Improve Your Vision While You Sleep

You can be free of daytime contacts and glasses during your daily activities with Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT), also known as orthokeratology. Unlike conventional contact lenses that are worn in the daytime, CRT lenses are inserted before you go to sleep and removed in the morning for corrected vision that lasts all day.

CRT uses specially designed contact lenses to gently reshape the curvature of the eye to improve vision while you are sleeping. It works by flattening the too-steep cornea of nearsightedness also called myopia. It does not work on farsightedness, which is caused by a cornea that is too flat.

Vision improvement is immediate. However, like a retainer for orthodontic braces, you have to continue to wear the lenses according to your doctor’s recommendation to maintain your vision correction.

When lenses are worn correctly, CRT is safe, non-invasive, and temporarily corrects nearsightedness up to -6.00 diopters, and mild amounts of astigmatism.

CRT lenses were FDA approved in June 2002. Through the contact lens work of Dr. Gary Weiner, Southern Dutchess Eye Care was one of the first practices in the country to offer CRT.

Are you a candidate for CRT?

CRT can be an excellent option for active adolescents who don’t want to fuss with glasses or contact lenses during the day, or who would benefit from unaided vision correction during their activities, such as swimming and gymnastics.

CRT is also an excellent option for police officers, firefighters, cooks, pilots, etc., or for those who are not candidates for laser vision correction.

To find out if you or your child is a good candidate for CRT, please schedule a consultation by calling us at (845) 896-6700.
