Corneal Refractive Therapy
Corneal refractive therapy or ‘CRT’ is a method of correcting your vision without surgery or the daily wearing of contacts and eyeglasses. We fit you to a lens you’ll wear overnight, then remove in the morning. The lens reshapes your cornea while you sleep so that you can go through your day without the need for corrective eyewear.
What is Paragon CRT®?
Now, you can be free of daytime contact lenses or glasses! Enjoy excellent vision during your daily activities without undergoing surgery. Recent clinical research, combined with the latest corneal surface mapping technology, computerized manufacturing, and space-age oxygen-breathing materials, has brought new science to corneal reshaping.
Corneal Refractive Therapy is a non-surgical process clinically developed to reshape the cornea while you sleep. The result is the temporary correction of myopia, with or without moderate astigmatism. Similar in appearance to standard contact lenses, Paragon CRT therapeutic lenses gently reshape the corneal surface during sleep to provide clear, natural vision when the lenses are removed upon waking.
Because Paragon CRT offers freedom from glasses and the hassle of wearing contact lenses during the day, this leading-edge technology can enhance the lifestyle of those requiring vision correction. Active individuals can freely participate in sports without the interference of glasses or bothersome contacts. Eye irritation and dryness, sometimes associated with contact lens wear due to outside dust and pollutants, are also eliminated.
Paragon CRT is a unique oxygen permeable therapeutic contact lens designed to temporarily correct myopia (nearsightedness and moderate astigmatism levels) by gently reshaping the cornea during sleep. Patients remove them in the morning and go throughout the day without any other correction. Correct your vision while you sleep with safe, non-surgical Paragon CRT therapeutic lenses. Enjoy excellent vision 24 hours a day, without the hassles of glasses and daytime contacts.
Having fit countless patients with CRT lenses, Dr. Kimberly Allen will examine your eyes to see if you are a likely candidate for CRT lenses. Just imagine going all day long without the need for contact lenses or eyeglasses. Our patients love them.
