Sleep Shaping Vision Correction

Gentle Vision Shaping System or GVSS is similar, in concept, to a dental retainer that is worn overnight to straighten teeth, except in this situation it's a specially designed contact lens that gently and gradually reshapes your cornea to correct farsightedness, nearsightedness, or astigmatism. This means that patients wear the GVSS lenses only while they are sleeping, and then their vision remains corrected throughout the day without corrective lenses. GVSS allows you to see clearly throughout the day without contact lenses, eyeglasses, or laser eye surgery. It has also been shown to slow and potentially stop the progression of nearsightedness in children.
