Gilbert, AZ – From struggling to see the front of the classroom to a lack of participation in sports – nearsightedness (myopia) can influence a child’s quality of life. Nearsightedness is rapidly growing into a worldwide epidemic, it is estimated that by 2050, 50% of the world’s population will be nearsighted1.
Paragon CRT® contact lenses are designed to allow a child to see clearly during the day without the need for glasses or daytime contacts. These lenses are orthokeratology (Ortho-K) lenses which are worn overnight to gently reshape the curvature of the cornea, which focuses light correctly onto the retina. The lenses are removed in the morning for clear vision. Paragon CRT® lenses are the perfect solution for those who live a lifestyle that requires being lens-free during the day, those who have difficulties with soft contacts, and those who are too young for surgery.
The manufacturers of the lens, Paragon Vision Sciences aims to change the lives of children who are nearsighted and have trouble with educational development and quality of life because of their vision.
Parents have the critical job of recognizing when their child may be suffering from nearsightedness. If your child is experiencing blurred vision when viewing distant objects, frequent squinting and blinking, headaches, sits closely to the television, holds books closely to their face, or is falling behind in school, they may be suffering from myopia. If you believe your child is showing signs of nearsightedness, it is crucial that you take your child to see an eye doctor.
Only a Paragon CRT® certified eye doctor can prescribe Paragon CRT® contacts. For more information regarding these life-changing lenses or to learn more about nearsightedness visit Paragon Vision Sciences website to find a certified eye doctor: https://www.paragonvision.com/
