Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT) is an extremely effective option for treating nearsightedness, also known as myopia. This FDA-approved treatment requires no glasses, no daytime contact lenses and no surgery.
With CRT, a rigid gas permeable contact lens is worn overnight while you sleep allowing the lens to reshape the cornea and correct your glasses prescription. Upon awakening the contact lens is removed and your vision remains corrected during the day. One of the biggest benefits of CRT is that it prevents the progression of nearsightedness, whereas traditional glasses and contact lenses need to be made stronger each year.
