Everyone was so lovely from beginning to end. Had problems with my insurance at first, girls were on it. The Dr was very kind, friendly and thorough. My son loves learning and enjoyed the pictures of our eyes. All of the staff were so very sweet and professional. We will def be using this eye clinic for all of our eye needs in the future.

Ask Dr. Shelton a Question...

What is Orthokeratolgy (Ortho-K)?

Did you ever wish you could wake up in the morning being able to see perfectly? By wearing Ortho-K lenses nightly, you can correct your vision if you are nearsighted to close to perfect vision. Your eye doctor will fit you with GP lenses that gently correct the shape of the front of your eye when you sleep. The correction remains for a day or two, so you must continue to use the contacts nightly if you want to maintain good vision during the day. Interested in trying Ortho-K lenses? Book a consultation today.
