Bausch + Lomb Vision Shaping Treatment (VST) is an innovative process that effectively treats nearsightedness and mild astigmatism. VST uses customized shaping lenses to gently correct your vision while you sleep so you can enjoy clear vision during the day without glasses or contact lenses.
Dr. Gambino will prescribe shaping lenses that are custom-fitted to the specific contour of your eyes. Every night, these shaping lenses gently reshape your eye to correct your vision while you sleep. They correct nearsightedness by reshaping the surface of the eye so that light focuses properly on the retina, instead of in front of it. In the morning, you take out your vision shaping lenses and enjoy clear vision without glasses or contact lenses.
Note: To maintain the effect of myopia reduction, overnight lens wear must be continued on a prescribed schedule. Failure to do so can affect daily activities (e.g., night driving), visual fluctuations and changes in intended correction.
Bausch + Lomb VST may be a suitable option for people with lifestyles where glasses and contact lenses can be problematic:
