Corneal Reshaping Therapy (Orthokeratology)
Corneal Reshaping Therapy (CRT) is an FDA approved revolutionary non-surgical procedure that eliminates the need for glasses or daytime contact lenses. It improves vision by gently reshaping your eye WHILE YOU SLEEP using specially designed therapeutic contact lenses. You just put the specially fitted lenses in at bedtime, and when you awake, you will have clear, sharp, natural vision for your waking hours.
This safe and effective treatment can correct nearsightedness , farsightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia (blurred near vision). It is a great alternative to LASIK for those who are not ready for surgery.
Orthokeratology is also a form of Myopia Control in adolescents. Myopia is a fast growing disease that not only requires glasses and gets worse over time; it can affect your child’s eye health in adulthood and cause diseases like glaucoma, cataracts, retinal detachment, and more.
Keep in mind, with Pediatrics, treatments are about prevention. Silent issues can lead to eye issues and permanent problems if not treated early. Schedule your child’s first eye exam online if they are 6 months or older to determine if they have any eye issues that need attention, or if Myopia Control is right for them.
