I used to wear prescription glasses. Now I no longer need them. I did not have Lasik done, although that is something I would consider when I am much older!
I wear corneal refractive theraphy lenses at night. These lenses act like retainers for my eyes. OVernight, they gently reshape my cornea so that I can see the next day. I do not need glasses and it lasts all day. I generally wear my CRT lenses at night for atleast five hours.
These are hard lenses so it did take a little time to adjust to the sensation. However, it only bothers me when I am awake because of all the blinking. I feel the thickness of the lens as the eyelid slides over the lens. When I am asleep, no blinking. Another slight con is that I have trouble intentionally getting the lens off of my eye. I need to use a little suction tube to remove the lens. But sometimes, all I need to do is rub my eye and off comes the lens! I am still trying to figure out how I did it!
You may want to try CRT lens if :
- Lasik scares you
- You want a Lasik alternative
- You have myopic vision
- You have low to zero astigmatism
- You want something that is reversible
I love my CRT lenses!
