“You don’t have to just watch your child continue to become more nearsighted.”
– Dr. Dwight Barnes
What is Overnight Sight?
Overnight Sight is an FDA-approved vision treatment that delivers clear, comfortable vision without glasses, daytime contact lenses or surgery. Before going to bed, Overnight Sight patients put on custom therapeutic corneal molds that correct their blurry vision while they sleep by gently reshaping the surface of their eyes. Once they wake up, they remove the molds and enjoy a full day of clarity. You can think of Overnight Sight like an orthodontic retainer for your eyes.
The ideal candidate for Overnight Sight is a nearsighted patient, with or without low to moderate amounts of astigmatism. Children who are nearsighted typically become more nearsighted over time. While myopia (nearsightedness) can be corrected with glasses or contact lenses, high myopia increases the risk of many eye diseases including cataracts glaucoma, and retinal detachment. Overnight Sight slows down the progression of nearsightedness leading to smaller prescriptions and healthier eyes.
Overnight Sight is an FDA-approved therapy for all ages that is non-invasive, non-surgical, safe and effective.
What are the benefits?
- Freedom from glasses and daytime contact lenses. If you currently rely on these devices, then you are familiar with the expense, inconvenience and discomfort they bring. Overnight Sight is especially liberating for people who enjoy playing sports, the outdoors and other active hobbies. No need to worry about losing glasses or contact lenses drying out.
- No surgery required. Unlike LASIK, Overnight Sight is non-invasive, reversible and does not interfere with integrity of the surface of the eyes. Also, it is less costly than laser refractive surgery.
- The opportunity to save your vision. Nearsightedness is a condition that worsens over time. Overnight Sight has been proven to slow down that progression. We believe every nearsighted child should be given the opportunity to slow or stop the progression of myopia.
