Ortho-K (short for Orthokeratology) is a non-surgical solution for patients with myopia (nearsightedness) that uses specially designed contact lenses (like Paragon CRT lenses) to improve vision.
When worn overnight, Paragon CRT contact lenses gently corrects the curvature of the cornea, resulting in a corneal shape that focuses light correctly onto the retina. When removed in the morning, distant objects will come back into focus and patients can see clearly without the use of glasses or daytime contacts.
Our goal is to correct your vision by eliminating daytime use of eyeglasses or contact lenses. In the FDA trials for Paragon CRT contact lenses, more than 90% were able to see 20/40 or better1 (the legal vision requirement for driving without glasses in most states).
FDA-APPROVED FOR CHILDREN AND ADULTS
Paragon CRT contact lenses stop or slow down the progression of myopia. They are the perfect solution for patients who:
Want a lens-free lifestyle during the day
Find soft contacts too irritating
Are too young for LASIK or are not a LASIK candidate
Out of over 1 million patients, in over 50 countries worldwide, 2 only nine adverse events have ever been reported, all of which were resolved.3 The risk of wearing Paragon CRT contact lenses is no greater than other contact lenses.
COULD CRT BE RIGHT FOR ME OR MY CHILD?
Myopia (nearsightedness) usually begins in childhood, as early as age 6. When left uncorrected, myopia can affect a child’s ability to learn and develop
If you or your child suffers from any of the following symptoms of myopia, Paragon CRT contact lenses might be right for you:
Blurred vision when viewing distant objects
Frequent squinting and blinking
Difficulty with nighttime driving
Needing to sit closer to the television or computer
Holding books and tablets uncomfortably close while reading
