Meet Dr. Garber


After graduating from The Ohio State University College of Optometry and serving two years in the U.S. Army, Dr. Garber opened his specialty practice limited to Contact Lenses. From that point on, he has been an independent solo practioner, specializing in Orthokeratology and all aspects of myopia control.

In addition, Dr. Garber has been the “unofficial” Orthokeratology International Ambassador, making Ortho-k presentations literally all around the world! In fact, he has introduced basic and accelerated Ortho-k, and myopia control techniques to professional audiences in 28 different countries. Called by many of his colleagues, “The Ortho-K Guru,” Doctor Garber is one of five original pioneer Charter Boarded Orthokeratology Fellows of the International Orthokeratology Section of the National Eye Research Foundation, and is considered one of the most experienced practicing Ortho-K practitioners in the world.

Dr. Garber is an intrepid traveler, a founding member of the Jacques Cousteau Society, a member of the World Wild Life Foundation, Save the Reef, The Nature Conservancy, and a certified SCUBA diver and wildlife photographer, as well as a prolific national and international lecturer, a published author, and a clinical investigator.

From Dr. Garber –

Please call for info, and a mutually convenient appointment to see me if you want the MOST CARING, experienced Ortho-K doc — who has fit more Ortho-K patients than ANYONE else, ANYWHERE, at a fair professional fee. On the other hand, if cheap and fast, not skilled or caring is your main interest you do not deserve me.
Best for all concerned if you go elsewhere!… Sorry.

– Dr. G


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
