What is Invisalens?

Invisalens is kind of like braces for your eyes. It is similar to a contact lens, but you only wear it while you sleep. It is able to reshape the surface of your eye and after you wake up and remove it your vision improves.  It changes about 50% after 1 night.  Most patients get clear vision all day after about 2 to 3 weeks.  Everyone is a little different in how well it works.

Why are you passionate about this?

The main reason I am passionate about this is because the first patient I ever examined that had gone blind, was my dad. After he went blind in his right eye I dedicated my career to find a way to give people stronger eyes, not stronger glasses.

Who benefits from Invisalens? Why?

Invisalens helps people of all agesworld wide to enjoy the freedom that stronger eyesight provides! Imagine if your eye sight could be improved or your child could play all day without glasses getting in the way.

Active and studios kids love INVISALENS because it helps them enjoy after school activities like swimming, sports and dancing, and may even help improve their confidence and self esteem.

Supermoms love INVISALENS because it means less stress on busy mornings to spend more time with kids, and gives you peace of mind you are doing everything you can to give your child a better life.

Involved grandparents love Invisalens because it helps them keep up with their grandchildren and it may even help them see young again!

How long does it take to work?

Most people improve about 50% after the first night. It can take 10 to 20 days to get good vision all day. Some people can take several months to get the full effect. Your results may vary.

Does it hurt?

Patients say it does not hurt, however you can feel the lens on your eye when you first start wearing it. When you close your eyes most of the feeling goes away.

How long does it last?

It will last for 1 to 3 days. Most people have to wear the Invisalens every night to get the most consistent vision.

Who is a candidate?

Most people that wear mild to strong prescriptions can be a candidate. If you have a super strong prescription or crossed eyes, or have a large scar or had bleeding or damage inside your eyes you will probably not be a candidate. The best way to know if to have an evaluation so we can tell medically speaking if you would be a candidate.

Why should I be concerned about myopia?

Myopia can be the result of the eye growing longer. The longer the eye grows, the more stretching inside the eye. The retina can rip apart, the blood vessels can split and bleed, you are higher risk of glaucoma and overall can have a higher risk of going blind. We have the technology now to slow down how bad the eyes change. Do your kids a favor and give them the gift of Invisalens.

What if I have astigmatism?

We can treat astigmatism as well. If there is too much that can affect the final result.

What if I need reading glasses, or bifocals?

The Invisalens has a unique shape that creates a multi focal treatment to the eye surface. Many pateints no longer need reading glasses or bifocals. Some patients require a little of what we call monovision. That is where one is treated to it can see things a little better up close and the other eye is treated so it sees things a little better far away.

Is it safe?

The FDA has approved the procedure in June of 2002 for children and adults. There is a slight risk of getting an eye infection just like wearing any other type of contact lens has a slight risk of getting an infection. With the proper size and shape created by a doctor skilled in the art and science of reshaping your eye surface and providing diligent follow up the safety is high.

Why haven’t I heard about this?

The mainstream eye care system is geared towards selling eyeglasses, disposable contact lenses, and treating eye disease. The big conglomerates are not looking at finding anything that could possibly cure or lessen the risk of eye disease and damage. We are promoting this at the risk of shame and ridicule from the big corporations. After seeing your father go blind you realized it is worth the risk to fight for a way to give people stronger eyes and not stronger glasses.

How much does it cost?

How much is blurry vision costing you already?How many times do you have to push your glasses back up on your nose?How does it make you feel knowing that you may have passed on your bad eyes to your child?How many other kids look at your child differently now that they are wearing glasses?More and more people are becoming near-sighted (myopia) every day especially kids. Research now shows that myopia can be more dangerous to the health of your eyes than smoking is to the health of your heart. Blurry vision may already be costing you a great deal. The pricing varies by prescription and eye shape. The investment works out to around $100 per month for the first year, and around $50 per month for subsequent years per eye.

Can’t I just get lasik?

You could, but why don’t you consider a less invasive, reversible option first?There are several confirmed cases of patient’s actually committing suicide and blaming their failed lasik procedure. Unfortunately If you or your child are under 18 you are not eligible for lasik because of your age (under 18).
