The Gentle Vision Shaping System (GVSS), also known as orthokeratology, is a non-invasive procedure that involves the use of specialized corneal molds. These molds are designed to reshape the cornea at night while the patient sleeps and act as “retainers” once the cornea has been reshaped. Each morning the corneal molds are removed and our GVSS patients have no need to wear any glasses or contacts throughout the day. Most importantly, GVSS has been shown to greatly slow down or completely halt the worsening of myopia (nearsightedness).
Both Dr. Sirgany and Dr. Howard are certified to perform orthokeratology/GVSS.
The ideal candidate for GVSS is a young nearsighted individual who has had an increase in myopia.
