Corneal Refractive Therapy

What is Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT)?

CRT can help you improve your vision while you sleep.

Corneal refractive therapy (CRT) is an exciting new non-surgical process that uses a therapeutic lens to gently reshape the cornea and temporarily correct nearsightedness—all while you sleep!

Corneal refractive therapy is a technique using unique rigid gas permeable contact lenses designed to temporarily correct nearsightedness (myopia) by safely, gently and reversibly reshaping your cornea at night as you sleep. Imagine the convenience of correcting your vision while you sleep with safe, CRT therapeutic lenses! Imagine waking up, working, playing and living through a full day without using any vision-correcting lenses!

Corneal refractive therapy, or Orthokeratology, is an option for people who would like to improve their vision without the aid of glasses, contact lenses, or laser vision correction.

The Paragon CRT lens by Paragon Science is the first specially designed contact lenses to earn FDA approval for night time corneal refractive therapy. It works by gently reshaping the cornea while you sleep!

Upon taking your lenses out in the morning, your natural vision is improved for most of your waking hours - freeing you from glasses and contact lenses. The Paragon CRT lens can temporarily correct low to moderate amount of nearsightedness, and may even be effective against farsightedness.

To find out how you can benefit from treatment, call now or schedule an appointment in Lees Summit or Lenexa.

CRT lenses appear very similar to standard contact lenses. The biggest difference: you put them in at night and remove them in the morning. Often times, they provide the freedom from glasses or contact lenses all day long.
