CONTACT LENSES

If you are ever in a situation where you wish you could be without your glasses, for example while playing sports or going out socially, then contact lenses could be the answer.

We offer a wide range of contact lenses for almost all prescriptions, including:
• short sighted and long sighted prescriptions
• astigmatic prescriptions
• reading prescriptions
• varifocal & bifocal prescriptions

We provide:
• a fitting service for new wearers including a trial of the lenses.
• aftercare for existing wearers to ensure you have the latest and best product.
• a contact lens care scheme which includes unlimited aftercare and reduced contact lens and solution prices.

During your contact lens assessment you will have a consultation so that we understand your requirements and advise you on the best lenses to meet your individual needs. We will then check both the health of the front of the eye and that you have the best fitting lenses possible. If it is your first time, as a contact lens wearer, we teach you insertion and removal of the lenses until you are comfortable with the procedure. On our contact lens scheme we offer unlimited follow up visits for your lenses if you ever have any problems.

Contact lens types explained

Soft Contacts

By far and away the most common type of contact lens worn today. Great for sports activities, daily and also occasional wear, they provide wearers with tremendous freedom such as the ability to wear non-prescription sunglasses.

Daily Disposables

Since these lenses are designed to be worn once daily and then thrown away, they are great for busy individuals who do not have time for the normal soft lens regime of cleaning, disinfecting and storing. Also suitable for occasional wear.

Regular Replacement
Perhaps the most cost-effective lens type is the planned replacement lens. Often, this will be a two-week or monthly cycle where the lens is removed every day and stored overnight.

Rigid Lenses

These lenses can take a little longer to get used to and initially are not as comfortable, but they have the advantage of not needing to be replaced as regularly as soft lenses. They are also suitable for a much larger range of prescription types.
