Doctors & Medical Providers
Orthokeratology/GVSS (gentle vision shaping system) is a way to see clearly without glasses or surgery and in children can slow down the progression of the nearsightedness. Orthok/GVSS uses a retainer to reshape the front surface of the eye to eliminate or reduce nearsightedness or astigmatism during waking hours. GVSS vision retainers are similar to contact lenses and are usually worn during sleep. They are removed when you wake up and provide clear vision without using glasses or contact lenses. GVSS uses FDA approved materials and is a safe and effective option for both children and adults.

LITTLE OPTICS, INC.
192-07 Union Turnpike, Fresh Meadows
53-15 Roosevelt Ave.
Woodside, NY 11377
We provide eyeglasses and professional eye care for children, including infants, and young adults. Fitting children with glasses is a very different task than fitting an adult with glasses. Most children have serious medical issues like strabismus (crossed eyes) or amblyopia (lazy eyes). When we fit a child with glasses we start a relationship with them, as we will consistently see them during the year for adjustments as well as prescription changes. We alleviate any self-esteem issues associated with the stigma of wearing glasses. When your child leaves Little Optics, rest assured that they will feel confident.
