Contact lenses are a convenient alternative to glasses for many. Improved vision, ease, safety and comfort are priorities for patients buying contact lenses. One type or make of lens never suits all eyes so as an independent optician we can offer a contact lens to suit you whatever your lifestyle and we only stock high quality leading brands. We can supply daily, monthly and extended wear contact lenses. Contact lenses can be produced in single vision, multi-focal and astigmatic formats.
Rigid gas permeable contact lenses are custom made for your eyes and continue to have a place within the contact lens market. Even though they are less comfortable than soft lenses, they may well give superior vision overall. Patients requiring these lenses sometimes have irregular corneas or “keratoconus.” Only a couple of years ago gas permeable lenses or a corneal transplant were the only option available to them. One of the most exciting recent developments in soft contact lenses is the advent of lenses which can give excellent vision for these patients.
The majority of our patients who wear contact lenses most days pay by convenient, monthly standing order. The charge includes lenses and solutions plus all your professional check-ups and after-care, as well as entitling you to 20% off a pair of glasses, should you wish to have a back-up. You can, of course, pay for lenses when you need them but don’t forget that regular contact lens check ups are essential for monitoring the health and comfort of your eyes.
