Overview

About Us

Our office offers vision therapy and orthokeratology services for children and adults. We use a holistic yet practical approach to helping our patients attain the best vision possible and improved quality of life through enhanced visual skills.

Our main practice location is in the heart of Silicon Valley in West San Jose, adjacent to Cupertino and allows for easy access from freeways 85 and 280. Depending on the type of vision problem, we are able to do vision therapy with patients as young as 3 and have worked with patients up to their 80s. Dr. Shao also sees patients at other locations in the Bay Area, including Fremont and Mountain View.
