Professional Vision Introduces Corneal Refractive Therapy as a Treatment for the Progression of Myopia!


The Professional Vision team is excited to introduce Corneal Refractive Therapy as a treatment for the progression of myopia. Dr. Richard Barnstein is trained and certified to fit Paragon CRT (an FDA requirement). With no age restrictions, Paragon CRT represents a unique opportunity for adolescents & adults to experience the freedom from daytime contacts and glasses with this great alternative to traditional vision correction. Paragon CRT is a specially designed contact lens that gently and temporarily reshapes the cornea at night.

Dr. Richard Barnstein states that, “I’m really excited to offer this modality of treatment for the progression of myopia. This gives our patients options in addition to the many choices we offer patients at Professional Vision.”

Paragon CRT temporarily corrects nearsightedness (myopia) with or without moderate astigmatism. Paragon CRT has been proven both safe and effective for patients of all ages when worn during sleeping hours, earning this therapy the first and only FDA approval for overnight use. The result is no more torn lenses, no more broken frames and no more discomfort from daily wear contact lens-induced dry eyes.

Whether the patient plays sports, spends time in a dusty or windy environment, or is simply applying make-up, with Corneal Refractive Therapy nothing gets in the way of their vision. Since there is no permanent change to the eye, the patient has the ultimate control and flexibility in their vision correction.
