Big News about Ortho-K!

We have been getting more requests than ever about Ortho-K, the overnight contact lenses that allows for clear, glasses-free vision. You might have seen Dr. Nate on the news! You can read about Dr. Nate’s daughter’s own experience with Orthok-K and also read more about the process here. Treehouse Eyes is an office in Washington DC that specializes in myopia control, and they did a story on Dr. Nate’s daughter.

VR Home Therapy is Live

We are one of the first eye doctors to offer Vivid Vision Virtual Reality Vision Therapytreatment for amblyopia and strabismus, but we are now able to offer this treatment as part of a home Vision Therapy program. This is a game-changer for patients both children and adults. If you are interested, call us at 813-792-0637.

Updated Website

You may have noticed that we’ve been hard at work on our website BrightEyesTampa.com, especially pages on Myopia Control, Ortho-k, Vivid Vision and others. Check it out!

Reviews

Finally, we want to say that we are very thankful for all the Yelp and Google reviews. Most people find us through online reviews or word-of-mouth, and as a small business, we appreciate it! If you haven’t left a review, it would mean a lot if you did.

Thanks and have a great spring! 🙂

TV News Segment on Orthokeratology and Myopia Control

The mission of Bright Eyes Family Vision Care and Bright Eyes Kids is to empower our patients by providing the best vision care possible. One of the most exciting ways that we are able to do this now is called orthokeratology. It is one of the methods used to keep children from getting more and more nearsighted. Like vision therapy, it is complicated, but very, very rewarding.

I am very happy that word of orthok and myopia control is spreading! You can see for yourself from this excellent recent news segment from 10News CBS WTSP did featuring me and a patient of Bright Eyes.

Here it is:

A HUGE THANKS to reporter Courtney Robinson She was great to work with and genuinely interested in children’s vision and the effect of screen time. She took the time to come to the office and ask many fantastic questions. You can read her whole story here.

 

I am also thrilled that my daughter, Nora, has started orthok. I will write a blog post about that next. 🙂

If you have any questions, please let us know. Use the button below or call us at (813) 792-0637. And as a reminder, orthok is not just for kids. We do have adult patients that use orthok to be free from glasses for sports or while reading their phones or other activities.

See Well!

New Water-Gradient Contact Lenses – Alcon’s Dailies Total 1 Available at Bright Eyes!

dailies total1 (640x419)

Bright Eyes is excited about the newest daily contact lens: Dailies Total 1! Manufactured by Ciba Vision, this new lens is the first to supply the perfect balance between hydration and comfort for daily contact lenses.

Sometimes people find a lens that’s comfortable, but they still experience occasional discomfort during the day. Then, they continue to hear about the newest lens that is the most comfortable and “breathable”one out there. The difference with Dailies Total 1 is the increase in the amount of water-permeability throughout the lens. Unlike the other Silicone Hydrogel lenses, Dailies Total 1 lenses still includes great breathe-ability for the lens, but adds more “wettability” for comfort: > 80% water-content.

At Bright Eyes, we love new technology and we are proud that among the first optometry practices in the nation to offer this premium contact lens. I am very excited to offer it to people who have issues with dryness and discomfort with their normal contact lenses. I personally have dry eyes and I can only tolerate most contact lenses for 3 to 4 hours. I always like to try products before offering them to patients and with Dailies Total 1 I am able to wear them all day. My staff have have also tried these lenses, and find this lens to be the top-class for comfort.

Here is a short video about how comfortable these lenses are:
