Nocturnal Night Lens | Custom fit contact lens

Orthokeratology at its simplest and most advanced.

Nocturnal™ Orthokeratology (Ortho-k) is the process of wearing a contact lens only when sleeping that corrects short-sight. Stable corrected vision is provided all day without the use of contact lenses or spectacles. The process is reversible and in 2010 established by the FDA as having the same safety as soft contact lenses.

Scott Brown, Clinical Director of Scotlens, along with his father Jack Brown before him, is an Optometrist who pioneered some of the earliest Ortho-K lenses that were brought to market. Indeed Scotlens was proud to boast the UK’s first CE Ortho-K lens. A recognised UK specialist in Orthokeratology lenses, Nocturnal™ Ortho-k lenses have been the first lens choice for many Eye Care Providers since 2003. Their patients have been benefiting for greater eye comfort, the freedom of having “naturally good eyesight” and the potential of myopia control.

Whilst the Nocturnal™ lens design has remained unchanged since 2008, the fitting assessment and corneal measurement has been evolving so that Nocturnal™ lenses now have one of the highest first lens fit success rates in the industry. This is only possible with the unique Scotlens Lathe2i™ manufacturing process that we use to ensure we meet our ambition to always be the most accurately finished lens in the UK. As we finish our lenses to such a high standard, at the time of writing we are still the only UK specialist GP lens manufacturer who has no need to polish our lenses. Our aim is to be the recognised ‘Rolls Royce’ of the sector, to ensure we meet our ‘Best quality | Best fit | Best result’ target every time.

Nocturnal™ providers not only know that they are providing the best contact lens care for their patients but also see their patient numbers growing.

Patients increasingly find their eye becoming dry and uncomfortable at the end of a long day at the computer, only a contact lens that isn’t worn in front of the PC can fix this… Nocturnal™.

Patients want the flexibility to swim at the gym or with their kids without worrying about lens contamination or loss, only a contact lens that isn’t worn during the day can give total freedom… Nocturnal™.

If you are an eyecare provider that doesn’t offer Nocturnal™ then why not find out more about it by watching our Training Videos. Or better still join us at a training day or conference.

EXPLAINER VIDEO: How do night lenses work?

Nocturnal is a non-surgical process that uses reverse geometry contact lenses to reshape the cornea of the eye while you sleep. So when you wake up Nocturnal Contact Lenses™ will have corrected the focusing power of the eye which means that you would not have to wear spectacles or contact lenses during the day.



Nocturnal™ is our world class Ortho-K night lens. In collaboration with Avizor, our recommended contact lens solution and dry eye supplier, we set out to produce a market leading premium product to match the expectation of your patients. Every patient has a special unboxing experience to enhance this life transforming moment of using night lenses for the first time. The high impact patient reaction when they receive the box always reflects well on the ECP who has fitted them, a reminder that to achieve the ‘Best fit, best result’ outcome we seek together, teamwork, between Scotlens and you as the fitter, is essential.
