Vision Correction of the Future
Orthokeratology, also called Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT), is a method of correcting near-sightedness (myopia). Nearsightedness is when someone has difficulty seeing far distances. By using a specially designed lens prescribed by a certified doctor, a child can wear these lenses overnight to reshape their cornea and not wear any corrective glasses or contacts during the daytime. To maintain the CRT effect of myopia reduction, overnight lens wear must be continued on a prescribed schedule. Failure to do so can affect daily activities and visual fluctuations and changes in intended correction.
