Why CRT is the best non-surgical alternative for vision improvement

Finally, some good news, now there are better things to do than buy stronger corrective lenses. If that could be the only problem, then glasses and contact lenses couldn’t be so bad. However, wearing glasses is cumbersome and severely limits a person’s lifestyle. Glasses can become foggy, have limited peripheral vision and can easily bounce off your face while doing sports or hobbies you enjoy. Don’t even get started on swimming, it’s literally impossible to have them on, anyway, who needs to see the shark coming right?

Contact lenses are not an escape point either. Most sportspeople benefit from them but there’s the fact that they dry out, dust might get trapped in them or allergy issues may arise which makes them irritating. If you were to choose between the two, it would be called choosing one of two evils.

Another corrective method is through eye surgery and in fact, some time back, this was the only way to deal with vision impairment. While this method is effective, it can get very expensive and is risky too. It must be mentioned, with the current technology the risk levels involved are close to zero but it still exists. The bad news is, if anything goes wrong during the surgery, the results are irreversible.

Then Corneal Reshape Therapy—CRT—happened. You could now solve you shortsightedness at the comfort of your bed and see clearly for the rest of the day without corrective lenses. CRT started a while back and was known as Orthokeratology and the main aim was to free people from dependence on glasses and contact lenses. But CRT is limited to people with short-sightedness and astigmatism.

With this, CRT is an alternative for LASIK, where the therapeutic process is supposed to reshape the corneal curvature without removing surgical tissues. This is made possible when your doctor prescribes special contact lenses that you’ll wear at night and are designed to reshape your cornea. At night, the lenses will flatten the cornea which reduces shortsightedness. You are required to remove them in the morning and spend the rest of the day independent of lenses while enjoying perfect vision. This therapy has been known to be effective in both children and adults but its results are not permanent. The following are more reasons that make CRT the best.


Compared to other methods, corneal molding has zero risks. The effects are reversible and the therapy can be stopped at any time with no side effects. Additionally, it has been observed that it can permanently correct shortsightedness in children. Making it the best and safest corrective procedure helps to prevent more eye refractive error.



What makes CRT very comfortable is the fact that it functions while you are asleep. There’s definitely lens awareness when you put the contacts on but once you sleep you become less aware. Then you remove them in the morning and enjoy clear images.


CRT not only offers clear vision but also causes productivity where other methods could have caused inconvenience.

Generally, CRT could be the answer to your problem.
