The term “night lenses” refers to orthokeratology lenses. Orthokeratology or “correction through corneal reshaping” is a principle that allows clear vision throughout the day without wearing contact lenses or glasses, thanks to lenses that are worn during the night.
A proven technology for over 20 years, orthokeratology has benefited in recent years from major innovations in both lens designs and materials. This technique is considered, among other things, as an effective solution to reduce myopia.
Safe and painless, adaptation to night lenses also has the advantage of being non-invasive and completely reversible: wearers can stop using them at any time and choose another correction mode.
DRL® night lenses, for which visual disorders?
From myopia control to presbyopia, the DRL® night lens range has an innovative geometry and unique technicality that allows for personalized treatment for each wearer. It corrects the main visual disorders:
NB : Night lenses are medical devices whose adaptation must be prescribed by an ophthalmologist.
Made to measure, DRL® night lenses have been specifically designed to be worn at night and are made of a high permeability material which enables a good level of oxygenation for the eye.
No. These lenses are made to measure and perfectly respect the physiology of your cornea. Of course it is imperative to strictly adhere to the hygiene rules (handwashing before inserting and removing, and daily care) which are necessary for safe wearing and renew your lenses every year. Studies have proved that there is less infection risk from wearing night lenses than from wearing day lenses.
Clear vision during the day will last for almost 16 hours. It is of course necessary to wear your lenses every night to maintain the same quality of vision every day, because when you stop treatment, the cornea returns to its original shape after 24 to 48 hours and vision deteriorates.
Yes. A satisfactory result can be achieved in one week for myopic patients, and in up to 15 days for hyperopic patients. This can vary from one wearer to another. In any case, you must follow your ophthalmologist’s advice.
I am more than happy with my night lenses - I couldn’t tolerate either soft or rigid contact lenses, because they became uncomfortable after only a short time of wearing them. As I travel by scooter, no longer having to wear glasses under the helmet is very convenient, not to mention the fact that I’m also a keen runner, go swimming several times a week and ride horses, so not having to have anything on my eyes any more is a real freedom for me!
“I’ve been wearing night lenses for over a year now, and in practical terms, I never have to think about it. I put them in in the evening after brushing my teeth and take them out 20 minutes after I get up. In the beginning it was a bit strange, because after putting them in I could feel them when I blinked, but after 2 weeks I felt nothing at all! What I particularly like, is being able to do sports, swim with my eyes open and go out in the evening… It seems like this is a product that users and professionals are still not very aware of yet: but it’s clearly a solution that we should be interested in!”
“I’ve been wearing night lenses for a year. Before that, I wore glasses with progressive lenses (I have hyperopia and early-stage presbyopia). This is a revolutionary correction system. My lenses are very comfortable and don’t prevent me from sleeping. After taking out my lenses in the morning, I can see clearly… and at all distances! I can read, work on the computer, or drive, without any constraints! And on holiday it’s brilliant to be able to do sports in complete freedom. Thank you to my health professional for suggesting this miracle solution to me!”
