Why Should I Choose Ortho-K?

Orthokeratology is the non-surgical improvement of eyesight through the therapeutic use of contact lenses. It SAFELY and predictably improves your vision without cutting your eyes with a laser or LASIK surgery.
In comparing Orthokeratology to laser or LASIK surgery,  Orthokeratology is a non-surgical, reversible, safe and time-tested, non-invasive procedure, utilizing oxygen-permeable rigid contact lenses to gently reshape the cornea (similar to orthodonture). Laser/LASIK is a surgical, invasive, not time-tested for safety procedure that is not reversible once it is done!
In addition, and this is very important, Orthokeratology is F.D.A. approved, and is a DRUG-FREE vision improvement procedure that is so safe and effective we routinely accept children over six years of age for the procedure. On the other hand, laser/LASIK surgery patients MUST USE potentially dangerous STEROIDS, and other drugs for MANY MONTHS after surgery. (Just two of the possible life-altering negative side effects of these drugs are GLAUCOMA and CATARACTS!!!) And of course, neither laser nor LASIK surgery is approved for anyone younger than 18 years of age.
Anyone who compares the risks and benefits of both procedures can only make one intelligent decision — Ortho-K is truly the “Intelligent Alternative” (and “Best Kept Secret”)!

Can I be helped?

To determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure, a two-hour extended examination using high-tech equipment must be scheduled. This examination costs $295 and must be prepaid to reserve the time.

At the completion of this examination, your Ortho-K fee will be presented by the doctor and discussed with you personally. The fee is determined by the amount of time Dr. Garber must spend with you, and the strength of your prescription. Stronger prescriptions and astigmatic patients often have higher fees.

If it is determined that you would be a good candidate, the fees presented will cover all examinations and Ortho-K lenses prescribed for a six-month period. After the first comprehensive examination, follow-ups are scheduled approximately at one week, one month, three months, and every six months thereafter. Any additional follow-ups the doctor feels are necessary during this six-month period are covered at no additional cost. After the six-month period expires, all six-month follow-ups are $210.

The doctor insists on speaking to each patient (or parent) individually by phone prior to examining them to evaluate any prior or existing health conditions that my cause problems. If all seems satisfactory, the doctor will suggest a mutually convenient appointment be made.

How quickly can my vision improve?

Revolutionary technology dramatically shortens improvement time to DAYS in most cases! Some still require several weeks. Not only does ORTHO-K stop the nearsightedness from progressing, but in addition, the your vision continues to improve continually every day, with MANY patients achieving 20/20 in several days.

Can you help Color Blindness?

In most cases, YES!
Our office uses advanced computers (photo below) to map out the EXACT curvature of the cornea so we can custom fit your contact lenses.

How can Ortho-K help my child?

Nearsightedness(Myopia) worsens with time. Because about 85% of all learning is done with the eyes, it is critical to treat young school children’s nearsightedness. Most eye doctors recommend an eye examination before children begin school so Myopia and other refractive errors can be detected and corrected. It is estimated that 4% of all eight-year olds in the Untied States suffer from nearsightedness. By the time these eight-year olds reach college, 60% OF THEM WILL BE SUFFERING FROM MYOPIA!

Too often, conventional eyeglasses are used for treatment of Myopia in children. Sometimes this course is taken because of tradition, other times because the parents are unwilling to commit to the expense or the time needed to help children with contact lenses. It is a particularly unfortunate choice because wearing of prescription glasses by nearsighted children can often cause even poorer vision.

Preventative and corrective measures are extremely critical in children’s vision because poor vision is directly linked to learning problems and poor academic performance. Recent data shows that 70% of all children in special learning disability classes have vision problems.

ORTHOKERATOLOGY IS THE ONLY KNOWN NON-SURGICAL PROCEDURE THAT CAN REVERSE THE PROGRESSION OF MYOPIA IN CHILDREN. The program can be started with children as young as six, but developing Myopia can be stopped at any age by the use of therapeutic contact lenses.

Although most patients in the ORTHO-K program are older than the age of 14, the procedure is perhaps EVEN MORE BENEFICIAL FOR CHILDREN AS YOUNG AS 6 YEARS OLD!!!

These YOUNGSTERS benefit from ORTHO-K in several ways that many older ORTHO-K patients, or Laser/LASIK patients do not!

(1) Their eyes never deteriorate insidiously from the “dangerous” increases in prescription, that is so common as they get older.

(2) Their RETAINER lenses, worn virtually only while sleeping, helps to keep their Myopia under control FOR A LIFETIME!

(3) Their nearsightedness (Myopia) is virtually ELIMINATED COMPLETELY!!!

(4) Laser/LASIK is NOT F.D.A. approved for anyone younger than 18 years of age!

(5) ORTHO-K is truly the “Best Kept Secret” in the eyecare field, and most assuredly the “Intelligent Alternative.”

I need good vision for work, can you help me?

For many people, imperfect vision means more than inconvenience in daily life. It can mean failing to qualify for a job that they really want or losing a job that has strict visual standards. Some people even make career changes because they feel the pressure of the job is the problem when the underlying cause is poor vision.

Such cases have occurred with policemen, firemen, pilots, architects, draftsman, athletes, educators, government workers, and many other occupations.

With proper diagnosis, people in these occupations have been able to improve their unaided vision with Orthokeratology. Some have been improved to a point where they could meet the visual requirements of a job they wanted but couldn’t have due to poor vision.


FOR YOUR EYES SAKE!!!
BEFORE you irreversibly vaporize your corneas by laser/LASIK, please contact Dr. Garber personally with ANY questions you might have! And be assured he will call you back if he is unable to speak with you immediately.


Patient TESTIMONIALS

Dr. Garber has greatly improved my eyesight. He is extremely kind to talk to. Because of Dr. Garber and Ortho-K, I don’t have to wear glasses anymore.

Zachary – Age 12

… With the Ortho-K lens I have perfect night vision, especially while driving. The procedure is risk-free. If you discontinue wearing the lens, your vision returns to its previous level. No complications. I highly recommend Dr. Garber. He is “old school” and kind, caring. Dr. Garber will take the time to thoroughly explain his procedure. In addition, he follows through to make sure it’s perfect.

John – Age 66

Dr. Garber is an outstanding, caring individual with an equally great staff. Because it’s not invasive, Orthokeratology is without a doubt a better way to see clearly and be free from glasses.

George – Age 54

… With age, I have found it harder to read thing close up, but my new lenses have made that a little easier too. I have managed to avoid reading glasses as well, something that most of my friends in their late 40’s and early fifties have had to get. Overall, the Ortho-K lenses have been great for me and because of them I have never had to wear glasses to date!

Jennifer – Age 52

Before using Dr. Garber’s Ortho-K lens, I remember that I struggled with reading things that were far away… Now, I can see easily with the help of Dr. Garber’s lenses. For the past 8 years, I’ve been able to see extremely clearly and I absolutely love it! I couldn’t imagine not using Dr. Garber’s Ortho-K lens!!

Kaitlin – Age 17

I have been a patient of Dr. G’s for over 35 years and the entire Ortho-K process is nothing short of miraculous. Wearing the retainer lenses at bedtime is like not wearing contacts at all. I am so grateful to Dr. G and Ortho-K for improving and maintaining my vision.
Thanks!
P.S. Mary & Felicia are wonderful too!!

Petra – Age 63

With methodical persistence, Dr. Garber developed and refined lens designs until I was content with both comfort and clarity. Throughout the process he addressed my questions and concerns with clear explanations and good humor.

Abhay – Age 44

I have been a patient of Dr. Garber’s since 1992. I choose Ortho-K since it was a safe alternative to LASIK surgery. Since being an Ortho-K patient my vision has been around 20/20. Dr. Garber is not only an excellent Optometrist but a very caring and compassionate man. In fact, over the years my wife and I only trust him to examine our two children. During our exams, Dr. Garber is extremely thorough and patient…

Robert – Age: 46
