Are you someone that has either nearsightedness or astigmatism, or both? Do you depend on either contact lenses or prescription eyeglasses all day long in order to see clearly? Are you looking for a way to avoid invasive eye surgery but still correct your vision? If so, our El Paso eye care specialists at El Paso EyeCare have a treatment option that you should seriously consider. It is called Orthokeratology, or ortho-k for short. Orthokeratology is an amazing system that allows many patients to correct their vision at night, essentially charging up their eyes to see clearly without glasses or contact lenses during the next day. Instead, gas permeable, or hard, contact lenses are inserted and worn throughout the night, while you are asleep. These special contact lenses work by reshaping your cornea during the nighttime hours, correcting your vision and allowing you to experience 20/20 vision the following day.

Patients with ortho-k lenses provided by our El Paso eye care experts usually see a difference in their vision after their very first night of wearing them. We have seen vision remain stable for patients for a whole day’s time after only two weeks of using the gas permeable lenses each night. Orthokeratology is a highly effective, safe, and therapeutic means to achieving vast improvements in your vision. You will no longer feel bound to your prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses each morning, and you will not need to undergo any sort of risky, invasive surgery. The experts at El Paso EyeCare would love to discuss how this can work for you individually based on your medical history and vision needs.

When we think of eye exams, we generally regard them as a means to acquiring a proper prescription for a pair of eyeglasses or contact lenses. While comprehensive eye exams certainly do serve this purpose, that is not the only role they play in your health. During a thorough comprehensive eye exam, your eye doctor performs a number of tests to get an overall sense of the health of your eyes, looking for conditions such as glaucoma which can develop without any noticeable symptoms. In order to make sure that your vision remains strong and your eyes stay healthy, it is important to regularly schedule eye exams with your El Paso eye doctor at El Paso EyeCare, where we will monitor the condition of your eyes to help you stay ahead of potential problems.

As we all know, a key component of a comprehensive eye exam is a refraction test, which involves looking through different lenses at an eye chart across the room in order to determine the best prescription for your vision needs. However, there are other necessary procedures performed during a comprehensive eye exam. Your eye doctor will also perform a slit lamp exam to get a close look at the structures of your eyes, checking them for signs of problems such as cataracts, macular degeneration, problems with the cornea, and other issues. Your eyes may also be dilated, in order to get a better overall look at their health. During your comprehensive eye exam, you may also have your intraocular pressure checked in order to make sure that you are not at a risk of developing glaucoma. At El Paso EyeCare, our El Paso eye doctor performs all these tests so that your eye exam can provide both you and your doctor with a thorough and full picture of your overall optic well-being.

At El Paso EyeCare, Dr. D.T. Patel and Dr. Eley are both completely committed to providing you with proper eye care. Thanks to regular comprehensive eye exams, our El Paso eye doctor can not only provide you with the necessary prescription for your eyes, but also help you to guard against conditions which, if left untreated, could threaten your eyesight.
