Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT)
- NO Glasses!
- NO Daytime Contacts Lenses!
- NO Surgery!
CRT is a FDA-approved non-surgical alternative to Lasik Surgery
to correct nearsightedness. It involves wearing
contact lenses while you sleep to reshape the cornea. This results in clear, natural vision upon removing the lenses each morning.
This procedure has other names including orthokeratology, or ortho-k.
Dr. Belill will use the Corneal Topographer to measure all angles of the cornea to ensure the best fit of the CRT lenses and the most
effective corneal reshaping.
Most patients notice improvement in vision within a few days, and after wearing the lenses for 10-14 consecutive nights, optimum
vision is reached. Temporary daytime contact lenses or glasses will be worn during this vision transition period.
This therapy is reversible and vision will return to baseline as soon as 72 hours after stopping nightly usage of the lenses.
The initial fee for CRT is all-encompassing, and includes: the intial fitting, professional examination services, follow-up care, and one
set of CRT lenses. After the first year, there is an annual CRT consultation fee and the CRT lenses must be replaced on average every
