There are several ways our optometrist treats myopia also known as nearsightedness. One treatment we offer is CRT lenses. If you live in the Downtown Lawton, OK, Newcastle, or anywhere else in the surrounding area, Complete Eye Care is here to help. Here is some more information on CRT lenses.
How CRT Lenses Work
Corneal refractive therapy, or CRT, is a non-surgical method of improving eyesight. CRT lenses are worn exclusively overnight, meaning you will not need to wear contacts or eyeglasses during the day. CRT lenses put gentle pressure on the eye to correct corneal curvature as you sleep. The process is similar to an orthodontist correcting your bite through a dental appliance worn overnight. Corrected cornea shape allows your eyes to focus and absorb light more effectively.
Treatment From Our Optometrist
When worn properly, CRT lenses eliminate the need for daily corrective lens wear. CRT lenses have been approved by the FDA for use by both adults and children. With CRT lenses, vision is easily correctable to 20/40 or better. After examining your eyes, our optometrist will let you know if you are a suitable candidate for this kind of treatment.
