We can prevent nearsightedness from getting worse!

No Glasses. No Daytime Contacts. No Surgery.
Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT)
Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT) is an exciting option to treat and prevent the progression of nearsightedness. With CRT, a rigid gas permeable contact lens is worn overnight while you sleep; the lens reshapes the front surface of your eye called the cornea, correcting your glasses prescription. Upon awakening the contact lens is removed and your vision remains corrected during the day, resulting in being able to see well without glasses or contacts. CRT lenses must be worn every night, like a retainer, in order for the correction to be maintained. The benefit of CRT is that it prevents the progression of nearsightedness, whereas traditional glasses and contact lenses need to be made stronger each year.
CRT corrects mild to moderate cases of myopia (nearsightedness) and some astigmatism. Your eye health as well as your glasses prescription and corneal curvature must be evaluated prior to a fitting to determine if you are eligible to be fit in CRT lenses.

Otherwise known as nearsightedness this condition is becoming an epidemic in the U.S. Since 1970, myopia has increased by 66%. About 42% of Americans between the ages of 12 and 54 suffer from Myopia. Genetics and environmental factors increase the risk of developing Myopia, including using cell phones, computers and any other near-vision work. It is estimated that the number of people with Myopia will continue to grow.
