OVITZ®

We are proud to be the first is North Carolina to offer this revolutionary technology.

Do you feel your glasses lack the clarity you’re looking for? Or struggle with glare driving at night or in the rain? You likely are suffering from uncorrected Higher Order Aberrations (HOAs). Aberrations simply mean distortion. Some are more complex than others.

Refractive errors such as nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism are common aberrations that can be corrected by glasses and conventional contact lenses. HOAs are complex distortions that can increase with age or are associated with cornea diseases such as Keratoconus and post-LASIK complications.

OVITZ is the first automated Higher-Order Aberration Correcting system that measures the entire optical pathway to determine what imperfections are visually significant. This non-invasive scan map quantifies and simulates your vision to help you understand how your vision is being affected by aberrations. Most importantly it defines the options that are available to correct them.

HOAs most commonly cause visual distortions in low light settings, particularly night driving or driving in the rain causing glare halos and starbursts along with blurred vision.
