Empress Eye Clinic offers Ortho-K (Orthokeratology) as an effective technique for myopia control in children. It reduces myopia (nearsightedness) progression and the risk of other myopic-related eye diseases later in their lives.
We also offer Orthokeratology (Ortho-K) as a non-invasive, reversible and safer alternative for refractive surgery procedures such as LASIK, PRK, SMILE, and CONTOURA.
Orthokeratology, also referred to as Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT) or Overnight Vision Correction, is a unique revolutionary technology that utilizes custom-fitted, oxygen-permeable rigid contact lenses to improve vision through the reshaping of the cornea while you sleep. Remove your lenses in the morning and enjoy clear vision without wearing glasses or contact lenses during the day.
Ortho-k lenses can offer you vision correction while experiencing freedom from contacts and eyeglasses during the day. Some additional benefits of ortho-k lenses include:
- You can work in environments and partake in activities during the day that makes wearing contacts and eyeglasses difficult.
- They have been shown to reduce myopic progression in children and young adults.
- Improves self-esteem in children.
- They offer a safer and non- invasive alternative to LASIK and other refractive surgery procedures.

Wow, what a great experience! I was able to book a same-day appointment after calling multiple optometrists in the area with an eye emergency. Both Dr.Heshmati and Dr.Habib took their time with me – it didn’t feel rushed at all, and they always ensured I was comfortable and were diligent in getting to the solution of my issue! Not only were the doctors exceptional, but the front desk staff went above and beyond to ensure I had my following appointments booked and that I had all my questions answered! All in all, fantastic experience. I highly recommend this location and wish other practices held to their standard.
Everyone I interacted with was very friendly, respectful, and attentive. From the person who did the eye tests to the person who helped with the glasses.
The doctor was also great. He didn’t rush and took his time explaining his observations and the next steps. He truly cares. As a healthcare professional myself, I know when I see exemplary patient care.
Thank you for the awesome service
I’ve never had an eye appointment before so I didn’t know what to expect. The staff was absolutely wonderful! Dr Heshmati was so kind and thorough and knowledgeable…he explained everything he was going to do so well and helped me with my prescription.
I had help from a wonderful lady whose name I didn’t catch…she helped me pick out the perfect frames for my new glasses and was so patient and helpful.
The staff was so friendly and approachable. I had a great experience and I highly recommend this clinic to anyone needing their eyes checked!
I wish I knew this eye clinic earlier! The eye exam was very thorough and Dr. Habib explained in detail about our testing results. The clinic has advanced machine to detect eye problems that are not normally checked. The front desk assistant was very professional as well and helped us finding eye glasses. Clinic is super clean!
