Since the sixties it has been known that wearing special design rigid contact lenses can cause the cornea to change its shape and reduce nearsighted corrections. New technologies over the last 15 years has refined this process and allowed for substantially improved and more predictable results including wearing lenses overnight and removing them during the daytime!

Gas permeable contact lenses Gas permeable lenses provide unique benefits that make them the lens of choice for bifocal wearers, damaged corneas, keratoconus and other corneal distortions. They often provide the most stable vision for astigmatism. Corneal reshaping ( orthokeratology ) can often reduce or eliminate refractive errors including myopia and astigmatism. There are lenses designed to be worn overnight so that you can go without contacts during the day. There are even studies documenting that children and teens wearing gas permeable contacts are much less likely to go through the normal progressive increases in myopia that is otherwise so common.
