ortho keratology is not yet an established  prcedure. in it especially  designed gpo lensfor temporary use which  is claimed to reshape the corneal  topography  thus bringing out temporary  relief  ie improvement of vision  there by decreasing the need of specs .but I will not advocate  it .better you  go for  extended wear soft contact lens.
