How does Corneal Reshaping Work?
A high oxygen lens is used to gently reshape the surface of the eye while you sleep to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and/or astigmatism. The lenses are worn only while you sleep, so during the day you enjoy clear vision without the need for glasses or contacts.
How is Advanced Eyecare Different?
Technology and experience are two key ingredients to successful outcomes. We are excited to offer Wave custom CR lenses as an alternative to premade lenses such as Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT). Dr. Wang has been successfuly designing Wave lenses for nearly 10 years and as one of the top fitters in the nation, he was invited to participate in Wave’s FDA approval process. Dr. Wang also currently serves as the national clinical consultant to all Wave corneal reshaping practices in the U.S.
Can my eyes really stop getting worse?
A study performed in 2008 showed that children wearing glasses or conventional contact lenses experienced worsening vision 10 times greater than a similar group of children undergoing CR with Wave custom lenses. While there are very few guarantees in life, we feel CR is unmatched when it comes to protecting our children from worsening nearsightedness.
Is CR Safe?
Just like conventional contact lenses, good hygiene habits and proper care of the CR molds is necessary to minimize risk of eye infections.
How much does CR cost?
Fees depend on complexity of prescription and include the exam to determine how much treatment you need, custom digital design of your lenses, lens wear instructions and all CR related follow ups for 12 months. Best of all, the initial consult to determine whether you are a good CR candidate is free and we offer flexible payment plans including zero interest options!
