Paragon CRT

Who can wear CRT?

Paragon CRT is currently designed for individuals with low to moderate nearsightedness (up to –6.00 diopters) with or without astigmatism (up to –1.75 diopters). The great thing about CRT is that there are no age restrictions. Even children can benefit from this treatment and not have to deal with lenses during the day. We usually will start fitting children into regular contact lenses around age 10 at the earliest and the same would be true for CRT. Children or teens who are active in sports, tend to forget or lose glasses or just won’t wear glasses are great candidates for CRT.

There are many people who have trouble with discomfort or dryness from wearing contact lenses during the day. Some people may not be ready for LASIK surgery or are not candidates for LASIK. CRT is a great option for these patients.
