If you thought that you could only correct your vision by wearing contact lenses during the day think again.
Orthokeratology allows correction of up to -4.50 diopters of myopia (short-sightedness) by wearing a specially designed contact lens overnight and removing it once awake. Yes you read it right REMOVE the lens on waking. The contact lens temporarily redistributes the outer surface cells of the cornea therefore correcting vision so you to see with total freedom from contact lenses and spectacles.
Orthokeratology is also thought to help reduce myopia progression, so for children it not only gives them freedom from spectacles and contact lenses, it also helps to reduce the rate of deterioration.
