Drs. Klasman, Solomon and Bregel are experienced in all phases of general eye care including complex contact lens fittings and diagnosis and treatment of eye disease. The doctors manage cataract and refractive surgery cases and are on of the few practices in Maryland to offer Orthokeratology, a non-surgical technique which utilizes a retainer contact lens during sleep, allowing complete freedom from glasses and contacts during the day.
Myopia is a vision condition where people are able to see close objects clearly, but distant objects are blurred. If the myopia is severe, it will impair near vision as well. In addition to weakening vision, it also changes the physical structure of the eye. These changes increase the risk of future eye diseases.
Orthokeratology, also known as Ortho K, is a process utilizing specially designed contact lenses, called retainers, to gently reshape the top of the cornea to reduce myopia (nearsightedness.)
Scleral contact lenses are large gas permeable contact lenses that rest on the white part of the eye (sclera). These contact lenses are made with highly breathable material, so plenty of oxygen reaches the eye through the contact lens.
Understanding dry eye will help you determine the best treatment option. Dry eye occurs when a person doesn't have enough quality tears to lubricate and nourish the eye. Tears reduce eye infections, wash away foreign matter, and keep the eye’s surface smooth and clear. People with dry eyes either do not produce enough tears or their tears are poor quality. It’s a common and often chronic problem, especially in older adults.
