EyeDream of…A NEW DAWN FOR VISION CORRECTION

EyeDream is a vision therapy that brings a modern approach to a technique also known as orthokeratology. EyeDream lenses are manufactured from special highly oxygen permeable material. When worn during the night these lenses apply a controlled shape to the ‘window’ of the eye, the cornea, eliminating your short sightedness. This effect stays strong enough for you to function the entire day without spectacles or contact lenses.

Unlike laser surgery, EyeDream is fully reversible. If you find the treatment does not work, you can revert to glasses or conventional contact lenses without having made any permanent changes. There is also evidence that the lenses may slow down the progression of myopia in those whose vision would otherwise get steadily worse.

EyeDream utilises a tried and tested lens design that has been available in Europe since 2002 and currently boasts thousands of happy patients. EyeDream is available to patients with a spectacle prescription of -0.75D to -4.50D.

TOPOGRAPHY AND ORTHO-K

A topographer is an instrument that measures the curvature of the cornea and maps the cornea in detail. Measurements of the corneal curvature is useful for fitting contact lenses and conditions such as keratoconus can be confidently diagnosed and managed with special contact lenses.

Topography at Radlett Opticians has become the mainstay for fitting Ortho-K contact lenses. Ortho keratology is a process whereby the cornea is reshaped to allow patients to be able to see clearly in the day time without the aid of spectacles or contact lenses. They also stop the elongation of the eye and retinal thinning which a common problem in Myopia progression. It could be argued that ortho-K lenses may in the long run prevent retinal tears and detachment occurring in myopic patients.This technique has been embraced by the practice over the past 7 years and a huge proportion of patients young and old have benefitted from spectacles and contact lens freedom in the daytime allowing them to participate in swimming and sports activity unaided. It is thought of as laser surgery but reversible reshaping of the eyes particularly in children who cannot have laser surgery and whose myopia progresses rapidly during the natural growth spurt.

Proportion of patients suffer from dry eyes and cannot wear contact lenses in the daytime with comfort and we have helped these patients with the overnight Ortho-K lenses which are now also
called Eyedream lenses.
