Nocturnal Contacts

Over 40 years ago, opticians discovered that it was possible to use contact lenses to reshape the cornea and correct the eyes resolving power. Unfortunately, back then, there were only the old-fashioned hard contact lenses, which meant that it was impossible to provide an individual solution without using a series of contact lenses. This made the process too inconvenient to be put to widespread use.

The arrival of precision technology and gas permeable lenses, however, means we are now able to engineer advanced individual lenses that gently correct your eyesight as you sleep.

Nocturnal lenses provide the desired result literally overnight so that you can see clearly without the blind spots caused by or lens edges.

The fitting of nocturnal follows a similar procedure to conventional contact lenses. A corneal topographer is used to map the exact contours of the eye using thousands of points of reference. This data is then used to produce individually tailored lenses to suit your precise needs. The topographer is also used to check the eye and changes can be made to the shape of the lenses if required.

Recent studies show that the changes on the cornea caused with Nocturnal™ lenses may actually reduce short sight progression, making them an optimum correction for children.
