Gentle Vision Shaping System (GVSS) not only offers freedom from glasses, it can enhance the lifestyle of those requiring vision correction without the use of any surgery.
Up to 25% of the US population has some severity of myopia, a refractive error that effects the eye’s ability to focus on images clearly. Myopia is most often found in children between ages 8 and 12 and develops rapidly through the teenage years. Gentle Vision Shaping System is a practical solution to myopia, it can slow myopia progression by 50%.

GVSS vs LASIK
While many have heard of laser eye surgery or LASIK, some may find the procedure too risky. Laser eye surgery for instance is irreversible; GVSS is both non-surgical and reversible.
LASIK has also been shown to increase dry eye syndrome; GVSS does not. Patients who also take various prescriptions can also be at risk of side-affects with laser eye surgery; GVSS is not affected by prescriptions. GVSS has also been shown to slow down the progression of myopia, or nearsightedness.
Lastly, if your cornea is too thin for Lasik then GVSS may be a great way to be free of glasses and contact during all waking hours.
Some more reasons to consider GVSS instead of LASIK
- It stops or slows down the progression of myopia
- Inconvenienced by daytime contacts or glasses
- Children may be too young for LASIK
- Soft contacts can be irritating
With the Gentle Vision Shaping System, a device is used to gently mold/reshape the cornea (the clear tissue on the front of the eye), similar to the way a laser reshapes the cornea. Unlike a laser, however, GVSS is done non-surgically while you are asleep.
