If you’re not keen on the idea of laser eye surgery, Nocturnal and Orthokeratology contact lenses could be just right for you! These specialist contact lenses are only worn when you sleep, correcting your short sight by gently changing the shape of your eye without the need for surgery.
The purpose of these revolutionary lenses is to provide improved vision throughout the day without having to wear spectacles or contact lenses. That’s right, no more eye discomfort or dryness! They are also a great solution for people participating in water sports as you won't need to wear lenses underwater.

Patients as young as 16 years old can benefit from Nocturnal lenses. These lenses can be worn if you have tired or dry eyes and work well with mono-vision, enabling you to see both long and short distances.
Nocturnal lenses offer the same vision correction as laser eye surgery with freedom from spectacles. They are individually designed especially for your eyes.
Will I Be Able to See If I Get up in the Night?
Yes, you will see clearly with the lenses in and you’ll have improved vision when your eyes are open!
Are Nocturnal - Orthokeratology Lenses Painful?
No! The technology used to design the gas permeable lenses ensures they are a great fit and that you won’t be aware of them during the night.
Can I Wear Them with Tired or Dry Eyes?
Not only does Nocturnal provide visual freedom, but it also provides comfort as well. With no contact lenses during the day, your eyes can breathe and moisten themselves naturally. This improves comfort and even some allergies.
What If I Forget to Wear Them One Night?
You will still be able to see the next day but you may notice your vision changing that evening. Some people only need to wear their lenses every second night.
What Happens If Nocturnal Doesn’t Work for Me?
The effects are reversible. Simply stop wearing the lenses and your eyes will return to normal.
Can the Correction Wear off When I Am Driving in the Evening?
Your vision is very stable with Nocturnal. It will never wear off quickly enough to be a danger.
Is Nocturnal Suitable for Everyone?
Only short sight (-4.50 or less) and low astigmatism can be corrected fully with Nocturnal.
