About Contact Lens Wear
Contact lenses give you convenience of life without glasses. Often your vision may be clearer than it is with spectacles. Almost everyone who wears glasses will be able to use contact lenses. Some will use contact lenses on an irregular basis for special occasions or sport whereas others will wear them every day.
Contact lenses require new measurements separate to your spectacle prescription. All new contact lens wearers will be required to attend an eye examination and a contact lens tuition, which will teach you how to use contact lenses correctly.
We will choose a contact lens type which suits your lifestyle and your prescription.
Disposable lenses are available in a variety of designs to suit most prescriptions. These include:
These are worn once then discarded. They are ideal for sports or occasional wear.
Extended Wear Lenses
These can be worn continuously for a periods of up to 30 days. They are made from natural materials which allow the eye to breathe and stay healthy. Regular eye health checks will still be required.
These can be worn by people requiring vision correction at both close and far.
Soft Contact Lens Care
