    I have been on accelerated ortho-k for about 7 months now and have gone
    from -1.75 in both eyes to slighty overcorrected in both eyes with 20/10

    At first I had some ghosting in dim lights and halos but that has completely
    gone now and it is as though I have normal eyes again.

    Just pop the lens every night expect sunday where I have a day off and its
    normal eyesight again.

    Dear "Crippler",

    Excellent report. I know of quite a few pilots
    who do this (but do not report it) to obtain/sustain
    20/20 vision for flight. It indeed works well.

    As I understand it, you must continue to
    wear a "retainer" lens to maintain your
    20/20 vision. Is that correct.

    Also, do they supply a "retainer" you can
    sleep in -- so you do not have to wear the
    contact lens in the day time?

    Thanks for your report.

    If they are professionals (airline-pilots or army flyers) who have to report
    they better do.
    It is very easy to detect and when they have the responsibility to report, I
    asume they fly right out of there jobs if they don't
    Why, because if they lose a lens and have no equal spare they are in
    trouble, a replacement pair of glasses does not work for the first hours or
    even days.
    Under normal circumstances you have to wear this lens at sleeping time to
    achieve some (de)formation of the cornea.
    When you are awake you take the lens out.
    If , at the end of the day the loss of vision aquity is to high, there is a
    possibility to put in your lens and able to see just fine.
    Most of the time the lens is calculated for using it that way if necessary.

    this is the new accelerated one I am doing

    worn the same single pair of lenses since day 1.
    If I forget to put the lens in one night I can still see preety clearly the
    next day and even drive. But still the quality is much better in long
    distances if I wear the lens every night when i sleep.

    Sometimes I have a day off if I want to sleep in and dont plan on going out
    the next day.
