Corneal Refractive Therapy
Clear vision without surgery, glasses, or daytime contacts.
What if you could correct your eyesight and reduce your dependence on corrective lenses, all while you sleep?
It may sound impossible. But for many, it’s a reality with Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT).

What is Corneal Refractive Therapy?
CRT uses specially designed, gas permeable contact lenses to temporarily reshape your cornea while you sleep.
The result is clear vision when you wake up and remove the lenses the following day. And that effect should last throughout the day.
The change in the shape of the cornea, as well as the vision correction you experience, will revert when you stop using the lenses.
What visual problems can CRT correct?
CRT is most commonly used to temporarily correct myopia (nearsightedness).
In some cases, it can be used to correct lesser degrees of astigmatism and farsightedness.
Our goal is to correct your vision by eliminating daytime use of eyeglasses or contact lenses. In the FDA trials for Paragon CRT® contact lenses, more than 90% were able to see 20/40 or better1 (the legal vision requirement for driving without glasses in most states).
To find out if CRT is right for you, get in touch with your eye care provider.
Am I a good candidate for CRT?
Only your eye care provider can answer that question.
However, most people with mild to moderate myopia are good candidates.
The treatment is highly preferred for people who have issues wearing eyeglasses or contact lenses.
