Let’s understand how 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. When eyeglasses or contacts are worn, light is focused on the retina so you can see clearly.
Laser surgery is another way to correct myopia. It permanently alters the cornea and corrects the focal point, producing clear vision.
Today, Corneal Refractive Therapy provides a new option for patients. Paragon CRT appliances correct myopia, with or without low or moderate astigmatism, by gently reshaping the cornea while you sleep.
When the Paragon CRT appliances are removed in the morning, the treated cornea allows light to focus on the retina. The result is clear, natural vision for all or most of your waking hours.
