Did you know there’s a simple, revolutionary technology available to help correct mild to moderate short-sightedness (myopia) while you sleep?!
Light enters our corneas (the transparent outer layer at the front of the eye), which is then focussed on the retina at the back of the eye. In short-sightedness, the eye becomes longer, so light no longer focusses correctly, creating blurred vision.
Glasses and regular contact lenses help refocus light correctly. But lenses can cause irritation and glasses can become a nuisance, particularly when playing sports.
But there is another solution… EyeDream lenses!
What is EyeDream?
EyeDream, which is a form of orthokeratology (ortho-k), are custom-made lenses worn overnight. Through gentle pressure, the cornea's curvature is reshaped to give a slightly flatter profile, realigning the focal point to the back of the retina. All while you sleep… WOW!
Are they safe?
They’re incredibly safe! You wear the highly breathable lenses overnight and wake with clear, natural, comfortable vision. All day!
Can children wear EyeDream lenses?
Absolutely! Studies have shown that ortho-K lenses, such as EyeDream, can also slow down the advancement of myopia in children. This is excellent news as it reduces the risk of developing associated problems in later life, such as glaucoma (increased pressure in the eye leading to damage of the optic nerve).
Are they expensive?
The cost of EyeDream lenses is equivalent to wearing a pair of quality, daily disposable contact lenses. When you factor in the convenience and ease of use, they’re a fantastic alternative to laser surgery, daily contact lenses or glasses.
How long do they last?
We advise wearers to replace their EyeDream lenses every six months to ensure they continue doing their job and provide optimum vision improvement.
