Corneal refractive therapy and myopia
The Answer to Freedom from Glasses without Surgery
Corneal Refractive Therapy, also known as CRT, is a non-surgical way to correct your vision to 20/20 without having to wear glasses or contact lenses during your day. This option of vision correction is safe and effective for both children and adults. This is great option to have clear vision without the need for glasses or contact lenses during sporting activities, at work or at school.
Another great attribute of CRT is it can reduce the progression of nearsightedness (myopia) in both children and adults that are having constant vision changes every year. This can prevent patients from getting high degrees of prescription and thick glasses. When myopia is progressing rapidly or gets to levels above -3.00 diopters the risk factors for having eye disease in the later stages of life more than quadruple.
CRT at Night, Clear Vision All Day
Corneal Refractive Therapy is a treatment prescribed by the doctors at the Advanced Vision Institute to correct both nearsightedness and astigmatism. It involves the doctor designing a specialty contact lens that is worn during sleep. The lens acts like a retainer in order to reshape the cornea and correct a patient’s vision. So when the patient awakes in the morning, the vision will be a clear 20/20 without the use of prescription glasses or contact lenses. This clear vision will last all day during work, school, and sports. Every 24-48 hours the retainer lenses will have to be worn again at night in order maintain the effects of the treatment.
