There has never been a better time to try contact lenses! New technology and lens materials mean that contact lenses have never been so comfortable or affordable. Although not everyone is able to wear contact lenses there is likely to be a contact lens suitable for your lifestyle and budget.

If you would like to try contact lenses you will need to arrange a full sight test and contact lens examination. During these examinations our Optometrist will discuss various types of lenses suitable for the shape of your eye and your visual requirements.

The most popular contact lens mode is soft daily daily disposable contact lens wear. These lenses are a very healthy option reducing the risks of infection and allergy to disinfecting solutions. The lenses we use are generally more comfortable as they are thinner, wetter and transmit more oxygen than most reusable lenses. These lenses are ideal for patients who would like to wear lenses occasionally or regular wearers who do not want to use cleaning solutions and care products.
To help spread the cost of contact lenses all our contact lenses are available on a Direct Debit basis.

If you do wear contact lenses it is important to attend for regular Aftercare appointments so we can carefully monitor the health of your eyes and ensure that we are offering you the best products for your requirements.
