What is CRT or Corneal Reshaping Therapy?

Imagine your child’s day without the hassles of glasses or contact lenses. Your child can start experiencing better days by simply wearing CRT therapeutic lenses while they sleep. CRT is a non-surgical treatment using specially designed therapeutic contact lenses called retainers worn while sleeping. The lenses gently and safely reshape the front surface of your eye (the cornea) to correct your child’s vision. The result: clear vision the whole day whether it’s in class or in the game.
