PURPOSE To investigate corneal thickness changes during overnight orthokeratology with reverse-geometry rigid gas-permeable (RGP) contact lenses worn over a 3-month period. METHODS Eighteen young adult subjects with low myopia (<or=4.00 D) were fitted with reverse-geometry lenses (BE; UltraVision Pty.
