Corneal Refractive Therapy
Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT) is an exciting option for kids, adults, and anyone who isn’t eligible for laser vision correction. CRT is a gentle, non-surgical process that will reshape the cornea of your eye… while you sleep! Using specialized lenses that you can remove upon awakening, your cornea will be corrected during the night so you can enjoy going through your day without having to use glasses or contact lenses.
CRT is designed for nearsighted people and is especially ideal for athletes who do not like to use contacts. Nearsightedness occurs when light that comes through the cornea does not focus properly in the retina. This can typically be fixed by refocusing the light through glasses or contacts, but it can also be corrected by reshaping the cornea with CRT.
Improved vision can be achieved on the first day, but the complete results can take about 30 days. Corneal Refractive Therapy only lasts throughout the day, but it allows you to avoid wearing contacts or glasses as you go about your normal activities.
