EyeDream Contact Lenses | Information for Parents

What is EyeDream? How Does it Work?

EyeDream is a vision therapy that brings a modern approach to a technique known as orthokeratology. EyeDream uses custom made contact lens to gently correct vision during sleep, providing clear, natural vision without the need to wear contact lenses or spectacles during the day.

Can EyeDream Really Slow the Progression of Short-Sightedness?

Many studies have shown that lenses like EyeDream can reduce the progression of short-sightedness, reducing the likelihood of associated problems in adulthood. The effect is not guaranteed, as results vary for individual children, but it has never been shown to make children more short-sighted.

What are the Other Key Benefits of EyeDream?

All lens wear is done overnight so the lenses aren’t worn out of the house, which means less worry about lost lenses, or spectacles! Also, daytime is free of specs and lens wear so your child can take part in all activities and sports without having to worry about their vision. Studies have shown that children may even perform better in school, if they don’t have to wear spectacles.

Are EyeDream Lenses Safe?

EyeDream lenses are CE approved in Europe and FDA approved in the US. In fact the FDA endorsed the lenses for adults and separately for children to ensure that they are safe and effective.

Do They Need to be Worn Every Night?

Yes, to get the full effect they should be worn every night.

What Happens When My Child Stops Wearing the Lenses?

Over a few days vision will gradually return to ‘normal’ (it’s original state) and they can go back to spectacles or other contact lenses.

What Happens if My Child Loses or Breaks a Lens?

Broken lenses are replaced free of charge and we include 2 free replacements, for lost lenses, per year. However, it might be worth thinking about purchasing a spare pair as it does take a few days for replacements to arrive.
