Dr / Amr Hegazy has had a head start in introducing this technique of treatment in Egypt and the Middle East since 2002, the Dream lens is a special type of RGP contact lenses with high Oxygen permeability (FDA Approved).

Orthokeratology (Dream Lens) is the technique that employs specially designed gas permeable contact lenses to reshape the corneal surface, Reducing nearsighted, where the lenses are worn only during sleep, Then patients can go through the day without correction and usually enjoy a good vision.
