Experienced Eye Doctors Prescribing Paragon CRT
Paragon Vision Sciences manufactures a lens trademarked “Paragon CRT” (Paragon Corneal Refractive Therapy) and marketed as “Accelerated Orthokeratology” (AOK) using base material manufactured by Paragon and distributed to Paragon approved laboratories. It is a tradename for a specific type of orthokeratology (orthoK) lens. An alternative to LASIK and other surgical methods of correcting blurry eyesight, Orthokeratology offers people a non-surgical method of achieving vision without contact lenses or glasses while awake through corneal reshaping therapy.. A special lens is fitted for the eye which the patient sleeps in, and upon awakening removes. Most people are able to go for at least one day without contacts or glasses after sleeping in the lens.
Options such as OrthoK, cornea refractive therapy including paragon crt (vision shaping treatment) are particularly helpful when seeking to improve eyesight in children, and reduce change in vision , specifically myopia in children and may, in some cases reduce the risk of children with myopia advancing to high myopia.
