The technique is called orthokeratology and the lenses are made from a special, highly oxygen permeable material. When worn ovenight they apply a controlled shape to the cornea (the front of the eye) which effectively eliminates shot-sightedness during the next day. This approach has been used in Europe for over 10 years and is now available to you!
To start the process, one of our qualified optometrists uses a corneal topographer to map the exact contours of the eye. We then use this data along with the latest precision technology to produce individually tailored nocturnal lenses which are customised to suit your exact needs.
Four initial appointments are required to ensure the quality of your vision, and the health of your eyes, after which a regular checkup is scheduled at similar intervals to those for normal contact lens users.
Absolutely not. Nocturnal lenses are specifically designed for the shape of your eye and you are not aware of them as you sleep.
A: Your vision with Nocturnals is great whether you are wearing them or not.
A: Another benefit of Nocturnals is that the procedure is totally reversible. If you don’t like them, you simply stop wearing them and your eyes will return to normal.
A: If you miss one night, you will still be able to see the following day. In fact, some users find they only need to wear them every second or third night
