A cataract is a common vision problem that is mostly related to aging. It refers to the clouding of the eyes’ lenses, affecting vision. Cataracts generally progress slowly and present cloudy, discolored lenses, blurred vision, double vision, and light sensitivity as symptoms.
Corneal refractive therapy (CRT) or orthokeratology is a non-invasive procedure that helps align your vision as you sleep. The procedure employs the use of a gas-permeable contact lens that mildly reshapes your cornea. This procedure is done at night as you sleep which leads to clear vision during the day. A successful procedure guarantees that you will no longer need to wear contact lenses or spectacles during the day.
