Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT)

What Is CRT?

Corneal Reshaping, or Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT,) is a safe, non-surgical and reversible process that uses specially designed CRT® Brand Contact Lenses to gently reshape the surface of your eye during sleep, thereby providing clear vision during the day. This eye-reshaping is similar to what happens in LASIK, but there is no surgery. The effect is temporary, so lenses must be worn during sleep each night. The result is better vision as light passes through the properly shaped cornea.

Who Benefits From CRT?

CRT can have good results in patients with nearsightedness and mild astigmatism. CRT allows many people freedom from wearing eyeglasses or contact lenses during the day. For children and adults who have stopped wearing daytime soft contact lenses due to lens dryness or discomfort, Corneal Reshaping with CRT Contact Lenses can provide a healthier alternative and provide clear vision during the day.

How Do I Know I Can Use CRT?

The doctor will use your data and particular situation to determine if CRT is right for you. You will need to be fitted for the devices and learn how to properly use and care for them.
