CORNEAL REFRACTIVE THERAPY OR ORTHO-K
Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT) 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, CRT therapeutic lenses gently reshape the corneal surface during sleep to provide clear, natural vision when the lenses are removed upon waking.
Because 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.
CRT is also a great option for children. Studies have shown that children that undergo CRT not only have great daytime vision, it also slows the progression of their nearsightedness by 50% compared to children of the same age that wear standard contact lenses.
