Free yourself from contact lenses or glasses!
Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT) allows you to enjoy great vision without corrective lenses during the day - without surgery!
Recent clinical research combined with the latest corneal surface mapping technology, computerized manufacturing and space age oxygen-breathing materials have brought new science to corneal reshaping. CRT is a non-surgical process developed to reshape the cornea while you sleep. The result is the temporary correction of myopia (short-sightedness) with or without moderate astigmatism.
Similar in appearance to standard contact lenses, CRT lenses gently reshape the corneal surface during sleep to provide clear, natural vision when the lenses are removed upon waking. Then during the day, you can participate in activities without the annoyance of glasses or contacts. And eye irritation and dryness, sometimes associated with contact lens wear, is also eliminated!
CRT is FDA approved for the correction of a wide range of myopia. Most patients have rapid improvement in the first few days of treatment and achieve their near-to-optimum vision in 10 to 14 days. Click here for more information on Paragon CRT's website.
To find out whether you're a candidate for CRT, contact our office to schedule an appointment.
A scleral lens, also known as a scleral contact lens and ocular surface prostheses is a large contact lens that rests on the sclera and creates a tear-filled vault over the cornea. Scleral lenses are designed to treat a variety of eye conditions, keratoconus, scleral contact lenses can be used for eyes that have undergone a cornea transplant, and for people with severe dry eyes caused by conditions such as Sjogren's syndrome, graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) and Stevens-Johnson syndrome, many of which do not respond to other forms of treatment.
