Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT)

resized_282x141_Northshore Optometry_Icons_paragonCorneal Refractive Therapy contact lenses are a unique rigid gas permeable design that temporarily corrects nearsightedness by gently ( and reversibly ) reshaping your cornea while you sleep. You may then go throughout the day without wearing contacts or glasses and see great! Presently, they correct nearsightedness up to -4.00 and astigmatism up to -0.75.

Jamie from Muskegon writes: "I am so glad that Dr. Swain told me about CRT contact lenses. I was a little concerned at first since I have never worn contacts or even put drops in my eyes. However, wearing the lens at night has not been a problem at all. No longer do I have to put my glasses on to read the aisle signs in the grocery store and then take them off to read the food labels. For the first time I was able to attend a conference glasses-free! I was able to see the screen in the front of the room and read the handouts without alternating between glasses on and then glasses off. It was wonderful! I wish I would have known about CRT contact lenses years ago."

Mitch an 11 year old male from Muskegon writes:  In June of 2013, I got my CRT lenses.  Since then my life has been a lot easier.  I do not have to go through the frustration of dry contact lenses or fogging glasses.  Before I got my CRT lenses, I mostly wore glasses.  My glasses often got pushed off my desk, knocked off my face and then scratched, etc.  They also were dirty a lot.  Now all I have to do is put my CRT lenses in before I go to bed and the next morning I have 20/20 vision.  The first time I put the lenses in I felt them a lot.  But I got used to them after 5 days.  When I take out my CRT lenses in the morning, my vision is crisper than with glasses or regular contacts.  In conclusion, CRT has changed my life for the better!

Alydia a 10 year old female from Muskegon writes:  My night time contacts give me many benefits.  When I had glasses, they would slip around on my nose when I played soccer.  Now I don't have to worry about breaking my glasses and can concentrate on the game.  When I had to wear regular contacts and went swimming, I had to be careful not to open my eyes underwater or I would lose the contacts.  Now I don't have to worry about my eyes when water skiing or swimming. I feel so little stress about my eyes now thanks to CRT.
