Corneal refractive therapy in Lambertville is a non-surgical treatment designed to gently reshape your cornea during sleep. The result is short-term myopia correction.
Like traditional contacts only in appearance, therapeutic lenses gradually transform irregularly shaped corneal surfaces overnight. Corneal refractive therapy (CRT) provides clearer vision upon awakening, once the lenses are removed.
Athletic individuals who enjoy participating in sports or those who live active lifestyles enjoy being able to see without the interference and bother of corrective lenses. The dryness and irritation that is often associated with wearing contact lenses is no longer an issue and you never have to worry about breaking your glasses.
CRT at Pinnacle Eye Group of Lambertville is the newest advancement in refractive therapy. Corneal refractive therapy in Lambertville allows for clear vision without glasses, contact lenses or eye surgery throughout the day. No more irritation from dryness, dust, and allergies. Also, CRT has been proved to hinder the progression of nearsightedness in young children and adolescents. Therapeutic lenses are specially designed to gently reshape the anterior optic surface while you sleep.
While laser vision correction is approved for patients 18 and over, corneal refractive therapy is a gentle, non-surgical solution ideal for younger teenagers and children who are sports-oriented or just don’t like wearing glasses or contact lenses.
