WHAT MAKES BROWARD EYE CARE UNIQUE
Our doctors’ experience has allowed thousands of keratoconic patients to achieve clear vision when less experienced lens fitters had failed. Broward Eye Care receives referrals for the treatment of keratoconic patients from throughout the United States and South America. Our practice brings our patients the latest advanced lenses available for ideal comfort & acuity.
Those who face unique eye conditions and even post eye surgery require a gentler, more encompassing solution. Scleral lenses are designed to vault over the cornea for maximum protection and clarity. Our optometrists are certified cornea and contact lens fittings and have fit thousands with advanced keratoconus, post corneal transplant, and more.
Nearsightedness or myopia has become an epidemic across the U.S., where children are requiring glasses at younger ages. We recommend parents consult with our optometrists about orthokeratology to prevent your child's vision from growing worse year after year. When you ensure that your child's vision remains healthy will lower their risk for eye diseases.
While you sleep, the GP lenses gently reshape the front surface of your eye to correct your vision, so you can see clearly without glasses or contact lenses when you're awake. CRT or corneal refractive therapy is an FDA approved vision correction that is not only a safe alternative to LASIK but a preferred option for athletes and young adults.
Q&A with Dr. Bascome, our Orthokeratologist
What is Ortho-K?
Many people with mild to moderate nearsightedness, with or without astigmatism may benefit from the use of ortho-k lenses. Since the effects of ortho-k lenses are reinforced only if worn every night, if wear is discontinued, your eyes return to their original shape.
The risk for ortho-k is, therefore, quite minimal and ortho-k patients can discontinue at any time without adverse effects. Use of Ortho-k also does not rule out LASIK in the future.
Although Ortho-k lenses are primarily prescribed to correct nearsightedness, they also may be used to correct astigmatism, farsightedness and, in some cases even presbyopia.
Who is a candidate for Ortho-K?
Ortho-k is very suitable for nearsighted people who are not appropriate candidates for vision correction surgery, such as children.
Individuals of all ages with healthy eyes can try ortho-k, namely because it can be discontinued at any point without permanent effects to the eyes.
People who require vision correction and engage regularly in sports or work in extremely dusty, dirty environments will also appreciate the convenience of ortho-k
