Horizon Family Eye Care is proud to offer corneal refractive therapy in Charlottesville, VA.
Corneal refractive therapy is a form of orthokeratology that utilizes a unique rigid gas-permeable contact lens. It is designed to correct your myopia by reshaping your cornea while you sleep. This makes it so you don’t have to wear contact lenses during the day.
Corneal refractive therapy is not for everyone. If you are interested, you will need to schedule a consultation with our educated and friendly eye doctor, who will be able to determine if you are a good candidate. An ideal candidate can be any age as long as he or she has healthy eyes. If you are interested in reducing how often you need to use your contact lenses during daytime hours, this is perfect for you!
The results of corneal refractive therapy are practically immediate. You will notice improvements in the first few days. You will have optimum vision within ten to fourteen days.
Our entire staff is dedicated to helping you with your vision. We understand how important your vision is and how being comfortable and seeing clearly can make a huge difference in your day-to-day life. We are always happy to answer any questions that you have before or after the therapy.
