Vision Correction in Medina
Vision is one of your most precious senses and achieving the best possible vision is important for many individuals who struggle with vision deficits. While many people see glasses and contact lenses as the only means of vision correction, there are a wide variety of vision therapies available that can help improve visual performance and enrich a patient's overall quality of life. A candidate for alternative vision correction can be anyone from a patient who is having trouble seeing up close or far away to a child struggling in school and even a student who wants to simply increase their level of academic performance. At Complete Eye Care of Medina, our optometrists work with each individual to determine what the greatest visual needs are, and will create a customized treatment plan, including visual therapies that are designed to achieve optimal results.
Corneal Reshaping Therapy
Corneal reshaping therapy is a cornerstone of our optometry practice here in Medina. At our clinic our doctors branded it 'Sleep and See', because that is literally what you do! It is a type of therapy designed to reshape the cornea to obtain improved visual acuity through the use of specialized, oxygen-permeable contact lens molds, not unlike rigid contact lenses, that are worn at night while you sleep. When optimal results are achieved in about 10-14 days or less, patients do not need to wear glasses or contacts for visual correction throughout the day. Unlike more permanent types of corneal reshaping, including laser surgery, corneal reshaping therapy is reversible and the patient's baseline vision will return in about 3 days when the specialized lens molds are discontinued. Perhaps the biggest benefit to corneal reshaping is the reduction in progression of myopia or nearsightedness. This greatly reduces the risk for eye diseases like glaucoma, macular degeneration and retinal holes or detachments later in life.
