Corneal Reshaping Therapy

Imagine Vision Correction Without Surgery, Eyeglasses, or Always-In Contact Lenses

That’s the Power of Corneal Reshaping Therapy (CRT)

A less-commonly known process compared to laser refractive surgery, corneal reshaping therapy is an excellent alternative to surgical vision correction and corrective lenses.

Worn while you sleep and removed during the day, CRT lenses gently reshape your cornea and correct the refractive error (myopia or astigmatism) that causes your vision impairment. Think of CRT as your laser-free nightly LASIK session.

Safe & Effective Vision Correction

Vision Correction Without Surgery or All-Day Corrective Lenses

With its origins in Orthokeratology – an established and well-documented vision correction practice that was granted FDA approval in 1994 – corneal reshaping therapy is a safe and widely recognized way to correct your vision. The FDA approved corneal reshaping therapy for overnight use in 2002.
