“We decided that we will try retainer lenses afterDominic’s vision got worse when he was 7 years old. During the annual eye exam I’velearned that my son needs stronger glasseswhich terrified me since he had very strong prescription already . Doctor Szewczyk suggestedthe use of corrective lenses that are FDA approved to slow down myopia progression. I desperately wanted to preventthe further deterioration of Dominick’s eyesight. When I’ve learned that he was supposed to wear those retainers overnight I was a little bit skeptical but decided that we will try it anyway. Even thou I couldn’t imagine anything that will fix my sons large vision loss in just few hours of everyday wears! I have to say with the highest joy that I was wrong!!! Those unbelievable retainers worked already after 3 nights of use. His vision got to 20/ 20 from 20/400 . Ortho K lenses are the best thing that could happen toDominic and his eyesight ☺! We are very happy with results”

I do not want to wear glasses anymore! I have perfect vision during the day after just one week! I would recommend it to everybody! Could not be happier
I am very happy! Yesterday I did school presentation about it because I think this is the coolest thing ever! Everybody was amazed and they could not believe I do not need glasses anymore during the day!
Learning how to put lenses on at night was not difficult at all. Everybody was very nice and helpful. My mom was great help too and she promised to help me at the beginning but now I do it on my own. I don’t need glasses in class anymore because my vision is perfect during the day.
I am normally very active so glasses always interfered with my activities. I play instruments and I love to paint … I am very happy with results because my vision is perfect now. Putting lenses in at night is easy. My vision is 20 /20 now without glasses.
This is so cool , nobody believes me that I do not need glasses anymore.
I am very happy because my vision is very good now . I put lenses myself without any help. I used to wear glasses before but I do not have to anymore.
My daughter Nina was 7 years old when she first required eyeglasses. We were very saddened as her vision continued to deteriorate. She was terrified to go to the eye doctor fearing that her glasses will continue to change in power. Indeed Nina’s prescription was increasing very fast. We had to do something to stop it . We took Dr Sylwia recommendation and tried corneal reshaping lenses. It required several trips to the eye doctor in the beginning, but we are very pleased with the outcome. Nina is very happy that she does not need to wear glasses anymore and what is more important her vision is not progressing!!!
Natalia’s Vision was progressing so fast that we had to do something to stop it. She is my daughter and I felt responsible for her vision and her eyes. Without thinking too long we decided for corneal reshaping lenses. Natalia was very certain she wants to proceed since glasses interfered with her dancing and sports.
The first few nights were stressful. She had trouble getting the lenses in and out of her eyes and her eyesight did not improve immediately so we had to wear glasses and soft contact lenses so she could see during the day. She had high myopia in first place so we knew it will take longer to correct it. Dr Szewczyk reassured us it was normal process. Now I know it was all worth the struggle. Her vision is perfect! It is amazing! She does not even want to hear about glasses J we fixed her eyes with retainer lenses now we are working on her teeth with braces .Research has demonstrated that the technology used in our corneal reshaping program has often slowed down and/or stopped children’s eyesight from worsening.
“My son Jacob started wearing the night time contract lenses in March. We love the effect. He is a very active kid, and now he can participate in sports without worrying about wearing, or breaking his glasses because he doesn’t have to wear them. I am happy because his vision problem is not progressing. There was a small learning curve, with witch the staff at Ideal Eye Care was very helpful. Everyone was really friendly, and very knowledgeable. Overall, we are very happy that Jacob can function during the day without wearing his glasses and I would definitely recommend it to other children.
I wore glasses since age 8 . I have to say that i hated my thick glasses . So when my friend told me about corneal reshaping therapy I got very excited . I talk to my parents who got very interested in that option. I worried that i might not be a good candidate due to my high astigmatism . We chose Dr. Sylwia because she was highly recommended by our friends. Whole experience in her office was great. Everybody was very friendly and Dr. Szewczyk was very knowledgeable. I was happy to learn that I am a good candidate. I am glasses free for 1 year now. Could not be happier since I am in gymnastics and glasses always interfered with my activities.
I love to be glasses free!!!!!! This is awesome!!!!!!I could see clearly very next day after we removed those lenses. I see perfect now when I am swimming . Thank you Dr. Sylwia.
Dominic started wearing glasses at age seven. Our son likes sports and is a very active child. Glasses have interfered in his sport activities and also several times have been damaged.Unfortunately, year after year his vision became worse. With advice of Dr. Szewczyk we have tried lenses Ortho-k. We were afraid that Dominic would not be able to put on and of these lenses by himself. But after only a few days Dominic was up to the task and easily was able to put them on before sleep and take them off in the morning. Dominik is nine years old and has been using lenses ortho-k for 4 months already.
We are very happy with the care of Dr. Szewczyk and most pleased is Dominic who can see 20/20 every day without wearing glasses. Now, he can enjoy his favorite sports with no worries.

My friend told me about those lenses that correct vision . I thought it was great idea. I talk to my mom and she took me to Dr Szewczyk . My eye doctor fitted me with those lenses, which were easy to put in and remove . My vision is very good now but we had to change lenses many times to get to this point . I can swim now and I am finally able to see!!!!!!
I was very concerned about my son’s vision because my husband has very poor eyesight . At age 9 Jakub’s vision got up ti -6.00 and we could not wait any longer. Dr Szewczyk told us that studies demonstrated that this new technology has often slowed down and/or stopped children’s eyesight from worsening. We could not wait any longer. I’m very happy I decided to proceed and would recommend other parents to consider this type of technology for their children if they wear eyeglasses. This is a miracle! I cant believe my son sees so well w/o glasses. Thank You Dr Sylwia for saving my child vision.
