Patients are motivated to wear contact lenses for different reasons. Some people just want that freedom from spectacle wear, others like to have different eye colours for different days of the week! No matter what your reason is, there is a good chance we have a lens suited to you. Being an Independent Optician, we have no affiliations or bias with a particular company. This means that the lens we fit for you will be whatever is best for your requirements.

Are you suitable for Contact Lenses?

 

Not everyone is suitable for contact lenses and for this reason our Optometrists will closely assess and measure your eyes to determine a lens that is suitable for you.

Types of contact lenses

 

  • Dailies – wear for one day and then throwaway at the end of the day.
  • Fortnightly/ monthly – clean and then store the lenses using Contact lens solution your Optometrist recommends.
  • Extended wear – depending on lens type, you can wear your lenses through the day and through the night for up to 28 consecutive days.
  • Rigid Gas Permeable – good option for people who want crisp vision and those who suffer from allergic reactions to contact lenses
  • Cosmetic lenses – Change your eye colour
  • Multifocal lenses freshlook

Our Optometrist will take all the measurements needed to make sure that your eyes are suitable for these lenses and to ensure that your lenses achieve an optimum fit.

What colour of contact lens to go for? Do you want to go for a bold change to make a statement at tonight’s party? Or do you want a subtle change in eye colour just for a change?

Our Optometrist will do the technical stuff and we’ll leave the colour choice to you!
