Abiliti Overnight Lenses

ACUVUE® Abiliti™ Overnight Lenses Now Available at TSO Briargrove

Did you know there are options for treating myopia in both children and adults? Myopia was previously thought of as just nearsightedness, but we now know it is a chronic and progressive disease1-3 that poses the biggest eye health threat of the 21st century.4

Our practice is proud to now offer ACUVUE® Abiliti™ Overnight Therapeutic Lenses for Myopia Management.

What are Abiliti™ Overnight lenses?
Abiliti™ Overnight lenses are FDA-approved orthokeratology (ortho-k) contact lenses for myopia management.*5 These lenses provide clear vision during the day without the need for glasses or other contact lenses.

How do they work?
Abiliti™ Overnight lenses temporarily reshape the cornea when worn to bed every night. After removing the lenses in the morning, wearers can enjoy clear vision the entire day without the need for glasses or other contact lenses.**5 Abiliti™ Overnight lenses are specifically designed and fitted to match a patient’s eye based on its unique corneal shape and prescription.6

Are they safe to use?
Ortho-k lenses have been successfully used for managing myopia in thousands of children and adults for over 15 years.6 Clinical studies have demonstrated that Abiliti™ Overnight lenses are a safe and effective option to manage myopia.7 In three studies accounting for over 200 patient‐years of wear, no serious adverse events were found with Abiliti™ Overnight lenses.8

What are the benefits of Abiliti™ Overnight lenses?
Children wearing Abiliti™ Overnight lenses report better rates of overall vision, far distance vision, symptoms, appearance, satisfaction, academic performance, handling and peer perceptions than children wearing single‐vision spectacles. +8 When worn overnight, patients who use Abiliti™ Overnight lenses typically may participate in sports and other activities with clear vision without the need to wear glasses during the day.**8

Who can wear Abiliti™ Overnight lenses?
Children as young as 6 years old and adults who are assessed with myopia up to 4.00D may be fitted with ACUVUE® Abiliti™ Overnight lenses.8 Additionally, patients with refractive astigmatism of up to 1.50D may be fitted with ACUVUE® Abiliti™ lenses for astigmatism.5

Why should I consider Abiliti™ Overnight lenses to manage my child’s myopia?
Experts believe that managing myopia in children starting at a young age may make an important difference. In studies, patients who wear Abiliti™ Overnight lenses report better rates of overall vision and perform better in school, as compared to kids who wear glasses.‡8
