Starting to need reading glasses?

Being fitted with Nocturnal contact lenses is very similar to conventional lenses. Your optometrist uses a corneal topographer to take a scan of the eye which is then used to individually design your contact lenses. Over a few appointments, your optometrist will complete the fitting process, including showing you how to look after your lenses. After your first night your vision will already be partly corrected. Over the next few days it will keep getting better and better. After the first week your vision will be fully corrected and stable all day long. You will visit your optometrist three or four times to be fitted with Nocturnal and then every 6 months for check-ups. You will receive new lenses every year.

Nocturnal lenses are available from our Gordon St, Glasgow and Frederick St, Edinburgh practices.
