Here is what several
CRT patients of
Dr. Shum are saying
about CRT contacts:
Laura Forbes, 55 year old, owner of an ad
agency whose vision improved from 20/400 to
20/20 in three weeks.
When I read that there was no surgery and involved sleeping in the lens rather than wearing it, it really appealed to me since I have dry eyes that have worsened as I've gotten older. My comfort level in wearing contact lens during the day was declining. . . It's very convenient and comfortable to go to sleep with these lenses in, and being able to wake up in the morning and see, is fabulous.
Cara Wright, 17 year old high school student who
corrected to 20/20 in one week.
I'd been wearing contact lenses for six years and they always hurt. This is much more convenient. I don't have to worry about taking them out and I can see as well as I did with contacts. This is really great for working outside - I don't have to worry about getting dirt under my contacts - and for swimming.
Mark McBryde, 40 year old CPA who has been
using CRT since last May.
I was tired of the hassle of wearing glasses. They would slide off or fog up. With sports or outdoor activity, I no longer have to worry about glasses dropping off and breaking or getting scratched. . . It took about a week before 1 noticed the changes in my eyesight (with the vision retainers). I don't have to put glasses on to see something in the distance, like signs or people's faces.
Christy Bruno, 31 year old aerobic instructor who
corrected from 20/300 to 20/20 in six days.
I'm an aerobics instructor so I'm constantly sweating and it would always drip down in my eyes when I am lying down and doing abs and it would just burn my contacts so bad... I noticed the changes in my vision immediately. I was thinking about LASIK. but I have had allergies and had a severe eye injury about 10 years ago. This is the best of both worlds, using contacts but being able to take them out during the day and still see 20/20.
