We offer Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT) a non-surgical process which reshapes the cornea while you sleep. CRT offers freedom from glasses and contact lenses for patients requiring certain types of vision correction and can prevent progressively worsening near sightedness that is common for children with myopia. If you want to get rid of glasses but avoid LASIK, watch the video below about CRT as an alternative to laser vision surgery for vision correction without glasses:

Q&A with Dr. Lindower
Dr. Lindower Answers Your Eyecare Questions
What are cataracts and how can they be treated?
Cataracts occur when the natural lens of the eye, positioned just behind the pupil, changes from clear to cloudy. This causes increasingly blurry vision that eyeglass prescription changes cannot help. When the blurriness worsens to the point that it interferes with a person’s ability to read or drive or hinders their lifestyle, the cloudy lens is surgically removed and replaced with a clear plastic one, restoring clear vision. These days, cataract surgery can take as little as 20 minutes, and with little down-time and excellent outcomes.
