Vision Shaping Treatment (VST)

GP Lenses

Bausch + Lomb Vision Shaping Treatment (VST) is an innovative process that effectively treats nearsightedness and mild astigmatism. VST uses customized shaping lenses to gently correct your vision while you sleep so you can enjoy clear vision during the day without glasses or contact lenses.

How Does It Work?

Your eye care professional will prescribe shaping lenses that are custom-fitted to the specific contour of your eyes. Every night, these shaping lenses gently reshape your eye to correct your vision while you sleep. They correct nearsightedness by reshaping the surface of the eye so that light focuses properly on the retina, instead of in front of it. In the morning, you take out your vision shaping lenses and enjoy clear vision without glasses or contact lenses.

Note: To maintain the effect of myopia reduction, overnight lens wear must be continued on a prescribed schedule. Failure to do so can affect daily activities (e.g., night driving), visual fluctuations and changes in intended correction.

Are You A Good Candidate For VST?

Bausch + Lomb VST may be a suitable option for people with lifestyles where glasses and contact lenses can be problematic:


  • Athletes and others with active lifestyles
  • Those with professions that require hassle-free visual freedom
  • People who aren't ready for or who aren't candidates for LASIK surgery.

Ask your eye care professional if they are right for you.

Important Safety Information about Bausch + Lomb Vision Shaping Treatment (VST) (Extended Wear)

The risk of microbial keratitis and other potentially vision-threatening adverse events has been shown to be greater among users of extended wear contact lenses than among users of daily wear contact lenses. If a patient experiences eye discomfort, excessive tearing, vision changes, or redness of the eye, the patient should be instructed to immediately remove the lenses and promptly contact his or her eye care practitioner.
