Any paddlers or skiers out there having trouble with contact lenses, glasses or goggles? There is a newer and better option than LASIK available right now. Orthokeratology, also known as Ortho-K is a nonsurgical way to correct your nearsightedness and astigmatism while sleeping. This is no joke. This procedure is FDA approved for people of all ages and safer and less expensive than LASIK.
What happens is your eye doctor fits you for retainer lenses that you wear only while you sleep. You put them on just before bed and remove them as soon as you wake up. In just a few days you have perfect vision all day long. It costs about 1/3 the price of LASIK and works just as well. To find out more about it in the Denver area, go to www.geteyeshapers.com
. I know a bunch of active people who have done this and love it. A few months ago I saw a news story on it in Denver and the same guy was just featured in the Rocky Mountain News last week. Anyone having eye problems on the water should check this out.
