What Is Corneal Reshaping Therapy?

This procedure has been used for many years to reshape the cornea of the eyes. This procedure is done without lasers and is considered a non-invasive type of treatment. The reshaping is accomplished through the use of hard contact lenses. Once put into place, these lenses will slowly reshape the cornea.  This procedure can reduce the dependence on eyeglasses or corrective contact lenses. Corneal reshaping therapy can also help slow the progression of myopia. Children often benefit from corneal reshaping therapy more than adults do.

Is Corneal Reshaping Therapy Safe?

CRT has been used safely for decades and has proven positive results. Our optometrist will evaluate you before starting any type of vision therapy or procedure to ensure that you are a good candidate for the treatment. Our eye doctor will discuss with you the cleaning and care instructions for the contact lenses that are used during this treatment. You must take proper care of the lenses to ensure there are no infections or problems.
