CRT Contact Lenses at Plano Eye Care Center
If you are tired of wearing glasses and/or contacts during the day, you may want to consider CRT contact lenses from our eye doctor at Plano Eye Care Center. These specially designed lenses correct your vision while you sleep by reshaping your cornea.
How Paragon CRT Lenses Work to Correct Your Vision
Paragon CRT lenses are a specific brand of orthokeratology lens. When the lens is placed in the eye and worn overnight, the cornea slowly reshapes itself, according to the inside shape of the lens. When the cornea is reshaped, it is better able to focus light on the back of the eye, which corrects vision and eliminates the need to wear contacts or glasses during the day.
Good Candidates for CRT Lenses
CRT lenses are designed for individuals that are nearsighted or have astigmatism that affects their visual clarity. Good candidates are typically individuals who have one of these two refractive errors and who do not wish to wear glasses or contacts during the day, but do not want or cannot have vision correction surgery.
Reasons to Choose Paragon CRT Lenses
Paragon CRT lenses offer many benefits over other brands and types of orthokeratology lenses. Numerous FDA trials have proven that these lenses achieve 20/40 or better once the initial adjustment and treatment phase in complete for 90+ percent of patients, and these lenses are FDA approved for wear in both children and adults.
In children, nearsightedness often first appears around the age of six and can affect your child’s ability to see items at a distance, learn and develop. Correcting childhood nearsightedness with CRT lenses may be able to slow the progression of the refractive error. Adults who have nearsightedness or astigmatism may wish to wear CRT lenses if they have hectic work and physical activity schedules, but do not wish to have vision correction surgery.
