CRT is a non-surgical alternative to LASIK. Only people who have prescriptions for mild to moderate nearsightedness can qualify. It involves wearing a special, hard contact lens at night while you are sleeping. The lens is like a retainer for the eyes - it gently 'straightens out' the cornea. Unlike LASIK, which is permanent, CRT is temporary, and the effect lasts 24-48 hours. Therefore, most people must wear their CRT lens every night in order to see clearly witthout any correction for the next day. Even children over age 8 have had excellent success with this procedure!
The lens allows you to see clearly while you are wearing it (pleasant dreams!), and clearly without it on for about 24 hours! No, your dreams may not become any clearer, but your daytime vision certainly will!

During the month of July, we will be offering free CRT consults and
$50 off the lenses for those who qualify!
