About Dr. Berke

Dr. Bill Berke is an optometric physician and orthokeratologist in private practice in Santa Ana, CA, since 1978.  He is also a Fellow of the International Academy of Orthokeratology and Myopia Control (FIAOMC).

Dr. Berke is the owner of the Super Vision Center.  The center offers full scope optometric examination and treatment services, huge eyewear showroom and an onsite lens grinding laboratory to control quality and speed of operation.

Dr. Berke specializes in Orthokeratology.  OrthoK is a revolutionary safe and effective, FDA approved procedure since 2002 that is a safe alternative to laser eye surgeries.

Dr. Berke leads in the field of OrthoK with his newly patented lens designs and methods of fitting.  His lens design is strictly custom made and a One-Lens-One-Eye® design.  Dr. Berke is a fellow of the Academy and has lectured at the international forum more than ten years on the subject of OK and has published several papers and studies.  The results of his university study at the Southern California College of Optometry in Fullerton, CA, have shed new light on the physiology of what really happens to the cornea from ortho-k.  Doctor Berke is one of the world’s few designers of orthoK corneal molds and holds several US patents on orthokeratological lens designs and methods of fitting therefor.
