If you offer myopia control interventions in your practice and are looking for more precision in your ortho-K contact lens fits, a new option from CooperVision might be able to help. The company says it now offers 5mm back optic zone diameter customization for its Paragon CRT and Paragon CRT Dual Axis contact lenses. Because this design offers more paracentral steepening than a 6mm zone, it may increase the efficacy of myopia management strategies, CooperVision says, assuming a dose-dependent relationship exists between paracentral steepening and ortho-K’s anti-myopia effect.

The company says that Paragon CRT is recommended for patients with <0.75D of corneal astigmatism based on K values while CRT Dual Axis is designed for those with >0.75D of corneal astigmatism to enhance the cornea-to-fitting relationship.
