Ortho K Contact Lenses
Introducing EyeDream Contact lenses…
Imagine a solution that bettered your sight and provided clear, comfortable vision without the need to wear spectacles or contact lenses during the day. EyeDream does just that!
This new concept brings a unique, modern approach to an already well-established technique known as orthokeratology. No more restrictions on how long you wear your lenses, no more irritation from air-conditioned or smoky environments and the freedom to be as active as you want.
So, how does it work?
Through overnight vision correction. It is a specially designed contact lens that reduces the power of the cornea (at the front of the eye) by wearing it overnight. You apply your EyeDream contact lenses before you go to bed, remove them when you wake up, leaving you with clear natural vision all day.
Who is EyeDream suitable for?
Eyedream utilises an established lens design that has been available in Europe since 2002. It boast thousands of happy patients and is able to correct the following degrees of shortsightedness:
- A spherical spectacle prescription of -0.75D up to -5.00D
- Astigmatism of up to -2.50D
Orthokeratology for Children
Many studies have shown that ortho K lenses cab slow the progression of shortsightedness in children and reduce the likelihood of developing associated problems in adulthood.
The effect is not guaranteed, as results vary for individual children, however, it has never been known to make youngsters more shortsighted.
Beyond the obvious health benefits, EyeDReam can be financially rewarding for parents, as spectacles need to be changed less frequently. Also, as daytime is free of spectacles and lens wear, children can take part in all activities and sports without having to worry about their vision – and as the lenses aren’t worn out of the house there is less worry about losing them!
Frequently asked questions:
Can I really just sleep and see?
Yes, once the effect is complete you simply remove the lenses each morning and you can see normally throughout that day. Also – and this is really clever – you will be able to see clearly with lenses in, when you wake up in the morning (or in the middle of the night). it really is a clear future 24/7!
How quickly will it work?
After the first night most of the necessary correction has been achieved. Normally, within a week, your sight during the day will be ”treated” and you will no longer be reliant on glasses or contact lenses.
Is it safe?
Yes. Research and experience show that the whole process is 100% reversible. So if you decide to stop wearing the lenses for whatever reason, the eye will return to its original shape and you will see clearly with your glasses again. This makes Eyedream an excellent alternative to laser eye surgery.
How is it possible to wear lenses overnight?
Eyedream lenses are made of one of the very highest oxygen permeable materials for maximum comfort and safety during overnight wear. The other unique benefit with EyeDream is that unlike normal lens wear the eye spends its waking hours with natural oxygen levels, uninhibited by contact lenses.
