
  • Make showering and bathing easier
  • No more wearing uncomfortable glasses
  • No more getting dry eyes from daytime contacts
