Corneal Reshaping and Laser Vision Correction

Virginia Eyecare Center in Burke provides treatment, consultation and referrals for these common vision correction surgeries and procedures.


Vision correction is a general term used to describe a variety of optometric techniques for correcting less-than-perfect vision. For your convenience, we have included a brief description of some of the most common vision correction procedures offered at Virginia Eyecare Center in Burke. For more specific information about lenses and frames or contacts, please visit their respective pages.

Corneal Refractive Therapy (Orthokeratology)

Orthokeratology, a service we offer at our office, is a procedure for correcting myopia (nearsightedness) and mild astigmatism by gently reshaping the cornea with special contact lenses, which the patient places in his or her eyes overnight.

When successful, patients will experience clear vision during the day without contact lenses or eyeglasses. However, the results are temporary, so the patient must continue to wear the lenses regularly at night (similar to a retainer) to maintain optimum results.

One of the most beneficial aspects of Orthokeratology is that it has been shown in clinical studies to slow the progression of myopia.

Laser Vision Correction

LASIK (Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis) and PRK ( Photorefractive Keratectomy) are surgical procedures that use a laser beam to reshape the cornea. Patients who are nearsighted, farsighted or astigmatic may benefit from this type of procedure.

We co-manage refractive surgery with TLC Laser Eye Center in Tysons Corner. We will perform your pre and post-operative care. TLC is the absolute best in laser eye surgery. Our own Dr. Shay and several staff members have had laser surgery at TLC.

While millions of patients have seen successful results from laser vision correction, the procedure is not right for everyone. Your optometrist will need to thoroughly examine your eyes to determine which type of vision correction best fits your needs.

Virginia Eyecare Center has the experience and equipment necessary to provide treatment, consultation and referrals for the vision correction procedures and surgeries detailed above at our office in Burke. Request an appointment with your eye care provider, and we will be in touch with you shortly.
