Orthokeratology (CRT & VST)

Orthokeratology (ortho-k) is the fitting of specially designed gas permeable contact lenses that you wear overnight. While you are asleep, the lenses gently reshape the front surface of your eye (cornea) so you can see clearly the following day after you remove the lenses when you wake up. With the contact lenses you are able to reduce the dependency on glasses and/or soft contact lenses during the day all while slowing the progression of childhood myopia.

To all our patients:

We are closely monitoring events in our local community and continuously updating our policies and protocols because of new information.

Please know that our office is following all recommended guidance from public health authorities, including best practices for hygiene, infection control and medical professional team health. We feel confident in our ability to begin seeing patients and providing the expert care you have come to expect and deserve from Towne & Country Eyecare.

Our highest priority is to keep all our patients and staff as safe as possible.

Therefore, at the recommendation of CDC, we will be taking patients’ temperatures and asking these screening questions prior to allowing them to enter the reception area. Notably, all patients need to consider these questions prior to coming to the office:

Should you arrive at the office and meet these criteria, you will be asked to stay in your vehicle and to call or text our office .We will let you know when you can come to the door for your screening.

We are currently working with reduced staff and reduced hours. There are NO walk-ins, all patients are by appointment only. Our current phone hours are Monday-Friday 9am- 3pm (closed 12-1 for lunch). We are looking forward to seeing our patients again.

Thank You,
