PROTECTING YOUR CHILD’S POTENTIAL WITH PARAGON CRT
CRT, or Corneal Refractive Therapy, is a non-surgical option that helps correct nearsightedness without the daytime use of contacts or glasses. CRT lenses are worn at night, and correct the curvature of the cornea while sleeping so you can see clearly during the day.
THE SCIENCE BEHIND CRT
Ortho-K (short for Orthokeratology) is a non-surgical solution for patients with myopia (nearsightedness) that uses specially designed contact lenses (like Paragon CRT lenses) to improve vision.
When worn overnight, Paragon CRT contact lenses gently corrects the curvature of the cornea, resulting in a corneal shape that focuses light correctly onto the retina. When removed in the morning, distant objects will come back into focus and patients can see clearly without the use of glasses or daytime contacts.
PARAGON CRT CONTACT LENSES FIRST FDA APPROVAL FOR OVERNIGHT USE
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 better (the legal vision requirement for driving without glasses in most states).
ARE PARAGON CRT LENSES RIGHT FOR YOU oR YOUR CHILD?
Paragon CRT contact lenses stop or slow down the progression of myopia. They are the perfect solution for patients who:
- Want a lens-free lifestyle during the day
- Find soft contacts too irritating
- Are too young for LASIK or are not a LASIK candidate
- Blurred vision when viewing distant objects
- Frequent squinting and blinking
- Difficulty with nighttime driving
- Needing to sit closer to the television or computer
- Holding books and tablets uncomfortably close while reading
- Falling behind in school
Out of over 1 million patients, in over 50 countries worldwide, only nine adverse events have ever been reported, all of which were resolved. The risk of wearing Paragon CRT contact lenses is no greater than other contact lenses.
