A form of Ortho-Keratology, CRT is a non-surgical approach to freedom from daily glasses, and contact lens wear. It is ideal for eyes that are near-sighted, have mild astigmatism, or may be dry and uncomfortable when wearing regular daily contact lenses.
All contact lenses will put pressure on the cornea, and reshape the front of the eye to varying degrees. Hard contact lenses will do this more than soft lenses. CRT utilizes this principle to gently change the shape of one’s cornea while they sleep, allowing them to go about their day without contacts, or glasses. This procedure is not permanent when not wearing the CRT contacts for 1-2 weeks the eye slowly regains it’s former shape. No needles, no incisions, no fuss.
