       Specialty Eye Care
at Rockford Family Eyecare
ROCKFORD FAMILY EYECARE’S husband and wife team, Theodore and Carrie Sees, are proud to continue to provide high quality, full- scope as well as specialty eye care to Rockford and the surrounding communities. Although the practice provides general eyecare exams, the Sees are especially interested in Orthoker- atology using contact lenses/corneal molds
at night to temporarily reshape the cornea, like braces for the eyes. The goal is to correct nearsightedness, slow down its progression in kids and serve as an alternative to wearing eyeglasses or contact lenses during the day. Although Orthokeratology is FDA approved for nearsighted prescriptions only, the retainers can be customized for other types of prescrip-
tions including farsightedness, astigmatism and even bifocals.
In addition, Rockford Family Eyecare’s doc- tor, Kelly Daugherty-Zielaskowski, specializes in pediatric eye care. This includes performing detailed infant exams and assessing children for binocular vision disorders, which may be hindering their school and sports performance.
Rockford Family Eyecare also specializes in helping with the under-treated problem of dry eyes. Without relying solely on artificial tears, their Dry Eye Center uses diagnostic instru- ments to detect what type of disease is afflict- ing patients. Therapies may include nutrition advice, medication, scleral contact lenses, eye- lid gland cleansing and lifestyle counseling. Treatment may include treating your eyelids with their MiBo Thermoflo system. Other treat- ments may include BlephEx — an instrument that helps clean persistent bacteria off the eyelids
Rockford Family Eyecare doctors also serve the Belding community at their second loca- tion, Belding Family Eyecare.
