Our Sunglasses Contest Winner!
Congratulations Phyllis, from Dr. Steve Jacobs and his team!
We're gearing up for our Myopia Control Open House, Wed., Sept. 14th from 5-7 . Myopia is reaching epidemic proportions and poses a serious risk to eye health as one ages. Now there are techniques to slow it down during kids' growth years. One of these, Ortho-K, allows glasses and contact lens free vision through the day as well as reducing myopic progression. Sleep with lenses/molds overnight, take them off in the morning and see clearly. It's great for people of all ages who want hassle free daytime vision. Come and hear about it at the Open House (or any other time if you ask). Call to reserve a spot and a personalized information packet.
We specialize in Contact Lenses, from the latest in One Day technology to complex fits involving scleral and hybrid lenses for eye disease or post surgical care, and now featuring Orthokeratolgy (OK for short, ok?). Orthokeratology is a procedure which can provide clear and comfortable, correction-free daytime vision through the use of special rigid lenses while sleeping. It may even slow down the increase in nearsightedness in children.
Out Optical features top lens and eyeglass designer frame brands including Crizal Anti-Reflection and Transitions lenses; Silhouette, Kate Spade, Guess, and Flexon eyewear; and the whole family of Alcon-Ciba contact lenses, among other hi-tech and top quality lines.

Dr. Steve Jacobs Answers Your Eyecare Questions
What exactly is Orthokeratology?
Orthokeratology is a process involving the wearing of specifically designed rigid lenses while sleeping to mold and temporarily change the shape of the front of the eye.
It is an FDA approved procedure which allows appropriate individuals to go through the day seeing clearly without the need to wear glasses or contact lenses.
This can be effective for kids as well as adults and is a wonderful option for those with active lifestyles.
What really neat, though, is that research shows it can slow nearsightedness by half during the childhood years when it is most likely to develop and progress. This, in turn, may decrease the likelihood of a number of eye diseases later in life.
