In brief: Eye vision option

Use of hard, gas-permeable contact lenses worn at night to "reshape" the cornea for people who don't want/need to wear regular contact lenses.
Usually for lessor corrective requirements and much be done daily (night).

In brief: Eye reshaping

Firm oxygen permeable lenses specifically designed to reshape the corneal surface are worn only during sleep.
These can markedly reduce myopia (nearsightedness) and some astygmatism as well.

In brief: Non-surgical vision

Orthokeratology refers to using rigid contact lenses (that are permeable to air) at night to "reshape" the cornea leading to corrected vision.
