Did you know that thousands of nearsighted Coloradoans are experiencing clear vision all day long without the need for glasses or conventional contact lenses and there is NO SURGERY involved?
It’s true. Utilizing new technology doctors are now able to reshape the front surface of the eye with a special contact lens that is worn while the patient sleeps. Upon awakening, the patient simply removes the contact lens and enjoys clear vision all day long.
The secret is known as Corneal Refractive Therapy, or CRT, and it uses special contact lenses developed by Paragon, a contact lens manufacturer who has pioneered the concept of gas permeable contact lenses.
When properly fit by your optometrist, Paragon CRT lenses reduce or eliminate up to 5.00 diopters of myopia … while you sleep! The lenses employ a technology known as reverse geometry which results in a flattening of the cornea to a pre-determined curvature, thus correcting the vision. Typically, the vision stays clear all day, and the patient re-inserts the lenses again at bedtime to maintain the correction the next day. Many patients report that they only require wearing the lenses every other night or even every third night.
It is safe, effective, non-invasive and entirely reversible should the patient so choose.
Ask your optometrist if Paragon CRT is an appropriate option for your vision correction.
