Autumn rings in a season of gratitude and as we near the Thanksgiving holiday we want to express our thankfulness for the gift of sight. One public opinion poll found that Americans rank “losing eyesight” as one of the worst health concerns that could affect them.1 Without your sight you lose an ability to fully experience the world around you. You can no longer enjoy being active, you could lose independence, and overall visual impairment can hinder your quality of life. At Paragon Vision Sciences we understand the importance of healthy vision. We want to express our appreciation for being able to changes lives and preserve the gift of sight. Learn how we help people gain freedom from the effects of nearsightedness, from glasses and daytime contacts, and hold onto their precious vision.

No Ordinary Contact Lens

Nearsightedness affects a quarter of the world’s population.2 From children struggling to see the front of the classroom to adults who can’t make out street signs on a drive – nearsightedness can greatly impact your day-to-day life. By 2050 it is expected nearly half of the world’s population will be nearsighted.1 While traditional treatment options such as glasses or daytime contacts are available, we manufacture a life-changing treatment called Paragon CRT® contact lenses. Paragon CRT® Lenses are overnight orthokeratology (Ortho-K) contacts. Ortho-K contact lenses are worn by you or your child overnight and gently corrects the curvature of the cornea while sleeping. In the morning, remove the lenses and enjoy clear vision all day without the need for glasses or daytime contacts. Paragon CRT® Lenses don’t just correct vision; they give FREEDOM from the hassle of glasses or daytime contacts.
