The retainers that help fix crooked teeth have a lesser-known cousin?Signature Eye Care's overnight vision correction retainers. They look and feel much like contact lenses, but patients only wear them while they're sleeping. Over time, the retainers reshape the cornea, slowing or stopping the progress of nearsightedness.
And that's just one of the ways the eye-care team, led by optometrist Dr. Jonathan Knutson, helps patients see more clearly. They outfit folks with prescriptions and chic glasses, with frames from Coach, Kate Spade, and David Yurman, among other designers.
Poor vision has met it's match with laser surgery at Omaha Eye and Laser Institute. Its advanced iLASIK system maps out every eye's unique optical flaws, which improves the precision and accuracy of the vision-correction procedure and allows for complete customization. Like ice skates from the future, the procedure is driven by lasers and is blade-free, which allows for a more customized procedure. The staff is also adept at treating cataracts and eye disease via surgery.
Eye Care Associates of Manhattan has cleared up the sight of local residents since 1958, continuing the proud tradition of a friendly neighborhood eye clinic under the stewardship of husband-and-wife Doctors Matthew Stanley and Darcy D. Stanley. Though Dr. Darcy is on temporary leave after the birth of the couple’s second child, both optometrists bring a wealth of professional training and experience to the table, with degrees from the University of Missouri–St. Louis College of Optometry (where the pair met) and special skills in pediatric vision care and eye-disease diagnosis.
The in-office lab speedily builds new lenses to each patient's prescription, and the stock of fitted contact lenses corrects astigmatism, keratoconus, and myopia in a single visit. The ocular experts thoroughly assess and treat a wide range of vision problems, with LASIK procedures that negate the need for glasses and monocles, pediatric and infant exams to capture vision problems early, and EyeMaginations education software to give patients the unique out-of-body experience of observing and studying human vision. After doctors zero in on an exact prescription, patients can peruse the tiny labels of more than 20 well-known designers, including Vera Wang, Ray-Ban, Kate Spade, and Giorgio Armani.
