CRT or Corneal Refractive Therapy
Corneal Reshaping, or corneal refractive therapy, is a safe, non-surgical and reversible process that uses specially designed CRT® Brand Contact Lenses to gently reshape the surface of your eye during sleep, thereby providing clear vision during the day. This eye-reshaping is similar to what happens in LASIK, but there is no surgery. The effect is temporary, so lenses must be worn during sleep each night.
Corneal Reshaping with CRT Contact Lenses can be an ideal vision correction method for active children, especially those involved in sports, or children who are genetically prone to having their nearsightedness progress year after year. It's also well suited to many adults whose careers or hobbies aren't conducive to wearing glasses or contact lenses.
For children and adults who have stopped wearing daytime soft contact lenses due to lens dryness or discomfort, Corneal Reshaping with CRT Contact Lenses can provide a healthier alternative and provide clear vision during the day

Blue Light and Ultraviolet Damage
UV can cause damage to our eyes, particularly the lids, cornea and the lens. A cumulative effect of UV exposure can contribute to cataracts as well as pinguecula and pterygium (skin growths of the conjunctiva – the white part of your eye).
What can be done about it? Use sunglasses whenever you spend time outdoors in the sun! Yes, it’s that simple. And, if it’s many hours, put a hat on as well!
Blue light, which is part of the visible light spectrum, reaches deeper into the eye and its cumulative effect can cause damage to the retina. Furthermore, in certain wavelengths, blue light is associated in the development of age-related macular degeneration (ARMD).
Who can be affected by the blue light? Anyone spending time in front of flat screen devices, like computers, lap tops, iPad, Kindle, cell phone and energy saving light bulbs – all of these create blue light.
What can be done about it? Make sure to have a coating on your glasses lenses that will reflect most of that blue light back and away from your eyes.
