A new option for the near-sighted

Apparently there are now contacts that you can wear at night and they reshape your cornea to correct the curvature (so you can go without during the day). Sort of like a temporary version of keratotomy/LASIK. Very intriguing. Do you think that things gradually go out of focus during the evening, or that it "holds" until the next reshaping? Anyway, looks like my correction is too severe to make me a good candidate, so I can ignore the allusions to high cost. But it might be a good option for those who'd like to avoid surgery but would like another option than glasses or everyday lenses...
