The new alternative to laser surgery

Overnight vision correction (OVC) is the new alternative to laser eye surgery which gives you the benefits of laser eye surgery without the risks. Specially designed overnight contact lenses worn only while sleeping, correct your vision while you sleep, freeing you from glasses or contact lenses during the day, 

In short-sighted people the eye ball is slightly too long causing light to focus incorrectly in front of the retina resulting in distant images appearing blurred. Laser eye surgery corrects this by surgically removing a layer of the cornea to shorten the focal length.

The benefit of OVC it that it is non-surgical as the eyes are gently moulded into the correct shape by the overnight contact lenses.

Before you can have laser eye surgery you need to be at least twenty one years old and have had a stable prescription for the previous two years. There is no such restriction with OVC, overnight contact lenses can be worn by children as young as six.

Laser eye surgery is not ideal for people with dry eyes as it can exacerbate the problem. However, as overnight contact lenses are only worn at night, they suit people who suffer from dry eyes  because the eyes can freely lubricate all day without any contacts getting in the way, 

Whilst laser eye surgery restores vision the mechanism of myopia continues. For this reason, it is not uncommon for the surgery to need to be repeated, The younger you are when you have surgery, the more likely it is that it will need to be repeated in the future. However, there is now a large body of independent research to support the use of overnight contact lenses to halt the progression of myopia using a technique called myopia control.
