A New Option For Those Who Are Nearsighted (Myopia)
Are you wondering how orthokeratology works? If you are nearsighted and you want the freedom from your daytime contacts or glasses, ask your certified eye care professional if Paragon CRT® Contact Lenses are right for you.
Nearsightedness and Your Cornea
Orthokeratology (Ortho-K) is a non-surgical treatment option that corrects nearsightedness and astigmatism using treatment lenses worn overnight. The lenses gently reshape your corneas while you sleep. Upon waking and removing the lenses, you will experience clearer vision without glasses or contact lenses throughout the day.
In a nearsighted eye, light from a far away object is focused in front of the retina, resulting in blurred vision. Traditional glasses change the direction of light before it enters the eye, allowing the image to focus on the retina for clear vision.
Unlike refractive surgery (LASIK), ortho-k is temporary, as continual use of nighttime treatment lenses is necessary to maintain its effect. It is an especially attractive option for those that are either apprehensive about or not a candidate for refractive surgery.
