Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT)

Also known as orthokeratology (ortho-k) is a technologically advanced, non-invasive, non-surgical process which reshapes the cornea while you sleep. Patients who are candidates wear a uniquely designed oxygen permeable contact lens during sleep and remove the lens upon waking. During the day patients enjoy the benefits of clear vision without correction. That’s right--clear vision without glasses or daytime contact lenses!


Corneal Refractive Therapy is ideal for contact lens intolerant dry eye patients, athletic teens, swimmers, and children with rapidly changing eyeglass prescriptions. CRT is completely reversible and best of all there are no age restrictions for CRT which makes it an ideal option for children and growing teens.
