Children who often deal with nearsightedness when they hit school age think that glasses are the only option. However, Corneal Refractive therapy or CRT 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. In short, you can see clearly during the day without glasses or contact lenses because your eyes are undergoing painless, reshaping therapy at night.
For parents who want to slow down the progression of their child's myopia, the CRT program may be an option. Children that are able to work with an eye doctor & would enjoy the chance to wear contact lenses can discover the benefits of CRT.
CRT enables a child to see clearly during the day without glasses or contact lenses because their eyes would undergo painless, reshaping therapy at night.
This leading-edge technology can enhance the lifestyle of those requiring vision correction. Active kids 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.
Children can participate in various sports & games, swimming, or any fast-paced environment without worrying about glasses falling or losing a contact lens.
