In brief: LASIK permanent

Lasik corrects the prescription permanently by changing the shape of the cornea with an excimer laser.
Paragon crt molds the cornea temporarily using a flat contact lens.

In brief: Surgical vs Lens

Lasik is a surgical procedure that will permanently change the shape of your cornea to diminish its myopia, hyperopia or astigmatism.
Paragon crt is a brand of contact lenses(ortho k) worn overnight to temporarily warp your cornea and temporarily reduce myopia during the day.
