The illustration above is what your child might see if they are nearsighted. There are varying degrees of nearsightedness that your child can suffer from. Nearsightedness is where distant objects are blurry and out of focus. Even a low prescription of nearsightedness can alter your child’s perception of the world.  When a child is nearsighted there are many factors that limit their quality of life.

  • Risk of breaking glasses.
  • Worry over lost daytime contacts.
  • The hassle of sports goggles.
  • Lower self-esteem.
  • Unwilling to try new things.
  • Less active in sports.
  • Discomfort from glasses or daytime contacts.
  • Hindrance towards an ability to learn.
  • Challenges to social skills.1

These are all inconveniences that can come with being nearsighted for a child. Your child can avoid these issues and safely correct their vision by switching to overnight contact lenses!

You Want the Best for Your Child!

As a parent, you know what’s best for your child. While traditional treatment options such as glasses or daytime contacts are available, there is a life-changing treatment called orthokeratology (Ortho-K). Ortho-K contact lenses are worn by your child overnight and gently corrects the curvature of the cornea while they sleep. In the morning, your child simply removes the lenses and can enjoy improved vision all day without the need for glasses or daytime contacts. Paragon CRT® Contact Lenses are Ortho-K lenses. Paragon CRT® lenses don’t just correct your child’s vision; they change the way they see the world and the special place they have in it.
