As myopia continues to reach alarming numbers, eye specialists are creating new management approaches. Orthokeratology is a myopia control treatment that involves overnight-wear contact lenses.
Since the first contact lens for vision correction was invented in the late 1800s, much has changed. The first lenses were made of glass, were heavy, and covered the whole eye surface. Later, they became smaller, lighter, and only covered the front of the eye. After that came the new softer materials that gave rise to soft contact lenses.
