Bethesda, MD, December 14, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Dr. Michael J. Weitz, Optometrist, Orthokeratologist, would like to announce that The Orthokeratology Center has moved its office to the home of Bethesda Vision Care, 4300 East-West Highway, Bethesda, Maryland 20814.
The Orthokeratology Center specializes in designing contacts that can be worn overnight that allow the patient to see clearly in the morning without the additional need for glasses or contact lenswear. This procedure is ideal for actors, swimmers, dancers and other athletes whose performance might be enhanced by not having to worry about glasses or contacts. It's also a non-invasive alternative for patients who might be fearful of LASIK. The specially-designed lens actually molds the cornea while the patient is sleeping. The effect is temporary and reversible-- unlike LASIK. It has also been shown to slow the progression of myopia in children.
New and former patients may call 301-942-4650 or 301-717-7330 to schedule an appointment. Free parking is available in both the front and on the side of the office building.
Dr. Michael Weitz' Orthokeratology practice specializes in corneal molding to enhance your vision without the need for surgery (lasik, PRK, or refractive surgery). Ortho-K may slow the progression of nearsightedness by 55%.
