Vision Correction While You Sleep
What if your vision could be corrected while you sleep? No more smudged lenses, no more irritating contact lenses. While this concept may seem too good to be true, there is in fact a non-surgical method to correct your vision called Gentle Molding™, and it’s as easy as putting in a pair of contacts every night.
How Gentle Molding™ Works
The Gentle Molding method, also known as Ortho-K, works to gradually reshape the eye through the use of therapeutic lenses. These unique corneal molds are specially designed for each patient. When worn overnight, they gently mold the cornea in a way that changes the way light enters the eye, helping it focus better to improve the patient’s vision. Comprised mostly of water, the cornea is malleable and easy to shape, so there is no pain or discomfort as the molding takes place. While many people see positive changes after the first night, the full impact of the visual improvements can be felt in just a few short months, or even weeks!
Does Gentle Molding™ Work for Everybody?
Most people who have bad eyesight due to hyperopia (farsightedness), myopia (nearsightedness) or astigmatism assume that they only have two options: corrective lenses or refractive surgery. Imagine their relief when they learn that the Gentle Molding procedure can give them freedom from both while also improving their vision!
While Gentle Molding can work for adults as well as children, it is most effective on children and teenagers, and can help prevent the progression of myopia throughout their formative years.
