What is CRT?
Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT) is a method of nonsurgical vision correction that is increasingly popular among patients who prefer not to wear daytime glasses and contacts.
How Does It Work?
The CRT procedure is an attractive alternative to laser eye surgery as it is noninvasive, reversible and involves the fitting of specially designed contact lenses, to be worn only overnight. During sleep, the lenses gently reshape the patient’s corneas to achieve clear vision throughout their waking hours.
Corneal Refractive Therapy is also clinically proven to slow the progression of childhood myopia, which continues to be a rising concern worldwide!
