Myopia Management

View Video

Nearsightedness, or myopia, as it is medically termed, is a vision condition in which people can see close objects clearly, but objects farther away appear blurred.

 

Myopia occurs if the eyeball is too long or the cornea (the clear front cover of the eye) is too curved. As a result, the light entering the eye isn't focused correctly, and distant objects look blurred. Myopia affects nearly 30% of the U.S. population. While the exact cause of myopia is unknown, there is significant evidence that many people inherit myopia, or at least the tendency to develop myopia. If one or both parents are nearsighted, there is an increased chance their children will be nearsighted. Even though the tendency to develop myopia may be inherited, its actual development may be affected by how a person uses his or her eyes. Individuals who spend considerable time reading, working at a computer, or doing other intense close visual work may be more likely to develop myopia.

 

Myopia is becoming more common among children. While there is no proven direct link, research suggests that children who spend more time indoors doing near-focused activities (such as computer work, video games, and reading) have higher rates of myopia than those who spend more time outdoors.

 

Myopia cannot be reversed; however, the goal of treatment is to keep it from getting worse. This can protect a child’s eye health in the future (reducing the risk of retinal detachments or other ocular disorders), despite still needing to wear glasses or contact lenses.

Have you ever wanted the ability to see clearly without wearing glasses or contacts and without surgery?

 

Would you be interested in a contact lens worn while sleeping, and in the morning once you remove it, you can see clearly for all of your waking hours without glasses and contacts?

 

Paragon CRT® is a specially designed therapeutic contact lens that gently and temporarily reshapes the cornea while you sleep.  Through intense research and clinical testing, Paragon CRT has been FDA approved as both safe and effective for patients of all ages when worn during sleeping hours.  The result is great vision 24 hours a day - without lenses during waking hours and while they're in at night - with correction of myopia (nearsightedness) and myopia with astigmatism.

 

No more torn lenses, no more broken frames, no more discomfort from dry eyes.  Paragon CRT puts an end to these hassles.  Whether you're playing sports, working in a dusty or windy environment, or simply applying makeup, with Corneal Refractive Therapy nothing stands between you and excellent vision. 

 

Dr. Rob Szeliga has trusted Paragon CRT and Corneal Refractive Therapy for his own eyes since 2002!

 

FDA regulations require practitioners to successfully complete the Paragon CRT Certification test before fitting Paragon CRT lenses for Corneal Refractive Therapy.  Call Spring Hill Eyecare, PLLC today and ask Dr. Rob Szeliga if Corneal Refractive Therapy with Paragon CRT is right for you.  Make life without glasses and daytime contacts a reality.  Because the next time you close your eyes, you could open them to a whole new world.
