I had a great experience at FUQUAY eye care. All staff members were very friendly. The building is very clean and has updated technology. Tonya the tech was very welcoming, kind, and has a great personality for interacting with her patients! Dr. Patrick O’Dowd was wonderful. He took the time to explain, answer questions, and even made me laugh multiple times.

OrthoK Teens BBall Slideshow 1024x384

The goal for ortho-k is to correct your vision to 20/20 without eyeglasses or contact lenses during the day. In FDA trials of both CRT and VST lenses, more than 65% of patients were able to achieve 20/20 visual acuity after wearing the reshaping lenses overnight. More than 90% were able to see 20/40 or better (the legal vision requirement for driving without glasses in most states).

For kids, the Gentle Vision Shaping System (GVSS) - which combines Corneal Refractive Therapy and Orthokeratology - involves wearing corrective contact lenses only at night.

In addition to its other benefits, GVSS can potentially reduce the progression of myopia (nearsightedness) in children and teenagers and may provide them the best possible vision.

Once you reach the age of 40 it’s critical to get your eyes checked – why? Only a comprehensive eye exam can reveal whether or not you have glaucoma or AMD. Age-related macular degeneration (AMD), is an age related eye disease that runs in families, and is a leading cause of blindness in our aging population. Although there is no cure for this ocular disease, there are treatments, and preventative measures that can be taken, if detected early, so routine eye exams are essential.
