Adverse corneal events associated with corneal reshaping: a case series.

Eye & Contact Lens 2004 October
PURPOSE: This case series presents the first documented cases of infectious ulcers associated with overnight orthokeratology in North America and other less serious complications associated with overnight corneal reshaping.
