If you are looking for a safe, non-invasive option to better eyesight, you may want to consider our alternate, non-surgical visual correction surgery which is also known as the vision retainer shaping system. This is the process of utilizing retainer contact lens that corrects your overall vision while you are asleep!

You may be asking yourself, “what is the difference between lasik eye surgery, and non-surgical vision correction?” And the answer is this:

  1. Vision Retainer Shaping System is less than half the cost of a laser vision eye surgery.
  2. Good news! The non-surgical method involves zero post pain.
  3. You will not experience any hazy or blurred vision once complete.
  4. Both of your eyes can be corrected in the same visit!
  5. No use, or need for steroid or other drugs as there are with laser surgery patients.
  6. We saved the best for last! This retainer contact lens is reversible, whereas surgical correction is not!

Our team can help you determine if you are a candidate.

VRSS HELPS YOU See Without Glasses or Contacts in the Pool

If you’re tired of losing at Marco Polo every summer, or if you want the freedom to swim without fretting about losing your contacts in the water or damaging them, then we have excellent news for you!

If you don’t want to wear glasses or contact lenses to help you see, and if the very thought of LASIK makes you sweat nervously, then this solution might be right up your alley!

What is VRSS?

The Vision Retainer Shaping System (or VRSS for short) is a non-surgical vision correction system that helps you see without the use of glasses or contacts. You wear these special vision retainers only at night while you sleep to gently and gradually reshapen the front surface of your eyes, which will eliminate or reduce nearsightedness or astigmatism.

When you wake up in the morning, you will then remove the retainer system from your eyes and, guess what? You can see WITHOUT your glasses or contacts all day long!

While there is no catch, keep in mind that VRSS is only a temporary fix. It won’t PERMANENTLY fix your eyes, but it will last up to 24 to 48 hours, and it is also very soft and painless on the eyes. Additionally, VRSS is a very safe and less expensive alternative to LASIK surgery. It will also keep your eyesight from getting any worse, which is especially great for children since their prescription may not have deteriorated yet.

Regardless, VRSS is the perfect solution for those who are active, play sports, ride motorcycles, swim, or simply don’t want to wear glasses or contacts anymore!

So where can you find this amazing retainer system so you can finally start seeing where you’re swimming? Dr. Dirk Massie at Performance Eyecare is one of the few in the Metro East St. Louis area who offers this service! In fact, he is specially certified to fit retainer contact lenses, so when you visit Dr. Massie, you’ll know you’ll be in the hands of a professional.

Non-Surgical Vision Correction While You Sleep

Few things are as precious as our eyesight. When our sight is less than perfect, it reduces our quality of life by making everything more difficult. If you don’t want to wear glasses because they’re bulky on your face or you just dislike the look, and you don’t want to deal with contacts or can’t wear them, and you’re uncomfortable with the idea of having surgery on your eyes, another option to help your vision does exist.

There’s now a new technology, started in 2010, called the Vision Retainer Shaping System. This procedure provides non-surgical vision correction while you sleep. It works similar to a dental retainer, but it’s for your eyes.

The special lenses involved are only worn at night while you sleep. They gradually reshape the cornea to reduce (or even eliminate) myopia or astigmatism. The lenses are comfortable to wear and easy to care for. You’ll feel no pain, and you can wear lenses in both eyes at the same time. Take them out in the morning, and you’ll have clearer vision all day long.

The treatment is most effective on mild to moderate cases. More severe cases may still require additional vision correction. If you’re not happy with the results for any reason, this process is also completely reversible. Simply stop wearing the lenses at night, and your vision will gradually return to its original state.

Because this system doesn’t work on every cornea shape, only specially trained optometrists can evaluate your suitability for this treatment and perform the procedure. The optometrists at the Vision Centers of Performance Eyecare in St. Louis & Illinois have received the special training necessary and have the proper diagnostic equipment and expertise to perform VRSS.
