Blanchard Contact Lenses Adds Paragon CRT to Product Portfolio

Product: Paragon CRT and Paragon CRT Dual Axis
Top Line: Blanchard Contact Lenses, a CooperVision Specialty EyeCare company, has expanded its product portfolio in the U.S. to include Paragon CRT and Paragon CRT Dual Axis ortho-k lenses.
Close Up: Paragon CRT and Paragon CRT Dual Axis are reverse geometry corneal lenses manufactured in high-Dk gas permeable lens material for myopia management.
“We are pleased to further diversify our specialty lens product offerings with Paragon’s innovative CRT and Dual Axis ortho-k designs,” said Jean Blanchard, president of Blanchard Contact Lenses. “With myopia growing at epidemic rates, myopia management is becoming one of the essential options for eyecare professionals to add to their practice. More broadly, adopting both ortho-k and scleral lenses will allow practitioners to improve the lives and vision of patients of all ages, while making them powerhouses in the specialty eyecare field.”
Vital Stats: In 2002, Paragon’s lens designs and material (HDS 100) were the first to receive FDA-approval for overnight wear with no age restrictions, up to -6.00D of myopic correction (with or without astigmatism) and 1.75D of astigmatic correction.
