    I fitted her with Focus Night & Day lenses 8.6/13.8 - Right dominant
    for distance with +1.25D and Left +3.75D, for near. She was rapt with
    the results and wore them successfully for up to 30N EW, for a few
    weeks. After being ill and not wearing the lenses for around two months
    she came in within a month or two of resuming wear complaining of
    reduced vision, particularly at near. She reported she was struggling
    to read the paper and do other fine near visual tasks. Measurements
    revealed that she needed more plus in the left eye [around +1.00D more]
    and refraction confirmed a hyperopic shift of a similar order. Sure
    enough K readings confirmed that indeed her cornea had flattened around
    1.00D

    My comments: Whoa! Nice find! The highest plus for focus day and night
    is +6 which is plenty, enough for a reduction of 1.5 to 2 diopters of
    myopia! I guess this could be "poor man's" orthoK

    One challenge is the person inverting the contacts inside out, sleeping
    in them then waking up will see very blurry till the lenses are
    removed. But the improvement in vision is amazing! Low myopes less than
    -3 may greatly reduce, if not eliminate their dependacy on glasses
    while more moderate myopes of -3 to -5 will experience a significent
    improve in UCVA and a reduction in glasses dependacy.

    Dicky would be proud of you Ace. This expose along with
    the home LASIK kit will reduce any vision care cost by
    orders of magnitude.

    Im supprised none of you guys and optometrists have heard of it! It
    will be revolutionary for most low(er) myopes with little or no
    astigmatism!

    Home lasik is a hoax. A trained surgeon needs to operate the laser, not
    some noob doing it himself at home. Its impossible to give yourself
    lasik as you wouldnt see what you were doing either. I doubt anyone has
    even attempted RK on themselves!
    OrthoK is a reality and far safer than any refractive surgury, you
    havent read the article!

    No. I saw it on the internet. They had pictures of the kit
    and more pictures of someone giving themself LASIK.
    How do you explain that? It must be true! You're just
    one of all those others trying to keep up the ridiculous
    cost of these simple procedures that you can do yourself.

    Alot of people could be benefitting from this simple way of orthoK! All
    it takes is a prescription of +6 lens and you can make history about
    -1.5 diopters of your myopia! Will greatly reduce glasses dependency
    for low myopes less than -3. Will still benefit those up to -5. RGP
    orthoK can make history much higher amounts of myopia.

    Apparently it is possible to post more retarded crap on a continuing
    basis.
