Get to know us
Hi, nice to meet you! We’re so glad you’re here. We’d like to introduce ourselves and let you know how Ocusleep™ came to be.
We are eye doctors, but more importantly, we are parents. This all started when we noticed our own children having trouble falling asleep after long days and evenings on screens, particularly during remote learning. Even after this period of time, we realized that electronic devices are always going to be a part of our daily lives and wished there was something we could do to help not only our children, but everyone who uses these devices regularly. So, we turned to one of the things we know best, science.
Staring at illuminated devices can stimulate the brain and suppress the body’s natural production of melatonin, a hormone that signals the body to fall asleep.
For relief, Americans have turned to melatonin supplement pills at a startling rate. These pills are not FDA-regulated and have a total of 66 known drug interactions. They also come with a host of potential side-effects, including daytime drowsiness, short term depression, irritability, dizziness, and stomach cramps. We don't know much about the long-term safety of these products either, particularly with still-developing children.
After learning about the side effects of melatonin, we no longer felt confident giving it to our kids, or even taking it ourselves. We then set out to develop the safest product that could naturally help with insomnia. While they were the reason why we started on this path, this product is great for everyone, of all ages.
All Ocusleep lenses are custom made to your exact specifications in our world class New York facilities. Our dedicated customer service department is also located in the same building.
When it comes to our loved ones, we want only the safest, scientifically-tested products. As doctors and as parents, we are very proud and confident of the safety and natural effectiveness of Ocusleep™. We can’t wait for you to try a pair!
