The Myopia Epidemic

What Is Myopia?

Adults and children with myopia, or nearsightedness, have difficulty seeing objects clearly from a distance because their corneas are usually slightly longer than normal from front to back. This common condition is often genetic, but studies also link the recent surge in cases to the increased use of handheld electronic devices.3


Without treatment, children could fall behind in school, experience eyestrain and headaches, or face more serious future risks, such as retinal detachment, glaucoma, macular degeneration, and blindness.4

Paragon CRT lenses are a non-surgical solution to nearsightedness, or myopia. CRT lenses are worn overnight, and work to gently correct the curvature of the cornea while you sleep. In the morning, simply remove the lenses and enjoy your enhanced vision. It will take between 7 to 14 days of treatment to obtain unaided-vision throughout your day.7
