Corneal Reshaping Therapy

Imagine All Day Freedom From Glasses and Contacts

Correct your vision while you sleep — Wake up seeing clearly.

Corneal Reshaping Therapy (CRT – also known as Corneal Refractive Therapy, Orthokeratology, or Ortho-k) corrects your vision while you sleep using a specially designed contact lens. The lens reshapes your cornea temporarily. There is no permanent change to your eye’s physiology – which is important because the eyes of children and teens are still maturing. (See the video below for more information about why myopia in children and young adults is increasing dramatically.) Treatment results should equal the vision correction provided by traditional glasses or contacts.1 Studies suggest the possibility that wearing lenses such as CRT helps to slow or even stop the progression of nearsightedness (myopia).

We have been using FDA-approved lenses for CRT treatment for over 10 years. Our patients wear these lenses at night and remove them in the morning. The result is clear vision all day whether it’s in the classroom, in the game, or on the job!

No more torn lenses. No more broken frames. No surgery required.

At Highline Vision Center, we trust Paragon CRT lenses. Paragon CRT is a specially designed therapeutic contact lens that gently and temporarily reshapes the cornea while you sleep. Paragon CRT has been FDA approved since 2002 and has been found both safe and effective for patients of all ages when worn during sleeping hours.

» Q: How long does it take for CRT to start working?

A: Most patients see dramatic improvement in the first few days, with complete vision correction within 1-2 weeks.

» Q: Is CRT safe?

A: Yes. Part of the safety profile lies in the fact that, if you stop wearing CRT lenses, your vision will return to its previous levels.

» Q: Can I see with my CRT lenses on?

A: Yes. One of the great features of CRT lenses is you will be able to see clearly with your lenses on and off.
