Let's first understand how FDA approved Corneal Refractive Therapy with Paragon CRT works to correct Myopia. In the myopic eye, the focusing power is too great. Light focuses in front of the retina, making distant objects appear blurry.

Today, Corneal Refractive Therapy provides an option for patients. Paragon CRT lenses correct myopia, with/without low or moderate astigmatism, by gently reshaping the cornea while you sleep.

Corneal Refractive Therapy uses specially designed vision retainers to gently and gradually reshape the front surface of the eye (the cornea) to eliminate or reduce nearsightedness (myopia) or astigmatism. The principle is similar to the use of a dental retainer used by an orthodontist to realign crooked teeth. The vision retainers are similar to contact lenses and are only worn at night while sleeping. They are then removed upon awakening to provide clear vision without using glasses or contact lenses! The retainers are comfortable and very easy to care for.

The Perfect Place to Multi-Task...IN YOUR SLEEP!
The basic purpose of corneal refractive therapy is to improve visual function.  For many, this is a safe, non-surgical approach to improving and restoring vision.

In people of all ages with increasingly stronger prescriptions, CRT can slow down or stop the need to get stronger glasses. Research shows that the effect may alter the person's long-term prescription
