Night Lenses : Orthokeratology
Night Lenses are also known as Orthokeratology or Ortho-K and are special contact lenses that are worn overnight, which are used to correct myopia without the need for laser eye surgery. Night lenses have also been shown to slow the rate of progression of myopia. They are specially designed to harmlessly, and naturally, re-shape the outer cell layer of your eye. Your eye naturally renews these cells every night into the lens to mould it into the correct shape. This means that when you wake up, you can enjoy all the benefits of perfect vision* throughout the day, without the need for daytime contact lenses or spectacles.
*Reverses after 24 hours. Repeat nightly.
The lenses are only for those with a short-sightedness (myopia) of less than -5.00D.

Night Lenses are the latest innovation that everyone’s talking about! A life changing contact lens worn overnight that gives you freedom from glasses, day lenses & laser surgery. Open your eyes underwater, ditch sports glasses, go onto the beach and into the sea without hassle, watch teenage confidence grow and lives transformed. They also halt myopia progression in children - deteriorating short sight linked to eye disease later on in life.
