Dr. Richard Bensinger answered

Specializes in Ophthalmology

Night time treatment: These are lenses used in moderate amounts of myopia to remold the cornea which reduces the myopia. The lenses used are slightly uncomfortable but the effect is useful. However to maintain the remolded shape, a night time lens is required for extended periods . It is sort of trading the ordinary wearing of a contact lens during the day for a "keeper" at night.
