|Our careful and gradual return to care: To ensure a safe environment, we are heeding state and federal mandates and taking many precautions including: Staff must take their temperature before work. Patients are screened by phone before arrival to assess their risk factors. Providers, staff, and patients must wear masks. Patients are asked to bring a mask or face covering. When they do not, one is provided. Temperatures are taken of all patients and visitors upon arrival. Strict hand hygiene is practiced, and surfaces are regularly disinfected. The number of individuals in any given space is reduced to allow ample social distancing. Unless there is a true need for a caregiver, accompanying guests are asked to wait safely in their car.|
Free yourself from contact lenses or glasses!
Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT) allows you to enjoy great vision without corrective lenses during the day - without surgery!
Recent clinical research combined with the latest corneal surface mapping technology, computerized manufacturing and space age oxygen-breathing materials have brought new science to corneal reshaping. CRT is a non-surgical process developed to reshape the cornea while you sleep. The result is the temporary correction of myopia (short-sightedness) with or without moderate astigmatism.
Similar in appearance to standard contact lenses, CRT lenses gently reshape the corneal surface during sleep to provide clear, natural vision when the lenses are removed upon waking. Then during the day, you can participate in activities without the annoyance of glasses or contacts. And eye irritation and dryness, sometimes associated with contact lens wear, is also eliminated!
CRT is FDA approved for the correction of a wide range of myopia. Most patients have rapid improvement in the first few days of treatment and achieve their near-to-optimum vision in 10 to 14 days. Click here for more information on Paragon CRT's website.
To find out whether you're a candidate for CRT, contact our office to schedule an appointment.
A scleral lens, also known as a scleral contact lens and ocular surface prostheses is a large contact lens that rests on the sclera and creates a tear-filled vault over the cornea. Scleral lenses are designed to treat a variety of eye conditions, keratoconus, scleral contact lenses can be used for eyes that have undergone a cornea transplant, and for people with severe dry eyes caused by conditions such as Sjogren's syndrome, graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) and Stevens-Johnson syndrome, many of which do not respond to other forms of treatment.
