The Perfect Graduation Present – Orthokeratology | Rye, NY

No matter what grade level, graduation can carry the same level of importance to an elementary student who is entering junior high as a college student who is entering the workforce. Whenever a child graduates from one school to the next, a parent often feels the need to help foster their child's growth & success with a gift. While some parents opt to give their high school graduate a new car or a middle school graduate the latest flying drone, nothing compares to the gift of amazing sight every day without the need for glasses or contacts - orthokeratology.

A revolutionary program that is FDA approved and safe for children as young as 8 is orthokeratology or corneal refractive therapy. Through customized molds or lenses that are worn overnight, the cornea is gently reshaped into the ideal aspheric shape. This grants a child 20/20 vision throughout the day without the need for glasses or contacts!

This process not only removes the need for eyewear entirely, but research has shown that reshaping the cornea reduces the progression of nearsightedness.
