Novelty Contact Lenses - Know the Risks

At this time of year, we get many people asking about novelty contact lenses. With lots of Halloween parties and events going on, it's a popular accessory, but there are true-to-life horrors that come with it...

Contact Lenses

Believe it or not, contact lenses have been around for well over 100 years. Previously only available as rigid lenses, soft contact lenses became available more recently and quickly became the preferred choice. If you've been considering contact lenses but have been unsure of the benefits, the facts or the risks - look no further as we explain everything to you. We have more information across our Social Media platforms all week too!

'Smart' Contact Lenses - the future gets closer!

Alcon is the eye care division of Novartis - a Swiss Pharmaceutical company who have just signed a deal with Google to license their new 'Smart Contact Lens' technology.

Contact Lenses for Children

Did you know that almost one in five children aged 5-15 years, rising to almost one in three 16-19 year olds need vision correction yet only about one in twelve of those who could wear contact lenses currently do so. Many more children and teens would potentially benefit from contact lenses.

Overnight Vision Correction

Laser eye surgery is a daunting prospect to say the least. Not many would like the idea of a laser being used to cut a very thin flap in your cornea which is peeled back for further lasering underneath. There are risks involved too.

The alternative to laser eye surgery

Laser surgery is not the only option

Picture a solution that improves your eyesight and provides clear and comfortable vision without the need for spectacles or contact lenses during the day. EyeDream does exactly that! This new concept brings a unique, modern approach to an already well-established technique known as orthokeratology. No more restrictions on how long you wear your lenses, no more irritation from smoky environments and the freedom to be as active as you want. How does that sound?

How does EyeDream work?

Simply put, it works through overnight vision correction. It is a specially designed contact lens that reduces the power of the cornea (at the front of the eye) by wearing it overnight. You put your EyeDream lenses in before you go to bed, take them out when you wake up, leaving you with clear natural vision all day.

Lenses in, lenses out, natural vision

EyeDream is an ideal solution for low to mid shortsighted people who:

  • Would like clear and natural vision all day, every day
  • Find that soft contact lenses aren't comfortable enough for their lifestyle
  • Are involved in recreational and sports activities where periods without wearing contact lenses and glasses is ideal
  • Have considered laser surgery because of the freedom it provides, but are worried about the potential risks involved
  • EyeDream is suited to those with a spherical spectacle prescription of -0.75D up to -5.00D or astigmatism of up to -2.50D
