Night Lenses

Night lenses are custom fit lenses that you pop in at bedtime, your sight is corrected naturally while you sleep, wake to perfect 20/20 vision, remove, have a normal day without needing daytime lenses, glasses or laser surgery. The effect lasts 24 hours so repeat every night as part of your routine like brushing your teeth. And yes, they can also stabilise myopia (short sight) in children, which is linked to long term eye disease. It's the 'sounds too good to be true' innovation that everyone is talking about. Join the #nightlenses revolution....

How Do Night Lenses Work?

The process is called Orthokeratology, so medically these are known as 'Ortho-K' lenses. Myopia (short-sight) makes the eye more like an oval rugby ball, not a round ball. So the light focuses in the wrong place, causing blur. Every night your cornea (outer layer of your eyeball) naturally sheds it’s outer layer of cells. While you sleep the new cells form into the mould of your custom fit night lens, creating a ‘round’ eye that focuses perfectly. Remove the lenses in the morning to clear sight. No need for glasses, daytime lenses or laser eye surgery. The process is harmless and reverses

every night – simply repeat every night as part of your routine just as you would with daytime lenses.
