Zoomed In: EyeDream Orthokeratology
EyeDream, a form of orthokeratology (ortho-k), corrects your vision while you sleep. Simply remove the custom contact lenses upon waking and enjoy a world of clear, natural vision throughout the day.
EyeDream is non-invasive, safe, effective and has transformed the lives of thousands of people across the world.
EyeDream is ideal for patients who want clear natural vision all day without the need for specs or lenses, are involved in sports but find specs and contact lenses restrictive, are soft contact lens wearers but suffer from discomfort or dry, scratchy eyes or have considered laser surgery but are concerned with the associated risks.
The cornea plays a key role in creating a sharp optical focus. EyeDream – advanced ortho-k lenses – gently reshape the curvature of the cornea overnight, creating a slightly flatter profile. Upon waking, the slight change (less than half the width of a human hair) in cornea curvature is enough to create clear, sharp vision for the duration of the day.
EyeDream uses a tried-and-tested design and is only ever prescribed by our trained optometrists.
EyeDream is only suitable for people who are short-sighted (myopic) and will only correct up to a specific amount of this. Please ask your optometrist if your prescription is suitable.
EyeDream for children
There is, as yet, no cure for myopia. The physical change of the elongated eyeball cannot be reversed (even laser-eye surgery can’t do this). People with myopia have an increased chance of developing serious eye conditions, such as glaucoma and retinal detachment in later life. The higher the myopia the greater the risk.
The aim of Myopia Control is to slow down, or halt, the progression of myopia, and this is becoming increasingly effective, especially in children and teenagers.
Orthokeratology lenses, such as EyeDream, are playing a key role in Myopia Control all over the world. Recent studies have indicated that myopia develops at a much slower rate, and can even be halted in children fitted with ortho-k. The results vary for each individual child, but most experts maintain that these lenses are the best option available for children suffering from myopia.
Additionally, EyeDream offers children the freedom and confidence to swim, play sports and enjoy an active lifestyle without the restrictions of specs or contact lenses. Also, lenses are worn at night and at home so lens wear & care can be monitored – And, no more lost specs and contacts!
