Corneal Refractive Therapy (Paragon CRT)
Now you can be free of daytime contact lenses and glasses during your daily activities without undergoing surgery and enjoy great vision! Recent clinical research combined with the latest corneal surface mapping technology, computerized manufacturing and space age oxygen-breathing materials have brought new science to corneal reshaping. Talk to our optometrists in Huntington and Lake Grove, NY during your annual eye exam.
Corneal Refractive Therapy is a non-surgical process clinically developed to reshape the cornea while you sleep. The result is the temporary correction of myopia with or without moderate astigmatism.
Similar in appearance to standard contact lenses, Paragon corneal refractive therapy therapeutic lenses gently reshape the corneal surface during sleep and provide clear, natural vision when the lenses are removed upon waking.
Because Paragon corneal refractive therapy offers freedom from glasses and the hassle of wearing contact lenses during the day, this leading-edge technology can enhance the lifestyle of those requiring vision correction. Active individuals can freely participate in sports without the interference of glasses or bother of contacts. Eye irritation or dryness, sometimes associated with contact lens wear due to outside dust and pollutants, is eliminated.
How Paragon Works
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. Daily Disposable Contact Lenses are available in Long Island, NY.
