You’ve probably heard that laser surgery may reduce your need for glasses. But did you know there’s an alternative that can free you from glasses… without surgery? It’s called Orthokeratology—also known as Corneal Refractive Therapy—and it uses special contact lenses that gently work to reshape the eye in the same way an orthodontist uses braces to re-align teeth. Wear the lenses while you sleep and wake up to clear, natural vision, all day long, without glasses or contacts! Orthokeratology is FDA approved as a safe, convenient and natural way to enjoy freedom from glasses, without the risk of surgery. Dr. Bauman was among the earliest eyecare professionals to utilize Orthokeratology, and has many years of experience in the successful use of this innovative procedure.
