Eye & Contact Lens: Science and Clinical Practice - Abstract: Volume 34(2) March 2008 p 94-99 Long-term Clinical Outcomes for Overnight Corneal Reshaping in Children and Adults.

In this study only 3 of the 296 patients undergoing corneal reshaping therapy had adverse events, but these events did not result in loss of BCVA. It concludes:

"Overnight Corneal Reshaping resulted in comparable safety and efficacy in temporarily reducing myopia for children younger than 12 years as it is for children older than 12 years and adults."
