Your child is nearsighted. They struggle to see the whiteboard without glasses. They can’t make out objects across the soccer field. They end up sitting too close to the television. Your child is not alone. Nearsightedness, also known as myopia, is increasing at epidemic levels. By 2020, it is estimated that one-third of the world’s population will suffer from myopia. It is a condition that usually begins in childhood, impacting children as young as age six. Left untreated, it can impact your child’s ability to learn and develop.1 A common solution for nearsighted children is glasses or daytime contacts. Yet how many times do parents have to deal with a lost contact or broken glasses? Glasses and even conventional soft contacts make playing sports and living an active lifestyle more difficult. Thanks to Paragon Vision Sciences, there is a state-of-the-art treatment for your child’s nearsightedness that provides freedom from glasses and daytime contacts!
You’ve heard your child’s complaints and you may even suffer from it yourself. Objects in the distance appear blurry. They can’t see words on the board. This is called nearsightedness (clinically known as myopia). It impacts one in three Americans.1 Nearsightedness happens when light doesn’t focus correctly on the retina, usually because the eye becomes too long. The eye elongates due to genetic and environmental factors such as long periods of time on near work (phones, video games, books).1
Paragon Vision Sciences developed overnight orthokeratology (Ortho-K) contact lenses two decades ago. Ortho-K uses gas-permeable contact lenses worn overnight which gradually and gently corrects the curvature of the cornea. The result is clear vision once a patient removes the lenses in the morning. In 2002, Paragon Vision Sciences was the first company to receive FDA approval for overnight corneal reshaping lenses through their Paragon CRT® contact lenses. This solution has helped millions of people.
To get your child wearing Paragon CRT® contacts visit a Paragon CRT® certified eye doctor. The eye doctor measures your child’s eyes in the office. The advanced equipment painlessly and quickly maps the eye. Once fitted for Paragon CRT® lenses, your child will be taught how to care for the contact lenses, putting them on each night and removing them the next morning. Soon a day without glasses or soft contact lenses is a reality.
Nearsightedness is a reality today for millions of children. Imagine your child struggling to see their friends on the playground, having to deal with sports goggles on the field, or being hindered by the risk of losing a contact while at school. With Paragon Vision Sciences CRT lenses, your child can learn, socialize, run, and play without any kind of eyewear or daytime contacts.
Without glasses or daytime contacts your child can take part in an active lifestyle. You will save money in the long run by not replacing broken glasses and have peace of mind knowing a contact won’t fall out during a game or competition.
