Ortho-K (also called orthokeratology and corneal refractive therapy) is a simple but effective solution that allows people to see clearly without wearing glasses or contact lenses during the day.
See & Be Seen Eyecare is proud to offer Ortho-K to our patients. Schedule an appointment today and ask us if you could benefit from Ortho-K.
Most refractive errors are caused by a problem with the length or curvature of the eye. In nearsightedness either the eyeball is too long or the cornea is too steep. In farsightedness the eyeball is too short or the cornea is too flat. Ortho-K uses rigid, gas permeable lenses to remedy these issues.
Every night at bedtime, the patient puts in their Ortho-K lenses. As they sleep, the rigid lenses gently reshape the cornea, correcting their refractive error. By the time the patient wakes up, their eyes are the right shape to facilitate clear vision, which means they can take the contacts out and go about their day without any other sort of corrective lenses.
For Ortho-K to work longterm, you have to wear the contact lenses every night; otherwise, your eyes will return to their original shape. If you ever decide you want to pursue laser eye surgery or that you just like the way you look in glasses, you can easily reverse Ortho-K treatment by just not wearing your contact lenses while you sleep anymore.
Even though childhood myopia tends to get worse as kids get older, we can mitigate that progression with Ortho-K. Myopia progression is associated with recurring eye stress. Ortho-K helps reduce the strain on your child’s eyes by giving them clear vision at all distances.

All the rave reviews about this place are spot on. Absolutely top notch customer service, friendly staff, and welcoming atmosphere. I never thought I’d ever enjoy going to the Optometrist this much.
All the staff were excellent at ensuring everything was explained well and with utmost professionalism and courtesy. Every detail of my entire visit was smooth and efficient.
Tried out See & Be Seen after seeing some great reviews online, and they most definitely lived up to the hype! Easy to get to location in Liberty Village, very cool shop interior, great range of eyewear, and an awesome bunch of staff to boot! Their customer service was top notch from the minute I booked my appointment, right up until walking out the door with some fresh new glasses.
This was my first in-depth eye exam, and Dr. Patel and his team make the process very easy and interesting to help you understand all about the health of your eyes. If you’re considering getting a check-up or in need of new glasses, 100% pick See & Be Seen.
I can’t even begin to express my love and admiration for the team at See & Be Seen Eyecare. Incredible, above and beyond service. Exceptionally friendly and they IMMEDIATELY made me feel like family. Dr. Patel blew me with his friendly and helpful personality and the staff are just so bubbly and accommodating. I feel seriously blessed to have found this team. Thank you!!
The best Optometrist I have ever seen, the entire staff is extremely warm and welcoming. They use high quality lenses, and cary the best fashions for frames. The atmosphere is also warm and welcoming unlike other old fashioned stark white clinics. 100% would recommend and visit again! Plus cool eyeball pictures!

I came across the city for this office due to the amazing reviews on Yelp and I could not be more thankful for social media because I would have never found this gem without it!!! Thanks Dr. Patel and staff!!!! My eyes will never be the same!!
I went to See & Be Seen by chance the first time around. I was thrilled with the level of customer service I received and the welcoming staff. From the wonderful receptionist who immediately made me feel like a friend to Dr. Patel who is very caring to the assistance i received in finding the best glasses possible. I couldn’t imagine having a better experience.
