Up to 25% of the US population has some severity of myopia, a refractive error that effects the eye’s ability to focus on images clearly. Myopia is most often found in children between ages 8 and 12 and develops rapidly through the teenage years. Gentle Vision Shaping System is a practical solution to myopia, it can slow myopia progression by 50%.

GVSS vs LASIK

While many have heard of laser eye surgery or LASIK, some may find the procedure too risky. Laser eye surgery for instance is irreversible; GVSS is both non-surgical and reversible.

LASIK has also been shown to increase dry eye syndrome; GVSS does not. Patients who also take various prescriptions can also be at risk of side-affects with laser eye surgery; GVSS is not affected by prescriptions. GVSS has also been shown to slow down the progression of myopia, or nearsightedness.

Lastly, if your cornea is too thin for Lasik then GVSS may be a great way to be free of glasses and contact during all waking hours.

Some more reasons to consider GVSS instead of LASIK

  • It stops or slows down the progression of myopia
  • Inconvenienced by daytime contacts or glasses
  • Children may be too young for LASIK
  • Soft contacts can be irritating

With the Gentle Vision Shaping System, a device is used to gently mold/reshape the cornea (the clear tissue on the front of the eye), similar to the way a laser reshapes the cornea. Unlike a laser, however, GVSS is done non-surgically while you are asleep.

Testimonials

  • "Dr Love and his staff are terrific. I have severe astigmatism in one eye, so bad that wearing glasses caused headaches and lasik was not the optimal route. Dr Love suggested I try a sclera lens in their office - BAM! - perfect vision in an eye I've never seen clearly through, ever. Glad we chose Lake Mary Eye Care."

  • "My wife and I were advised by a friend to visit Dr Love at Lake Mary Eye Care when we became dissatisfied with our previous doctor. I am 80 years old and was a pilot in the USAF where eye care is a requirement. None of our previous exams were as complete as the ones provided by Dr Love during our first visit. When the exams were complete Dr Love sat down and explained the results to each of us. He showed us the pictures of the inside of our eyes and explained in detail what was happening as we get older. In the case of my wife he stopped the exam when it was time to dilate her eyes and explained that she had a problem which required surgery. He said that had he put the drops in her eyes she may well have lost vision. He recommended the surgeon and when the procedure was complete he finished the exam. In all previous exams for both of us, the first thing done by a nurse or tech was to put in the drops. This could have been disastrous for my wife. The follow up visits have continued to be detailed to ensure our vision is as good as it can possibly be for our age. Dr Love and the people in his office are dedicated professionals ensuring that our vision is number one priority. We are very happy to have had Lake Mary Eye Care and Dr Love recommended to us and we could not be more satisfied."

  • "No More Dry/ Tired Eyes, No More Night Glare/Bright Light Sensitivity I never write reviews. I’m 52 years old and this is my second. That is how impressed I am by Dr. Love. First issue: Dry/Tired/Burning eyes. This has been an issue for years, I spent countless dollars on OTC ‘solutions’, I saw many ‘experts, all for naught. I never knew if I was tired or if just my eyes where tired. I just knew I felt tired all the time. With Dr. Love’s few, simple suggestions I don’t feel tired anymore! I love to read, this issue was preventing my favorite hobby, my quality of life. I am able to read/watch TV/stay up later at night again. This has also increased the quality of my work and family life. Feeling tired makes me cranky, and the later the day got the crankier I got. Second Issue: Night Glare/Bright Light Sensitivity. This was getting so bad I dreaded driving at night. I have a 13-year-old son; thus, I am a full-time taxi service, the blindness I felt from oncoming headlights scared me to the point I feared for his welfare. Last night, taking him to practice, as the days get shorter, I did not even have to flip up my rear-view mirror into ‘night traffic mode’. I went to see Dr. Love about needing new glasses. I had accepted the fact that there was no ‘cure’ for these issues, it was just a fact of life, getting older and I needed to learn to live with it. Who knew I would leave solving two huge quality of life issues (along with better vision). He is the only Dr. I have ever visited who took the time to ask questions beyond just my vision. My only regret is that I waiting so long to take a doctor’s (my own niece!) advise and see Dr. Love sooner."

  • "I am very particular about who I see for our eye checkups because glaucoma is prevalent in our family and because my youngest has neurological problems that affect her eyes. Dr. Love does a great job managing these problems! I'm grateful to have a doctor that we can trust."

  • "This is an office filled with caring, knowledgeable professionals. It is a seamless process from tests to sharing results. I have never been so well-informed on my personal eye health. Lake Mary Eye Care is not just a place to get a prescription and buy glasses. All personnel are clearly focused on your individual eye health needs. Now for the fun part! What an outstanding selection of eyewear! I didn't purchase new everyday glasses, but while I browsed for prescription sunglasses, my "old" glasses received a little special treatment making them look new again! This was a most pleasant experience. Thank you to all."
